When i first plugged it in, it not only powered up but let me go through lots of different banks for synth sounds, drum hits and audio sample librarys. these all worked and played the sounds and let me edit and save minor changes. When i tryed to sample though, it would not sample for more then a second or so. I didn't have any disks for it so I left it alone since i have computers and other synths/samplers to mess with. The other day i decided to give it another go since a friend gave me some of the old disks it takes. This time when i turned it on, it just said "searching for disk" or something like that and did not load anything.. After reading up on it i found that it is not supposed to work with out a disk? I have since purchased a OS disk off of ebay and im making some progress but it seems to be alot different then when i first turned it on a few years back..
So im confused as to why it would load all the banks of samples and synth sounds and such when its not supposed to? Or do i miss understand something? It also seems the disks my friend gave me wont format.. They are the older double density Memorex 2s2d disks but maybe i need something else? Maybe someone could help me straighten all this out..
