KN-SDExplorer is a great program to organize your KN2600/KN7000 SD-cards. I have tried it out for a long time and I really love this program.

Managing the songs on your SD Card, using the keyboard, is very time consuming. While loading a song is fast, compared with diskettes, the saving takes much time. So moving or copying a song from one folder to another takes a lot of time. And renaming a Song is also tedious and slow. Imagine the time you spend on re-arranging an SD card in such a way.

Who doesn't know how Windows Explorer works? Almost everybody knows. KN-SDExplorer behaves exactly like Explorer, can be started as application like Explorer, but is also integrated in Explorer. This means that everybody is able to use KN-SDExplorer on the fly.

You can download a trialversion and read more about the KN-SDExplorer here:

Note: Until further notice the developers tells that the KN-SDExplorer is only compatible for Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The developers hope to make it compatible with Win98 and Windows ME soon.

Specifications of the KN-SDExplorer Application.

Windows PC with an SD-Card reader. This can be any model. The application can even be used without card reader, since backup and restore can also be done to the SD card in the KN keyboard and to the hard disk on the PC. However the performance of backup/restore to the SD card in the keyboard is very slow. And because simple card readers are very cheap (about $10) a card reader is highly recommended. In the further information the use of a Card reader is even assumed.

As the name of the application already indicated, the KN-SDExplorer tool behaves very much like the Windows explorer. The difference is that in the KN-SDExplorer the songs are treated/managed as files and the folders as directories. The only difference between a song in KN-SD-Explorer and a file in Windows Explorer is that songs have a number. Therefore we have two ways of removing a song in a folder: Erase (song position is cleared) and Delete (like file delete: song and its song position are deleted). The application is interfaced/integrated in Windows Explorer: Right mouse button click (RMC) on any directory of a Technics tree (PRIVATE\TECHNICS\KN7000) opens KN-SDExplorer in the same way as starting Explorer via RMC on the Windows Start button.

Also the option is given to backup the song tree to an SDB file. The same RMC action on a backup (sdb-)file gives the possibility to restore that backup, to SD Card, hard disk, USB stick, whatever. The backup- and restore functionality is the same as in Technics Songmanager. However the Merge function is not present in KN-SDExplorer, because a much better functionality is in the tool; selective merging.

Renaming Songs and Folders: just as simple as renaming a single file or directory. Renaming a Song in KN-SDExplorer results in automatically renaming all files, which belong to the Song.

Moving and Copying Songs: again like Windows Explorer Songs can be moved from one Folder to another using drag and drop technique, the CTRL-C/CTRL-V shortcuts or the Copy, Move and Paste functions from the menu.

Multiple Songs can be selected and moved or copied. Adding songs to a full folder (20 Songs) or directories to full card (99 Folders) is prohibited of course.

Backup/Restore: The same Backup/Restore functionality as in the Song Manager software, that came with your keyboard. However, you don't need that tool anymore, since all functionality is integrated in KN-SDExplorer.

Selective Merging!: The Song Manager tool has a Merge functionality to combine two backups (sdb-files) to one. The Selective Merging of KN-SD-Explorer is howevermuch more flexible and powerful.
Suppose you have some folders and songs on your SD Card and you want to add certain folders/songs from an sdb file to your SD Card, just restore the sdb-file on your hard disk, then open a KN-SD-Explorer instance for it (RMC on the PRIVATE, TECHNICS or KN7000 directory), do the same for your SD card. Now you have two KN-SD-Explorer windows; the title bar shows which song tree each KN-SD-Explorer holds. Now you can move Folders and/or Songs from one SD-Explorer window to the other. So you can move Songs from SD Card to Hard disk and vice versa.

Import/Export of Songs and Folders: You can also copy songs from Windows Explorer into KN-SDExplorer and vice versa. This is called importing and exporting. This is very handy. For example a fast way to import songs from internet, like the site, is as follows:

On the site each songs is compressed to a zip file. Open the file instead of download. Now the contents of the zip-file is shown in the WinZip tool (or any other like Winrar). Select the song file in the zipfile and drag them to a folder in KN-SDExplorer. The song is now presented in the tool like the other songs and can be managed accordingly. To give you an idea of the power of the tool: in approx. 15 minutes I can download and import 20 songs on the SD Card. Compare with your conventional way: download and unzip the songs on one or more diskettes and load and save them one by one in the keyboard. How much time does that take you?

Sorting Songs and Folders alphabetically: Not much to say about this. Like in Windows Explorer you can sort songs in a folder and folder in the tree. This ofcourse will show the same whay when you use your SD-card in your KN2600/KN7000.

Generate SD Card index: From KN-SDExplorer you can export an index of your folder and song structure in either .txt or .rtf format.

Find songs: In the find dialog you enter part of a song name and some song data types. KN-SDExplore will find any songs that match on the SD Card.
