Viewing topic "Motif Classic File Utility?"

I’ve just acquired a Motif 6 and I can’t figure out how to do the file transfer to Mac which is described in the manual:

The File Utility software (contained on the included CD-ROM) lets you do that and more — allowing you to transfer files back and forth between a computer and the MOTIF via a standard USB cable connection.

I see no such File Utility application anywhere online, which I find unusual, even if it had been unsupported after a certain Mac OS, you will usually still see these files around. But nothing. Is it really impossible short of getting a SmartMedia card reader (also not easy!) and loading files manually on/off the computer?

I have a number of old keyboards and synths, some much older than the Motif, and I haven’t run into this before where there’s no way to make it work. I’m hoping that’s not the case here!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome to the forum.

The only relevant thing I could find was a PDF description of the CD-ROM contents and loading instructions. See attachment. The software is outdated unless run on a legacy computer system.

I suggest that you contact Yamaha Support and see if they can help.
