• Hello,

    It seems you are mixing 2 different projects and 2 different peoples in your post :)). The only one currently supporting QuickDisk on Gotek is the HxC Firmware for Gotek v3.4.1.4a. Have you tested my Gotek HxC firmware supporting the QuickDisk finally ? Let me know ! 🙂

    I will try with flash floppy 3.13a alpha. In theory this firmware is able to read and write quick disk from an to a ald roland sampler

    I have original songs recorded using Roland PR100 & MT32 many years ago. It seems that either the PR100 is now faulty as the disks won’t load, or the disks themselves are. I have no way of knowing which scenario is correct. Is there any way to get back the data straight from the 2.8 QD format without using the PR100?

    Many thanks

      Look for a working quick disk drive and then record the midi out into a software sequencer. I may have a working quick disk drive if you need one.

    Hello I have a Roland W30 with usb instead of the floppy drive. I have been looking at buying a usb loaded with samples for Roland S10, S20, S220, MKS-100 and MT-100. I have asked the seller if the samples work on the W30. He doesn’t know at all but his does know the samples are in .qd format.
    Do you know if .qd works with my W30?

      Hi, only S220, MKS100 and S10 can read .qd sample files. I have all the factory S10 samples in Gotek format which I will load up in my Manuals section. REOb

    I can’t get this to work with my S10. I played some email tennis with Jean Francois but jumper settings etc did not help yet. Did you make it work with an S10?

    Hi Amsynths,
    How did you convert the sample library to Gotek format?
    I have everything up and running on my S-10 and can save samples (although still confused about the USB menu, I assume i am saving it to the blank QD file?)
    I have the samples downloaded as Sysex and wav. and cannot find the workaround to load them on to USB to be read.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I created 100 blank qd images on the usb stick using the right naming convention.
      Then I loaded the S10 with a sample bank by sysex and saved to the Gotek, sample bank by sample bank.
      I can send you a usb stick with all the Roland sample banks, if that helps.

    Thanks for the fast reply. I now understand from your comment that I need a qd image for each sample.
    I would gladly pay you for a USB, your time and postage.
    Thanks again,
    Matt R

    I noticed you had a similar issue to mine, in that you got the verify error when trying to save. Your later update suggests you were able to remedy this issue? I have this issue with my S10. Loads QD images with no issues, but when I try to save, I get the verify error. I’ve got the QD firmware installed. Curious how you were able to successfully save. Thanks!
