Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

I just use 2gb as the test would be wasted. I use one of those little usb dongles that holds microSD cards and I have quite a few on 2gb microSD cards lying about from old phones etc.

Also if it worked once then it should work again unless it's faulty…

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

I have successfully fitted a Gotek drive to my KN5000 and also to a Yamaha PSR9000. You don't need a 2Gb USB stick, but anything over is wasted, so don't worry. I use a 4Gb on mine and a 32Gb is used on my friend's PSR9000.

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

One more question: You specify a 2GB memory stick. I saw that number someplace else, too. Actually, 2GB thumb drives are hard to come by right now. Most are 16GB and above, on up to 512GB. The 2GB is more than sufficient to hold 1,000 floppies, is th…

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

HEY, spencernj! Thanks so much for the quick and most helpful response.
In order of your comments:

I got the GOTEK emulator working one time only, using a USB stick formatted on the KN to 1,000 floppies. I was never able to do another one either o…

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

Firstly:

The cheap Gotek one like the one you linked to works fine in a KN6000. It seems your only issue was you didn't get the software. Even without the software it will still work fine in the KN but without the software when you put your usb stick …

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

Can anyone tell me the correct emulator for installation to the KN6000? I have tried two different emulators and neither has performed satisfactorily. My first purchase was a “cheap” Chinese-made “GOTEK” which came without any software although the desc…

Re: One Touch Settings Kn5000

Hi, I am wondering what part of the settings you wish to change is it the voices, Tempo, setups ? If you could expand on your question for me and then I hopefully can then advise you further.

Re: KN-6000 Custom feature (Trying [email protected])

I have never known that happen but is it possible that you have no custom styles in your keyboard and that is causing it to go blank whilst it is searching in vain?
