Genos - Drive Letters of USB-Stick Ports
« on: November 27, 2017, 08:02:11 AM »
Hi, all together,
GENOS has 3 USB-Ports which USB-sticks can use.
As I know from my Yamaha PSR-S970, the keyboard-internal letter of this USB-drive strictly is "I:/"
I would be grateful if somebody knows something about GENOS's drive-management.
Does GENOS
A - assign fixed drive letters to each of the USB-stick-ports OR
B - assign fixed drive letters to USB-sticks in temporal order of used USB-sticks with the keyboard,
>> for example for A:
USB 1 - I:/
USB 2 - J:/
USB 3 - K:/
>> for example for B:
first USB-Stick (independendly which USB-stick-port is used): I:/
second USB-Stick (independendly which USB-stick-port is used): J:/
third USB-Stick (independendly which USB-stick-port is used): K:/

Does somebody have an idea ?
Thanks in advance,
Klaus
Best Regards, Klaus
... and have fun playing your preferred Keyboard !

Klaus,
USB1 is not alway the Port hidden underneath the keyboard.
Sometimes it appears as USB2.  None the less - it still works just fine.
I have not had any issues so far with the port names.

The hidden USB reads as USB 1. The others will read USB 2 or 3 which ever way you put then in. The only way the main stick may read differently is if you switch on or off with a stick left in the keyboard. This is something I never do so I don't get any problems with it changing.

Why use a USB stick, when you have 58GB USER space?

I use it only for backup.

Many thanks to all of you for your excellent replies.
The link in reply#2 contains exactly that what answered my question, based on Yamaha's feedback.
Background:
I am using Murray Bests's Yamaha Registration Manager very often and especially to change the paths in the registration by batch. A good friend of mine with its new GENOS discussed this object with me today. We were not really sure whether and how the GENOS operating system is doing this job. If the first used USB-Stick (of the three) gets a drive letter coincidently (we thought), a path with I: in the Registration (to find STY- / MID- /TXT-files) could be a problem, if the USB 1 had a different letter. In so far I'm happy with this answer. Thanks again for help !!

@Wim: You are quite right, however, to use a stick as backup - whenever a severe reason exists to use the stick instead of the hard disk - it were a problem if the drive letter would change coincidently.

When you want to use the GENOS USER instead of the USB drive.

Just a view steps:

Copy your USB data to GENOS USER by map
Expansion
MULTI PAD
REGIST
SONG
STYLE
SYSTEM
TEXT
VOICE

When you for instand you have a mixed map with Styles and song and Multi pads.
Just copy the mixed map to all 3 maps STYLE. SONG, MULTI PAD
The Genos will sort it out.
Only styles Will be copy into the STYLE map
Only songs and audio Will be copy into the SONG map
Only multi pads will be copy into the STYLE map

I did used a old program Tyros Global Registration Manager
It will also work for Tyros5 and Genos
Download it here : http://www.kwmusik.dk/Tyros/?id=3

Style check
Find what: E:
Replace with : C:/STYLE

Song check
Find what: E:
Replace with : C:/SONG

Multipad check
Find what: E:
Replace with : C:/MULTI PAD

Select your source registration folder with all subfolders in it
Select your destination folder to put your changed registration for the GENOS user
(may be the same as your source folder, only it will be overwrite)

Then apply in the program.

Then copy your new registration in the GENOS REGIST folder.

Now your registrations will work straight out of the Genos USER.

The only correction is that MULTI PAD has a space. So it needs to be C:/MULTI PAD.

For a lot of us, you're absolutely correct. Believe it or not, some folks have hundreds of GB of stuff on their T5.

I do also have more then 58 GB, so I cut out the audio to the USB1
The I have enough with 58 GB
Also easy to have my audio on USB stick to use elsewhere.
