W5/W7 Floppy disks

Unread post by NotWakeman » Fri Jul 13, 2018 6:45 am

Hi,

My W7 V2 (I bought it used) came with the "Version 2 Demonstration" disk, but the "Factory Set" disk is missing. I have a few questions:
  1. Does anyone have a copy of the files of both disks to share here?
  2. Is the V1 Factory Set disk identical to the V2 Factory Set?
  3. Did anyone succeed in copying the files from the original disks to a PC? I have a USB floppy now that seems to read and write any disks except the original Demo disk. I'm curious to know if it's an issue with this drive or with the disk.

Thanks!

NotWakeman

p.s.: I already contacted Yamaha support, I believe they did make a good effort, but couldn't find an archived copy of those files. :? :cry:

Have added some files in the downloads section. Not sure if they will be of any use to you?

Thanks! I've just downloaded them, will do a test when I find some time.

Still looking for a copy of the Factory Set disk. Just in case I ever need to reset the keyboard.

Thanks,

I think the INTVOICE.A1V in that collection is the Factory Disk however I did also find the file that includes intvoice.a1v as well as the demo data disk. Have added it to the downloads. Hope that works for you?

Hey Saul,

Yes, the disk should contain an "INTVOICE.A1V" and a "W_DEMO.A1A". Looks like you've found them!

Thank you SO much, that's a big relief.

Now I just need to figure out how to back up the V2 demo disk, but that's a much lower priority.

Cheers,

NotWakeman
