sure that the connector on
the device is appropriate
and that it is connected in
the proper direction.

the operation of the instrument or corruption of the USB
device and the data.
• When connecting then disconnecting the USB device
(and vice versa), make sure to wait a few seconds
between the two operations.
• If you intend to connect two or three devices at the same time

can save data you've recorded to the connected device,
as well as read data from the connected USB flash
Number of USB flash drives that can be used

The number of USB flash drives that can be used
simultaneously with musical instruments even when a
USB hub is used is only one.)
Formatting a USB flash drive
You should format the USB flash drive (to the FAT file
system) by using a computer.
The format operation overwrites any previously existing
data. Make sure that the USB flash drive you are formatting
does not contain important data.
To protect your data (write-protect)

flash drive. If you are saving data to the USB flash
drive, make sure to disable write-protect.

When turning off the instrument, make sure that the
instrument is NOT accessing the USB flash drive by
playback/recording. Failure to do so may corrupt the
USB flash drive and the data.
