Hy to all! I have a Motif rack ES since 2005 but I’ve never succeeded in connecting it to a PC to download all my settings.

I have windows 7 - 64bit. Yamaha studio manager V.2.1.2 installed correctly. “USB” as MIDI IN/out set on motif rack. When connecting the usb cable to PC, the USB (Motif) seems to be recognized (how can I be sure of this?).

Then, when I try to upload on PC Motif data, after few seconds the message “bulk receive timeout error” appears.

What can I Do? 

Thanks in advance!
Giovanni

Welcome to the forum.

Which firmware version is installed in your Rack ES? To find out, press and hold [EXIT], [PAGE>], and [MUTE/SEL/ENTER] buttons while powering on the Rack ES.

Could you help?

The current OS/firmware version is 1.03, and it’s possible that the problems you’re having are due to the old firmware.

The new OS can be downloaded here…

or here…

After unzipping the OS download, be sure to read the “Readme” file and carefully follow the instructions. Unfortunately, you may have a “Catch-22” situation - you might not be able to back up data until after the OS/firmware is updated.

For anyone who doesn’t know what “Catch-22” refers to:
