    - More good news..


    I decided to get both floppy drives.. in case one dies eventually.. They are not new [to my knowledge]...

    Also, Jeff said he has a bench and music racks for my MX2.. but it will be awhile before I can get them.

    So, everything is working out brilliantly!

    SUCCESS !!!

    I just finished installing the working Floppy Drive!

    The project took about 3 hours...

    I discovered a way to remove the floppy without dismantling 2/3's of the organ!

    However, it did require some other tasks to complete.

    Inside the organ [from behind], the floppy drive can slide out.. BUT --

    I had to remove a useless wood support, and then move 2 small circuit boards temporarily out of the way...
    Once that was done, I was able to slide the Floppy Drive/RAM Card unit out!

    I then swapped out the bad drive with a working one, and then reversed my procedures.

    Since I was 'winging' all this, one issue led to another, and that's why the entire job took so long.

    I am now going to upload some pictures on my Gallery, and when they are ready, I will post a link..


    The MX2 is now fully functional!

    If/when I need to replace this floppy drive, it will take a lot less time now that I have a 'system' to follow!

    I love it when a task is successful!!

    -- Things are getting stranger.. heh

    The other day, the seller of the MX2 text'd me, and apologized [again] for not getting back to me.

    I was told he is having some very difficult times, and will ship me the bench and music rack.
    As 'usual', I said 'okay'..

    At this point, if it happens.. it happens. I'm not holding my breathe...

    Regardless of this, I will eventually have a bench and music rack!

    Jeff told me he also has the 'extra' music rack extender ... nice.

    Even though I cannot sight-play, on rare occasion, I do use sheet music for difficult passages, etc.

    Hopefully soon, I will record a song.. Things have been rough here with allergy season being the worst in years.. and my medication not fully helping..

    Happy to hear things are working out for you - you probably realize by now that there are a lot of us following along with your saga, and rooting for you and your MX2! (even if we don't comment that often, I mean)

    I definitely know how it is to have to try and find the matching bench to an organ that has been deprived of its original one. (Why do people do that?!?) I once found the precise matching bench to an Allen, four years and 1000 miles away from where I had picked up the organ! And the finish even matched almost perfectly. So it does happen, I'm sure your set will be complete one day too.

    Congrats on getting the floppy drive installed and working.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks! Even if the seller doesn't come through with the bench and rack, Jeff at Royal Music said he will sell me those.. so I'm covered..

    I'm glad folks like my posts and stuff. You all are my friends! I have none out in the remote area I live...

    So CHEERS! and a tip of the hat to all of you for being here!

    Wow!

    I hit the 'Jackpot' !!
    ---


    I had 'just enough' room on my card to buy something I needed - and couldn't find for a LONG time!

    I saw on Ebay, not just one, but TWO Kawai DC-32 RAM Cards!! -- for only $50 for both!!

    This was just too hard to resist.. and they should arrive in a few days!

    So now, I'm fully equipped with Floppy's and 2 large-capacity RAM cards!

    So now I need to 'get with it'.. and start recording and creating registrations and stuff! heh

    I've not felt well for some months, so I haven't been doing much of anything.. but I'm on the mend, and I hope to start doing stuff again!

    Marc has been busy, Marc has.... I just love the excitement when something happens and you post it. Often I am kind of inspired to do something to share in that excitement... often do, and ending up with more stuff than I need..... but who cares, its fun!

    Thanks Marc.

    I've been running late today, and I just now went to the post office..


    The memory cards arrived!!! Wow! They look brand new! All shiny!

    Tomorrow, I will try them out.

    I wasn't expecting to find memory cards at a reasonable price, and I have 2 now.. and the 32 meg ones.. for less than what most in the past had sold them for on ebay - just for one!


    I'll let you know how it works out..
