Get rid of that slow floppy or zip drive and up your storage space with this SD card reader kit for the Akai MPC2000XL. One 1GB SD card is the equivalent to 711 floppy disks or 10 Zip100 disks.
These compact flash reader / writer kits come in black and replace the original Floppy or Zip drive in your MPC2000XL. They include a 1GB card and all cables to install. These drives take up to a 1GB compact flash card (can take more but will format down to 1GB). The kit includes all you need to install into your MPC. These drives are hot-swappable, this means you will NOT have to turn off the MPC if you want to change to a new card. One 1GB compact flash card is the equivalent to 711 floppy disks or 10 Zip100 disks.
You must install new MPC 2000 XL OS before installing the drive you can add to your order above (on zip or floppy).
Included Parts: (ASSYs)
- SD Card Drive in Black (fits exactly in the MPC)

Alternate Part #s:
SOME SD FLASH CARDS WILL NOT WORK IN THIS DRIVE. Usually the older compact flash cards work the best. We have found that ones that operate at 15MB/S speed and below seem to always work. Keep in mind cards over 1.0GB will work sometimes but no matter what the MPC will have to format the card down to 1.0GB. Cards will need to be formatted in the MPC to use them.
THIS DRIVE IS HOT-SWAPPABLE.
THIS DRIVE NEEDS TO HAVE OS V1.20 INSTALLED BEFORE THE DRIVE IS INSTALLED. You can order the OS on floppy disk above or you can download it and put on a floppy yourself before installing the drive.
