Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

It formats HD disks and it shows up as 71% but reading another forum this is actually correct and nothing to be alarmed about. So the whole 1.44mb does get formatted. I just wanna thank ebayer cpmagneticmedia even though he's probably not reading this. he was very helpful in the messaging to try and...

Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

right what the h**l, I'm just gonna buy this YE-DATA drive anyway. I'll just assume that pin 34 on that big chip has been cut and bent up to be connected to the P16 blob. this MUST be something to do with the Ready signal. We shall see. I'll keep you lot updated when stuff arrives and gets done! oh ...

Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

ok the YE-DATA YD-702D-6537D one looks promising. The mod diagram is clear. Also there happens to be a couple for sale on ebay. Never heard of 'Ye Data' though.

Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

I wish that S├ębastien Ligez dude hadn't gone AWOL. he was the ONLY man in the world that understood the s950 floppy. I bought from him before and it worked straight away out the parcel with no problems... that was my old s950... I have a new s950 now. On his site there's actually brands of floppie d...

Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

Re: akai s1000 - sample chopping

Re: s950 floppy drive replacement

oh and in repsonse to the gotek/hxc. I love the idea of it and that people do it, but I'm all about the floppies! I just find them more magical for some reason lol

I do actually have a gotek drive that I may one day install in one of my samplers but just not the 950
