If the keyboard does not even recognize the thumb drive then it is broken.
If it works in a PSR3000 then it should work in a PSR-S900.
At the very least, if you are still in the cards to maybe get another shoddy keyboard, you should be able to practice with the one you have now while the replacement ships.
I hear ya. That's exactly what I'm going to do...take it to rehearsal tonight at church and then exchange it as soon as the replacement comes in. I'll give it one more try. If the 3rd one is bad, I'm giving up on this board and getting a refund...Stay tuned
When Sweetwater heard that my two boards were bad, they started testing the ones they had before they sent the third one out. Of the several they had in stock, they found one more dud.
The ones I have are working great. I've been gigging with one for over a month now without problem. Fingers crossed.
I think that Yamaha USA should test these extensively before they get shipped. Make sure that all the buttons do what they're supposed to. Make sure that the wheels work and the USB works. It might take 15 minutes per keyboard, but it will save the company a lot of embarrassment and aggravation in the long run.
