Ketron xpc should work on Windows 98 but not in Windows 2000 and XP
You can try this driver instead http://www.yamaha.co.uk/xg/html/software/s_serial.htm
Yamaha serial port midi driver
does the same job and works fine for ketron too in all windows versions


And yes necdetdoni is right you need to make shure that your default midi out in your favorite software is selected to serial out driver
and also you have to go to midi section of your Sd1 and turn your midi input for GM to PCcable

Hi Guys,
I've been trying to connectmy SD1 plus ( vers4b) using a serial cable to either my laptop win98 or my xp desktop.
Both lock up as soon as I turn on the sd.
I've tried the ketron driver in win98 & cbx driver in xp.
I don't need it for midi as I have usb to midi cable for my xp laptop. Midi's working fine.
It's just the data transfer part of it.

Are there any instructions, maybe I'm just doing something stupid.

My serial cable works fine with my Yamaha digital piano & it used to work with my VA7.

best wishes
Rikki
