After a few false starts trying to use MP3 functionality I finally got everything working by disconnecting the PD128+ console (Left in place as a backup since most of my floppies still work) and connecting a Yamaha MB-BT01 to the midi in/out. Some people said that they did not have power on the DIN but mine works just fine. For now I am using Sweet Midi on an old Ipad (IOS 9.3.5) there may be better options but I have not found any that work on older ipads. I wanted to repurpose an old Ipad and dedicate it to the cause. Using Mark Fontanas software I converted all my floppies to MIDI and so far they all work.
So....

- Does anyone else have a better idea for software for either old or new?
- Also, does anyone have the converted Midi files for PD4004 Selections from Phantom and Les Mis and also CMC1170 The little Mermaid and Beauty and the beast?

Both originals are bad. I have the Giebler backup files from the middle 90s but they still require a PC-AT with a 3.5" floppy and the ability to boot dos (USB floppies don't work and my oldest PC is Win XP)

These were my daughters favorites and both of the floppies are bad. I have the originals and I can send you a picture with the floppies and the cases.

Thanks
Ed

Ed, have you contacted PianoDisc? when it comes to upgrades, the what and how depends on the model and year. PD Tech support number is (916) 567-9999
