    Hi Guys could any of you help me with this one.

    I gave a disk of midi's to a friend to practise with but none worked. It seemed that they were not the correct format. How can I format them to work on any keyboard or change them from the format they are in to the one that will work. Midi's this person has work on my keyboard.

    Any help on this would be greatly accepted.

    Thanks

    Woodyk

    I think there's some midi converter programs you can download (most likely trial versions)

    I don't use any so my recommendation is to just search for them on google

    We'd need more info to help with this. What program did you use to create the midi files and what program is your friend using to try and read them? Are they type 0 or type 1 files?

    Or what KEYBOARD were they created on and what medium is he trying to play them on?.... were the files visible but not openable or was the whole disk inaccessible?

    there isn't a program out there that can't distinguish between type 0 and type 1 midi's. All do both.
