Well, I can't comment about the total number of folders but I can about the total number of files that goes into the SMF folders on my WK8.
511. 511 songs (midi files) is the limit to the first SMF 1 folder.
How do I know....Because I hit that level this past weekend. So there I am saving my new midis and BAM, can't add anymore. What's up? And I can't find anything in the manual stating the limitation. So I have to press the UP button to take me to the top of the list (the root of the drive) where the . . (dot dots) are. Press Enter and then I can see the rest of the folders. Oh, now I get it...I have 5 SMF folders. So I open up SMF 2 and save away.
Here's the next snag I noticed, everytime I want to save a midi file now, it still goes back into SMF 1 and starts at the very bottom of the list (511). And I have to press the UP button to take me to the top so I can move to the next folder (takes about 30 seconds to get there).
Anybody know of a way to get the SAVE function to start at the root of the drive? It probably does for blocks but not for single midi files.(at least not on mine)
