Don't get me started on floppy drives
I bought a DSM-1 with a floppy drive once, will never do it again. First of all disks that are like 30 years old obviously won't work anymore, but even if you write new disks this seems to fail like half the time for some reason (maybe because the new disks are actually NOS and thus not that reliable, dunno). If I ever get something with a floppy drive again it would have to be with a Gotek drive or similar.
The floppy drive on my SY99 died. Fortunately, I had backed up all the floppies into SoundDiver, but communications aren't reliable with Windows, since my amt8s had to be put aside for lack of drivers
Fortunately, I still have my Power Mac G5 Quad with SoundDiver, and with it, everything works like a charm. Now, every time I want to change the internal memory of my SY99, I have to boot my Power Mac, connect the amt8, connect MIDI cables to and from the SY99, launch SoundDiver and then perform the transfer.
Of course, my floppies will not fail anymore
