The MC-2000XL gives you the same features of a floppy-drive, hard-drive or CD-ROM but is much faster, compact and easy to use. This is the perfect solution to all of your MPC storage needs.
This is the MCD Reader that we use to save and archive all of our Akai MPC 2000XL samples and drum kits that we program and produce at Studio 914.

MPC2000XL OS 1.14 verses 1.20: When you format your media with OS version 1.20 you will be able to move files between your PC and your MPC (using Win XP), however this Akai OS version will only recognize 1048MB (1.05GB) of memory on your media card or drive. If you format your media with MPC OS 1.14 you’ll be able to partition the media and take full advantage of all the memory space on your media. For example a 2GB media card could be partitioned into four 500MB partitions. When partitioned and formatted by OS 1.14 the media will only be compatible with the MPC, NOT with the PC.
At the end of the day formatting with OS 1.14 is useful if you want take advantage of all the memory space on your media card or retrieve data from media that has been formatted using Akai disk partitions (OS 1.14). It’s up to the producer to decide what is more important to them; file compatibility with the PC or full access to your media memory space. Download the latest OS and MPC operation manual at the bottom of our STUDIO page; upgrading the OS is found on page 169.

The product was intended for the MPC2000XL while I'm trying to put it in the Roland SP-808EX, as I read many reviews that it would fit, though I'm having trouble installing it - mainly the new OS. How are we supposed to install a new OS if our old drive is defective? I'm figuring it out. None of this is BIG NOISE's concern. Overall, great product. The instructions are detailed as I also appreciate the extra screws. Thanks guys.
