There are several replies staing that this item is not compatible with Windows 10. However your onlne information specifically states Windows 10 in the list of OS. Is this a mistake or has the item been updated now?

Asked by: AngieH
It seems like it has now been updated for Windows 10 support.

I have floppy discs, music, recorded on a Yamaha sequencer. Will this read such discs?

Asked by: chi3kenScreech
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item as this will depend on the format the Yamaha sequencer use's to store that data and if the computer you are suing will understand such formatts.
