Hi Paul - I am a bit late with my reply here, maybe you have found this out on your own by now - But even then it still may help others:

With windows XP/2000 operating system you do not need drivers for the A4000 - You just simply install the device about 7times with "no driver" option in windows
- On restarting your PC this request should then not reappear any more.
- This strange behaviour is typically for SCSI-connected Samplers,
even the Emu-Samplers (III/IV series) are working the same way and do come with any drivers.
What you do need in your PC is an PCI-SCSI Card like from Adaptec with an external Fast-SCSI connector, and this card has to be windows compatible. Most Adaptec Cards do not need drivers from Adaptec, but work with standard Windows drivers. It does not have to be an Adaptec, DAWI or other manufactures also can work fine.
Also it makes sense to update the ASPI-layer in windows, which needs
latest ASPI-package for windows XP from Adaptec.
The connection might work without installing the Adaptec package,
but for my system it always was needed.

When you want to send samples in *.wav format to and from your sampler you do need an 3rd party software. Originally the A4000 came with such an software from Yamaha, but this is not working on my Windows XP Home PC. The application can be started, but it just does not connect with my A4000.

What does work is a software like Soundforge in latest version.
But this is a quite expensive package.
Crucially for sound exchange is to disable the write protection in the A4000 Midi-utility menue - This is "on" standard every time the A4000 is turned on - So this has to be turned off every time the A4000 is power cycled.
What finally has worked with my PC is sending Samples to the A4000. The other way round really caused me headaches, but it just won't work and even freezes my PC. So I have given up on trying this variation.
I have to add I have really nearly tried all tricks here, including other cables, and even swapped the SCSI-adapter. With my older PC with windows XP without SP2 it had worked in the past. But with my new PC there is no way. To circumfere this I work with 100MB Zip disks. All you need here is an external SCSI-Zip drive and some disks.
The Zip-disks can be written by the PC, have to be formatted with FAT16 format. From this media the A4000 can import nearly any 16bit 44Khz Wav-file, and the A4000 can write / export samples to such an ZIP-disk.
Another option is writing the Samples to an PC-CD-Rom, and importing this with the A4000 - this also works fine.
Writing Backups from the Sampler Harddisk to CD-Rom I found out the hard way requires an Yamaha-SCSI-CD-Writer - Any other SCSI-writer failed here. But these were quite cheap on German Ebay some months ago.

hope it helps you

There is a brand new SCSI batch transfer freeware for the A3000 A4000 A5000 Samplers in development! Search Google for happyaxk and look at the video. This makes me to dig up my old A3000 I hope it will be coming soon.

@ V Weiden

Dude, you've really helped me out here! Just ressurecting my A4000 after years of neglect (i.e. Kontact) and just spent the last 3 hours trying to get my PC to 'see' the A4000. I'd forgotton how much of a b1tch it was to resolve the SCSI issue and it was this that fixed it:

"Also it makes sense to update the ASPI-layer in windows, which needs
latest ASPI-package for windows XP from Adaptec."

Without that I'd be banging my head against the wall for days! MASSIVE THANKS!!!! Dan

Hi

I've been trying for DAYS to EXPORT files to my Yamaha CDRW 2100XS.
The A4000 will happily create a backup on a CD but it doesn't appear
in the EXPORT menu.
It is driving me NUTS!

The manual says format the floppy/hard disc/CD with MSDOS but it makes
no difference.
Actually I even tried with the built in floppy drive and couldn't even
export to that.

HELP!

R
Alan
