« on: November 06, 2020, 09:15:04 PM »
Hello, I have a PSR 9000 and i have replaced the Floppy Drive with a Gotek USB emulator... this is where i am lost now. I have formatted the USB with the included software and i have fomatted anothr drive doing it directly form the emulator by pressing both buttons. Once formatted the USB stick says its only 1.44mb from what I understand once you fornat the USB stick its supposed to have 100 partions?? how to I add Midi files in those partitions? and how do I access those partiotions? Thank you in advance for your advice

I haven't done this myself, but I guess you add the MIDI files the way you did when you used a floppy, press SONG and tab to floppy, and add your MIDI file. The keyboard behaves as if this were a floppy disk. I know there are people here that have done this, and hopefulle they will chime in and explain this better for you than I can do, since I don't have an emulator.

Hi massimona,

which model number is your Gotek USB Floppy Emulator exactly? Is it one of these four models:

I have never worked with such floppy emulators myself. In any case, you will need special software for the PC to copy data to the individual partitions of the specially formatted USB stick. As you have already found out, only the very first 1.44 MB partition is visible on the PC by default. The following downloads may help you here:

You could also check out YouTube videos on this subject:

P.S.
I know from my good friend Frank Steinbrecher (he is owner of a Music Store here in Germany) that there are also USB floppy emulators that do NOT need specially formatted USB sticks. If you go to this type of emulators, you can just make a Folder for each single emulated floppy disk on the USB stick, and that's it.

I'm sure that Frank (his username is "frankmusik") can answer most of your questions. Just send him a PM (Personal Message) here on the forum:
