Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the Keyboard (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the unit, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have a 512mb and 1GB either works
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Richard, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

ok, I notice you say memory card, you mean a USB Flash drive correct?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No it take a flash memory card not usd
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Richard, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

They had two batches with this model, one also accepted the USB drive, look for a USB port on it, do you see one on your batch for this model?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No I don’t see it
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Richard, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

ok, the issue here is the card reader has failed, and I was hoping your batch had a USB reader to use instead.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the SPD to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
