Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I suspect what you are trying won't work. Have you removed the floppy drive yet? you will find it has a very different interface indeed, an utterly incompatible interface... unless the USB drive you have bought to replace it is specially made for the purpose.
Please tell me more about what you are doing - esp. what maker and model # ***** USB drive is - so that I may advise you more specifically, perhaps.
(Note: yes, it is a good idea to format the USB drive in a computer, first... on occasion that helps a lot. In other occasions, you can make one that is bought pre-formatted and has never been used work... or format it on the musical instrument perhaps.)
The Nalbantov is a 'floppy drive emulator for Roland', so it should be right for the purpose.
What command or function exactly are you executing or trying to execute, just when the 'access denied' appears?
And, is the error message anything other than just 'access denied'? and where does that message appear?
Also, where are you trying to copy files from, from what machine, by what means, how is the Nalbantov drive hooked up when the access denied message appears?
Indeed. Why copy to sector when you could copy to files?
The 'access denied' may simply be because you are trying to use a utility to do sector copies to a USB drive. It may not work with them.
Let me know how it goes, when you copy to files on the USB drive instead, then use that.
I have written programs that manipulate sectors, copy to sectors, copy from sectors, scan sectors for viruses, etc.
