These adapters are what you need to replace a failed floppy drive in many older boards.

THIS one is for the SY85 . . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-SY-85 ... SwoydWqlJm

But DO CHECK the advertiser's OTHER ITEMS for variants for OTHER BOARDS -

W5 and W7 for instance . . . .

There are THREE PAGES of variants, I noticed Yamaha, Technics, Korg and Roland models . . . . . Check!

Preferred floppy Drives are mentioned, as are some usb emulators . . .
