Yamaha SU700 music production tool

Post by chuchin » Fri Aug 12, 2016 3:12 am

Hello all, i recently bought a REV F SD Floppy Drive Emulator for my Yamaha SU700 Sampler but can´t get it to work because it doesn´t recognize the SD card.

This is what i have done already:

1-Replaced the sampler´s zip unit with the floppy emulator.
2-Selected the ID1-A jumper (other yamaha devices uses this one)
3-Formated a SanDisk Ultra (30MB/s) HC-I, 16GB SD Card with the next format: "MS-DOS (FAT 32) - MBR"
*I am doing this process with an iMac OS X El Capitan.
4-Introduced the SD Card into the sampler to can format it but the floppy emulator doesn´t recognize the card and the sampler says the card is protected.
*The physical card lock is set to off

I would like to know if someone has an idea of what could be the problem.

Thanks a lot guys!

Jeff

You need at at least an file image (HFE) and one CFG file on the SD.
I think that i have answered you by email.

It does. Use the 1.44MB PC images with the ID1-A switch set to on.

Thank you Jeff for your reply.

Could you give me a brief description of the instructions to install the unit and how to program the USB stick, just so I have an idea of what I'm getting myself into?

What does "use the 1.44MB PC images and IDI-A switch" mean?
Please, forgive my lack of knowledge.
