« on: January 12, 2023, 10:16:48 PM »
Hello dear friends, I need to update the psr3000.
1: how do I know what version my psr3000 is
2: with what type of flash drive 4g, 8g, 16g, 32g
3: how to format the flash drive, from the psr or from the computer.
I hope your help thank you very much

Unfortunately the firmware on the PSR3000 can only be upgraded using smart media. Prior to upgrading to the latest firmware, the PSR3000 was FAT16, meaning you couldn't u se a USB stick over 2GB. If you want to make it FAT32, you'll need to track down a Smart Media card, as well as a PC that read/write it so that you can put the firmware onto it.

Yes it's a baffling choice to make it read from Smart Media only.

Hello friend, the reason why I want to update my psr3000, is that it goes out of tune on the right side, I restart it completely, and it works fine for a while and then it goes out of tune again, I disconnected the pitch but it keeps doing it, it's because That's what I want to try with an update, I have a smart media card and reader, I'll try it tomorrow, thank you very much for your help.

I was not able to update it, it seems that the flash drive needs to be formatted in FAT. my notebook does not have it, with the smart media card I could not do it

Hi Charlote,

I recommend formatting the SmartMedia Card directly on the PSR-3000. But make good care that you really format the "CARD" drive, not another drive.

For more information, please see the attached picture (screenshot from PSR-3000 Owner's Manual, page 66).


Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris, I'll give it a try, the serious idea.
1- format the smart media card from the psr3000, as you indicated.
2- once formatted, load the update in the card from the official page yamaha.
3- download the update in the psr3000.
Once again thank you very much for your help
