AW2816 Hard Drive Replacement

Last Update: 05/26/2012

The AW2816 originally came with a 20gigabyte 4200RPM 2.5" IBM Travelstar IDE hard drive. Larger drives can be installed up to 64g max. These must be brand new, unformatted drives. High speed/high capacity SATA drives will not work. The Operating System will not have to be updated as none of it resides on the hard drive. Suppliers of aftermarket computer parts can provide IDE hard drives. This drive is not a user serviceable part so contact your local Yamaha service center for installation. Formatting of the new drive is done by holding the [HOME]  and [RECORDER 9-16] buttons while powering on. Press the [ENTER] button when the Force format screen appears.
