Welcome.

Where did you format the usb flash drive?

It should be formatted in the Yamaha.

If you did format it in the Yamaha try using a different usb flash drive

(1) If you want to find a USB flash drive that will work, I would recommend that you not use a USB 3.x drive. The manual specifically states on page 196 that the PSR-3000 can use a USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 drive, but that it reads and writes at USB 1.1 speeds. I'm guessing that if you use a USB 3.x drive, it won't be compatible. Stick with USB 2.x. Yamaha has a list of USB flash drives that are known to be compatible with the PSR-3000, but the list hasn't been updated in a few years:


(2) If you're just trying to transfer a MIDI song recording from the keyboard, an alternative to using a USB drive is to connect the keyboard to a computer. Then, if the recording is already formatted as an individual Standard MIDI File (as opposed to Yamaha's non-standard internal format), you can use the free Yamaha Musicsoft Downloader program to transfer the file from your keyboard's internal memory to your computer. If the recording hasn't been saved as a Standard MIDI File yet, it might be necessary to play the recording on the keyboard and record the MIDI output on your computer using a DAW.

Size may also be a problem, depending on your version of firmware, which you need to check. Early versions used FAT-12, then FAT-16 formatting, which could only handle USB Flash Drives up to 1 and 2 Gb, respectively. The latest (final) version of firmware is 1.8, which formats at FAT-32, and can handle USB Flash Drives and USB externally powered hard drives of just about any size. Firmware Version 1.7 can be updated from either a Smart Media Card or a USB Flash Drive, but versions prior to 1.7 MUST be updated from a Smart Media Card. So, if you have an early version, you will be looking for a 3 volt (NOT 5) Smart Media Card with Version1.8 firmware on it. Not an easy task these days. I had one that I loaned out, but it supposedly got lost in the return mailing. If you need one, perhaps someone over on the PSR Tutorial Forum could loan you one. You should still be able to purchase a blank one online and download the firmware from the Yamaha website:

https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/firm_psr-3000.html

but of course, if you have version 1.7, you only need download 1.8 and put it on a USB Flash Drive and update it from there.

To check the firmware version, look to the right of the display for 4 small buttons under the label MENU. press the second button from the left labeled FUNCTION. At the upper right corner of the display press the TAB buttons to tab over to the OWNER screen. Down the right side of the display PRESS AND HOLD the I ("eye") button next to the OWNER NAME label for about 5 seconds and a window with the firmware version will pop up. To leave this screen press the G OK button, then press the EXIT button twice to return to the home screen.
