Anyone know which program is out there so that I can download MP3 files, and midi onto the SD so that I can use it in the keyboard. I use to use Realplayer Jukebox, but that doesn't seem to be around anymore.
Tks...Mike

Hi Mike,

The program you need, to transfer MP3 files to an SD Card is called 'SD Jukebox' and it was included in the 'Audio PC Writing Kit SD-CB7', together with a suitable SD Card Reader/Writer module. As far as I am aware, the kit is no longer available from Panasonic, however, the kit does occasionally appear on eBay. Another possible source is Walt Tenay in USA : http://www.wtenaykeyboardstudios.com/main.html

Midi files can be saved to an SD Card but NOT just by copying from a folder on your PC to a card. You don't need any special software to do this and if you care to email me, I'll send you the procedure. My email address is in my profile.

I tried those pages nothing. I have the pnansonic disk that came with the KN7000. Not worried about midi files. Just downloading MP3 backing tracks onto the SD card. Any program I can purchase?
Tks.. again.

As I said in my earlier post, the only program which will allow you to transfer MP3 files to an SD Card, for playback on a KN7000, is the Panasonic SD Jukebox and you will also need the SD Reader/Writer module which comes with the SZ-CB7 kit. Alternative Card Reader/Writer modules do not seem to work with the Panasonic SD Jukebox software.

You can leave a request on Walt's website and if he obtains a kit in future, he will email you.
