    1GB Secure Digital Memory Card | SD for Akai MPC

    Use these SD (Secure Digital) cards to store data from your Akai MPC drum machine; sounds, programs, sequences and songs. Using our free MPC 2K App you can edit sounds on your computer, then arrange them as Akai programs and save them to this removable CF card. You can then load the sounds into your Akai MPC 2000XL using our MC-2000XL Card Readers. These SD cards work with any drum machine or computer that supports Secure Digital (SD) cards.

    Secure Digital, officially abbreviated as SD, is a proprietary non-volatile memory card format developed by the SD Card Association for use in portable devices.

    Compatibility: Akai MPC 2000, Akai MPC 2000XL… any drum machine or computer that supports Secure Digital (SD) cards.

    How To Partition and Format Compact Flash Cards to 1GB: Compact Flash (CF) or Secure Digital (SD) card for Akai MPC 2000XL:

    01. Open a command Window (Windows-> Start -> cmd). 02. Type “diskpart” A new window will open up with a “diskpart>” prompt. 03. Type “list disk”. 04. Select disk n (where n is the number of your CF card). 05. Type “list volume”. 06. Select volume n (where n is the number of CF card volume). 07. Type “clean all” (this completely re-formats the disk – it will take a while and appear to hang but be patient). 08. Type “create partition primary” (this gives the newly formatted CF card a partition so it can be resized). 09. Type “shrink querymax” This will tell you how much space is currently on available on your CF card. Subtract this from the file-size in MB you want for the final disk than add 1. For a 2GB disk, shrink querymax returns: “The maximum number of reclaimable bytes is: 1954MB” We want a final disk size of 1GB (977MB) so 1954 – 977 + 1 = 978. 10. Type “shrink desired” = 978 (This tells diskpart to try and shrink the disk by 978 MB). 11. Now that the disk is the right size, you can format the partition… Type “format fs=fat label=volumelabel” (“volumlabel” can be any name you want i.e. “mpcdisk”). 12. The media is now 1GB (977MB) and ready to use in the MPC 2000XL. Type “exit” to leave the command window.
