Hi Just wanted to say Hello and ask my first question I have a Korg i3 old but a very good unit, the floppy has given up the ghost and I have replaced it with a Gotek USB emulator. The new drive formats and partitions the USB stick ok and the connections and jumper are in the correct place however, the keyboard does not see the disks with an error saying "no disk in the drive". I have searched the Web for a solution but as the keyboard is 20-year old I am not having a lot of luck has anyone come up against the same issue in the past? I suspect that there may be a problem with the floppy interface board, but without spending more money on spare parts I cannot be sure.
Regards
John
