Yamah Disklavier

Post by disklavier » Fri Mar 30, 2018 7:26 pm

Hello everyone,

We have a Yamah Disklavier (self playing piano) approx. 20 years old, in our family that plays midi from floppy disks. It includes piano pieces played and recorded on the piano by deceased relatives. I'm trying to replace the floppy drive by a Gotek USB simulator, the model I have bought is advertised as:

SFR1M44-U100K Black 3.5" 1.44MB USB SSD FLOPPY DRIVE EMULATOR for YAMAHA KORG ROLAND Electronic keyboard GOTEK

I have replaced the floppy drive with the Gotek drive, however the system does not seem to work. I have tried all/most jumper configurations on the back of the Gotek which has effects on the behavior of the system but does not lead to a working solution. The floppy drive in the piano is marked as:

TEAC FD-235HF A568 (P/N: 193077A5-68) (S/N: U758628)

Here is a picture of the jumper configuration of the floppy unit:

I have found some posts referring to HxC as a solution for there Yamaha electronic keyboards. I am by no means an expert in this area and would love to get some directions from you guys as how to get the Gotek working with my disklavier. Any ideas or pointers would be helpful.
