New to me Tyros 1
« on: June 11, 2017, 07:38:50 AM »
Hi, finally got round to getting a better keyboard than my PSR400. ( had a hand injury that stopped me playing for many years) but I have hit a couple of problems. Bought this as my keyboard instructor has one of these, as well as a 5 ( which i could not afford  :( )
First off, does anyone have any software for Windows 10 that I can use to connect to the keyboard?
Second, the OS on the keyboard is 1.0. so no access to the USB connectivity to the HDD, which i believe was a part of the 1.2 update ( which I assume must have had to be loaded through the FDD), but i cannot find this, only the 1.4 update which has to be loaded through the USB - Catch 22 here.
Many of the links in the various threads below have expired - to be expected - and i do appreciate that this is an old keyboard but can anyone help.
Be great to hear from other users of this fantastic bit kit.

According to the installation PDF included in the Ver. 1.4 download package, the update is carried out from your computer, via one of it's USB ports connected to the keyboard's USB type B socket on the rear, using a USB A-B (printer) type cable.  However you must have a Yamaha USB MIDI Driver installed on the computer.

This connection was available even with the original Ver 1.10 firmware, so I can't see why it wouldn't work for this upgrade.  You don't need HDD USB Storage Mode to already be functional for it.

Yamaha firmware upgrades usually contain anything included in previous update versions, so you should be able to go directly from Ver. 1.10 to 1.4 without bothering with Ver. 1.20

Forget about the hard disk for the moment and see if you can get the computer and Tyros communicating via USB.  If this is successful you should then be able to carry out the firmware update.

If you want to be sure about this, why not contact your local Yamaha Technical Support.

The driver should be available from the Yamaha site.

Took an age to locate - thanks Google ! - so for anyone else :-
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/downloads/firmware_software/mididrivers/

Apparently the USB MIDI driver installed  ok when connected to the T1.Problem. The update software cannot find the usb driver !!
Have installed it - checked out the list of USB devices and there was one with a MS driver - uninstalled, rebooted (pc and T1) still no Yamaha driver listed !
Ian
You mentioned that this was available in V1.1. How about 1.0 as that is what is on the T1 currently.

OK, I meant that the USB connection to a computer was available with the first version of the firmware on the Tyros, which you have now confirmed was Ver. 1.00 rather that 1.10!  Apologies for any confusion that this may have caused!

You said  ''Apparently the USB MIDI driver installed  ok when connected to the T1".

The MIDI driver does not install automatically!  You have to initiate the installation yourself.  Have you confirmed that a suitable driver is installed by trying a suitable MIDI program which allows you to select the MIDI input/output when connected to the keyboard?

Can you see and select the Tyros as the MIDI input/output?  It will probably appear as 'Yamaha MIDI 0-1' or similar, or if you have installed one of the latest Yamaha MIDI drivers, 'Digital Workstation 1', or similar rather than 'Tyros'   Which version of the Yamaha USB MIDI driver is installed?

I think that I saw somewhere that MIDI driver version 1.61 was required, but I think that any version higher than this should work.

In addition to the 'installation_os_upgrade_usb' PDF fie, there is a 'troubleshooting guide' in the 'Readme.txt' file included in the firmware download package.  Have you referred to this?

I have no idea what the image attached to your last post is supposed to show! It seems to have nothing to do with this problem!   ???

Ian

I remember well that doing an update for Tyros 1 required you to have five clean floppy disks to download onto. They then had to go into the Tyros in the right order. The keyboard told you when to load the next one.

That sounds like a Tyros without a hard drive.

Having a hard drive made no difference to the way you had to update.
