Hi, I already have an SD card containing a download from Strawberry Music covering a lot of the other Technics Keyboard styles.so I know the card is OK there is masses of spare room, but I do not seem to be able to get the keyboard to recognize the Tyros download, could this because they are in a different format or perhaps I have not carried out the correct procedure?

I downloaded the zip file and then extracted the files and then dragged them into the card using windows explorer.

I checked and the files all show individually but when the card is put into the 7000 only the original download shows.

While in the computer I have noted that the Strawberry download shows as a Private folder which you have to click on several times before you see the files themselves but underneath this folder all the files from the Tyros 3 show individually, but not a sign of them when you put the SD card in the 7000 !

Should I have been better using a floppy disk ? Ken

Re: loading an SD card with the Tyros 3 Y2 swing and Jaz styles

Hi Ken,

Technics files have to be moved onto SD Cards using either floppy disks or the KN-SDExplorer tool.

There are other methods but these are the ones I use so these are the ones I can help with.

The file structure is complicated and you probably noticed that the files within the PRIVATE directory have names that are indecipherable. Unfortunately, that's the way that Technics set it up. So KNSDE has been created to make things easier for you when you use SD Cards.

Using floppy disks you:

- Extract to your hard drive
- Copy the files onto the floppy
- Then use the SD Tools in your keyboard to copy them to the SD Card
- (one folder in the zip = one floppy disk's worth of files).

Using KN-SDExplorer you:

- Extract the files to your hard drive
- Then run the program with your SD Card in your computer
- Right-click on an extracted folder and copy it.
- Right-click in KN-SDExplorer and paste the folder into your SD Card in KN-SDExplorer.
- (one folder in the zip = one folder on your SD Card).

Before you edit anything on your SD Card you should make a backup on your hard drive. You can use KN-SDExplorer to make backups and restore them.

Here is the official KN-SDExplorer Website:

http://software.technicskn7000.com/...

The demo tool will do everything you need and if you find yourself using it a lot and enjoying it you can upgrade to the full version later.

I'm a partner in the KN-SDExplorer program and I provide support for it on the website above, or here.

For anyone who is struggling with this software I will link up to you with Teamviewer and give you a free 20 minute tutorial if you are a registered owner.

I'll also give any of you as much help as you need in the forums, whether you have the registered version or the demo.

Best wishes,
Mike

I have tried the second instruction to use the SD card in the computer, but having downloaded and installed the KN SDExplorer which included automatically putting a shortcut on the desktop when I clicked on the icon (left or right) a computer error came up that it cannot find the file. I did check that the SD card's drive was H.

Can I simply run the styles from the floppy like the old system ? Ken

Hi Ken,

Yes, all the files work with floppy disks unless stated otherwise (some files will be in a folder that say they are for SD Cards, the only difference is the longer names).

One folder in a zip file = One floppy disk's worth of styles.

I'll email you later see if we can hook up and fix your KN-SDExploer.

Best wishes,
Mike
