My friend has purchased an Akai MPC 2000 midi sampler.
He tracked down an iomega zip 100 plus drive with a serial cable to save his sounds to.
(Needed serial cable as the 2000 model doesn’t take usb like most zips come with now.)
He purchased a zip disk, hooked up the zip drive to the sampler and inserted the disk, only to have it shoot right back out.
The Akai then tells him “scsi not ready”
Disk just would not stay in.
I’m thinking the Akai either needs the zip driver somehow loaded on it, or possibly the zip disk needs to be formatted.
