Yes it works :
Hello,



Pin 2 to ground (I connect pin 1 and 2) is the solution for the problem.

Now I can read from Emulator, format the image with Keyboard and also record a midi file from keyboard to Emulator.



Abstract for Roland G-800:

My keyboard has a controller HD63266F and a floppy Chinon FZ-357. Jumper on the Chinon floppy is set to DS0 and MM.

To replace floppy with Emulator you have to do these points:

1. Set the jumper to Drive A ID3

2. Reverse the floppy cable. This means that on Chinon Pin1 is on Emulator Pin 34

3. Connect Pin 1 to Pin 2 from Emulator.

I try to fit this on my keyboard but i dont know how to connect properly the pin-s on back of the emulator. Can you help me ? The emulator is light up the usb stick flashing but the keyboard doesn't see the styles from usb. I got a CD also with some programs wich help me to format the usb in right mode.So I don't know how to make to work.If you can help me with some informations will be grate.. Thanks!!!
