Can't transfer midi files to Yamaha midi keyboard

Hello,
I have Yamaha PSR-630 midi keyboards. In the past I used to download midi files on my computer, put them on a floppy disk and play them on the keyboards via the built in floppy reader. Unfortunately, now I can't do that because neither my Mac nor my PC (Windows 10) can read the USB portable diskette drive I recently bought because it's compatible only with Windows XP and earlier versions.
I also got this USB to MIDI keyboard interface converter but I don't think it's designated for transferring midi files from Mac or PC into Yamaha keyboards.

Does anyone have an idea how to solve it?
Thank you!

If you run a Linux virtual machine on your PC you'll be able to access, read and write almost any disk format you could imagine.

What is this "USB portable diskette drive" that you bought?

There are USB floppy drive emulators that you can buy to replace the floppy drive of your keyboard and turn it into a port for a USB flash drive. You might want to consider getting one of those so you won't need to keep using floppy disks.
