Good afternoon folks,

Kawai Japan has recently issued software update v2.02 for the CA95 and CA65 digital pianos.

This update fixes an issue with loading/saving User Memory files, some internal song and USB audio recorder issues, and a USB formatting issue that triggered a check dialogue under Windows 7. The update also improves damper/sostenuto repedalling behaviour, and prevents playback of MP3 audio files with unsupported bitrates.
