Re: Hello from Gödöllő, Hungary

Greetings! Nice to see another US user. This board is very quiet lately, sorry about that, I guess we're all off doing our own thing. I too need to dig into this machine and create a few patches of my own, but I have so little time these days, working …

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

Which gave me another thought - you can try both 720 and 1.44 formatting (but your USB drive probably doesn't support 720k)

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

I always get the Sony USB MPF82E because they support 720k as well as 1.44mb. They also support Macs.

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

Thank you. That is very good information. I can still return the drive if it turns out to be the issue. I have used Technics turntables for decades and my experience has always been that Technics' manufacturing is ultra reliable.

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

I upgraded your membership.

Sounds crazy but try formatting a disk several times in the WSA1 and then writing to it. That has worked for me sometimes.

My son is the Mac expert I'll also see if he has ideas, we had some problem with Mac and USB drive…

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

The pre-formatted disk is a good idea.

I've struggled to get reliable USB floppy drives. For that reason I have bought several Sony USB drives off Ebay, they seem to be the best. I'm not saying it's the USB drive but in my experience, it always has bee…

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

Thanks! I'll try that! The WSA1 can write to the disk and read back from it, it just can't read from the disk created by my Mac and my Mac can't read from the disk created by the WSA1. I'll also try a new pre-formatted disk and will report back if that he…

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

It sounds as though your drive needs to be serviced. You could try a head cleaner. I had to run a head cleaner about 20 times on my WSA1 when I first got it.
Try some midi files. You could try a commercial midi disk because that might help you to tell wh…

Re: INFO ON SYS-EX DUMPS

Hello, I hope you don't mind me bringing up an old thread. I purchased a USB floppy drive and am not having luck using it to transfer sounds between the WSA1 and computer. I have tried with both PC and Mac, neither seems able to read the WSA1-formatted di…
