AkaiDisk lets your PC read and write samples on Akai floppy disks. It works with all S-Series samplers from the S900 to the S3200xl. It works with DOS and Windows 3.1, 95 but not NT. On recent Windows versions like ME and XP, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It depends on your computer and floppy drive, so if you have problems try to find an older PC to run AkaiDisk on. The Windows version requires vbrun300.dll (224k) in your \windows\system folder.
