KN7000 Downloads to SD Cards

KN7000 Downloads to SD Cards

I think it’s generally accepted as normal practice when downloading KN7000 files to drop them onto floppy disk in order to get the files transferred into your keyboard. The problem with this is you finish up spending loads of time cataloguing floppies and waiting, what seems an inordinate amount of time, searching for files and then waiting for them to load. There is a better way that’s more convenient and faster.

You should have had supplied with the keyboard an SD card reader/writer that will plug into a USB port on your PC, but if not they are not expensive to buy. Like most people I have bought a larger SD card (64mb) than the 8mb one supplied with the keyboard. I find that 64mb is more than adequate for my purposes. I use it to hold all my KN7000 files and back it up periodically on to my PC using the card reader/writer. I use the 8mb SD card to hold all my download files and as necessary will copy specific files to my general purpose 64mb SD card.

The following routine is how to set up a separate SD card for downloads. Below this is how to set up an SD card that you may be using to hold other KN7000 files.

1. Place the SD card in the reader/writer and remove all other files. This clearing out is on the assumption that this card is for downloads only.

2. Create the following folder structure:
PRIVATE ...TECNICS... KN7000

3. In the KN7000 folder set up the following sub-folders
CUSTOM
TFDL001
TFDL002
TFDL003
Etc.

The “CUSTOM” folder is to hold any styles (.CST files)
The “TFDL0nn” folder represents the KN7000 folders you see when actioning SD Load etc. on the keyboard.
(001 is folder 01, 002 is folder 02, …0nn is folder nn where the maximum value for nn is 99)

4. Most downloads are presented as zip files. Unzip the downloaded file and copy all the resultant files into one of the above TFDL folders.

5. When you put the SD card into the keyboard and press SD Load you will see an un-named folder structure inside of which will be the KN7000 “Songs” that you have downloaded. If you wish you can now name the folders using the keyboard facilities.

6. On subsequent/future downloads you may need to create additional “TFLD0nn” folders in order to cater for the new “song” files.

Using existing SD CARD:

1. Load card into reader/writer
2. Scroll down to KN7000 folder
3. Add a TFDL0nn folder, as above, where nn may represent a range of KN7000 folders not in use

You now have all your downloads in one place with easy access and fast uploads to your keyboard.

Hope you’ve found that useful – happy downloading.

i understand that there is a max of 99 tfdl folders, but how many styles/songs can be placed in one folder, or is it that you use folder 001 for e.g. slowfox, folder 002 for rock music etc.
tks for you replying

AngryStill don't quite understand ??? I have the files in my computer..then I unzip it by Winzip..( I tried to copy to a floppy)
no it didn't work. now I connect the card reader to the computer and view the SD card from My Computer's removable disk drive, yes Custom and KN7000 folders are there. but when I put it into the keyboard, NOTHING not even the folders show up???? Can you help. Thanks:

Yes this is because your KN7000 is using a .info file on the SD-card that tells what files the SD-card contains. This .info file is not edited when you add files using Windows Explorer. So when KN7000 reads the info file it does not tell the KN7000 that there are new files on it.

This is where the great KN-SDExplorer software, from Fred Mellink, comes handy. This software is opereated about same way as Windows Explorer, and the software keeps editing the .info file so your KN7000 will know what is on the SD-card.
