While the floppy drive on my Yamaha has not failed, the 3.5-inch floppy
diskette has become obsolete and is no longer readily available. My
solution was to put a small laptop computer on top of the piano and
connect it through the MIDI Port. By doing this I can avail myself of
virtually unlimited down loads from the internet, piano roll scans etc.
and keep this material stored on the computer.
It really does make me smile to think my brand new Yamaha Disklavier
became obsolete in just seven years but an eighty-plus-years-old pump
player piano remains viable using paper music rolls still available
