    Has anyone had problems with the disk drive in this unit? I can't seem to read HD disks formatted to DD on the drive. I'd rather not have to upgrade to the MDF3.

    Sorry man you're S.O.L.

    I have a MDF-2 as a backup and it only handles DD Floppy Disks. If will not use HD Floppy disks. It only works with Midi Format 0 and not Midi Format 1.

    I emailed Yamaha to see if you could upgrade the MDF-2 to do more and they replied that it couldn't. So stick with it or try to trade up to a MDF-3. The MDF-3 is a much better unit by the look of the specs.
