The 2000 is old enough that only floppy discs were available then...
I have a 2100 which has the same issue - it is my back-up keyboard to my S950.

Two choices I know of are:

You can replace the floppy disk drive with a USB emulator unit (or find someone who will do it), but this can cost quite a bit - there are many examples on YouTube of people doing this. It is quite a project.
There are several posts on this website about this - a current one is shown at the link below...

Or, as I decided to do...
I bought an external Floppy Disk drive which connects to a USB port on my computer (found one for about $30.00 Canadian dollars a few years ago now). Then I download files from my computer to a floppy disk and access them with the floppy drive on the keyboard (many surplus stores will still have some floppy disks available). Of course, if your number of files is large you will need more than one floppy - I ended up with about 10 floppies that I would always take on a gig with me.
