I thought it should be possible to duplicate my sample CD-ROMs in
Roland S-760 format using the Apple OSX disk utility. But when I try
to create a disk image file from any of my CD-ROMs the disk utility
says "read/write error" after reading the CD-ROM. It does work with a
CD-ROM in Akai S-1000 format though.
I remember I could duplicate those CD-ROMs back in the OS 9 days,
using Adaptec Toast. But my OS9 computer and its CD burner quit
working a long time ago.
Any other possibilities, preferrably using an Apple computer?

I hadn't heard these rumors but since I developed some Internal Kits
of other samplers I thought I'd look inside a S-760.
There is no direct way (unless you are a ace solderer and really know
what you are doing) to get the SCSI buss, since the output DB-25 is
soldered directly to the mainboard. You'd either have to desolder and
solder the whole jack, or you could make a custom ribbon cable to
route back into the S-760 (ugly, but possible).
The other issue is more severe. A internal ZipDrive is 6.5 inches
deep. Roland used a fairly short-form floppy drive that is 4.5 inches
deep. The power supply is right behind the floppy drive, so there is
no room for the 6.5" deep ZipDrive, unless you relocated the power
supply. That may be possible if you don't have the OP-1 video/digital
stuff; if you do, it is not possible even if you are squishing things
in there. You wind up short about .75 inch no matter how you squeeze it.
There better solution to me is to just get a 1 rack space shelf, or a
1-2 rack space rack drive case. Since the S-760 is rack anyway, the
only advantage of an Internal is the saving of at least 1 rack space.
I sell Internal ZipKits for the Ensoniq ASR-10, and that is a huge
advantage because one can take their ASR-10 around for gigs and truly
fulfill what the writer didn't want: cables, and power supplies everywhere.
For the simple reason of keeping everything compact in a one rack unit. Who wants jaz drives and cd-rom drives and cables and power supplies everywhere?

There are rumors of sucessful internal SCSI ZIP drives, etc being installed to replace the floppy drive on the S-760.
Is this true? Are there details anywhere of the installation?

Would anyone be so kind to tell me where can i get the 3 system disk images
for the S330. I have already read and browsed through the SGroup Archive (
http://www.generalconcepts.com/sgroup/archive/os/S330 ), but the only image
I find there is the one for Mac OS and I'm running Windows). Your help is
Thank you in advance,
