Hi,

two possibillities :

1st : You´ve chosen the wrong model ( PA4X INTERNATIONAL, PA4X MUSIKANT, PA4X ORIENTAL have different files to be installed )

2nd : You´ve chosen the wrong version. It´s important to see if you need the "PKG"-Version or the "UPD"-Version.

Ok, there´s a 3rd one : You´re using a MAC and tried to open the pkg-File in the MAC.

Please give us the detailed error-message shown in the PA4X display!

Hi Moteza420,

This is a great forum, and you will find lots of people here who are very helpful.

I would suggest you list every step you have followed, starting from how you checked that PKG was what was needed, what you downloaded (you must install at least 2.0.0 before attempting NEXT 3), how USB was formatted, and any error messages.

The more info, the better that someone can help.

Yes - please do this as we cannot understand at which point in your update is not working.

As said above you MUST install V2.0.0 BEFORE going to V3.0.1
So you can get to the latest level with just two updates.

If you follow the instruction PDF included in the download everything should work fine.

Please give us more information....

If you are using the slow connection method you need to download all 5/6 parts (depending on model) in order to update and put the in the same folder inside a usb stick unzipped !!You have most probably downloaded the first 500mb file and trying with that which will not work of course!!

A friend of mine had the same problem a while ago when he could not update to OS 2.0 or any other version above the fabric default one OS 1.2

We tried everything as explained on the Korg website in the end we had succes only by downloading all the requried pieces from the OS 2.0 and unrar them on the main directory of USB which should contain only 1 file in the end not 5or6 pieces.

1 - To be more clear you open on the computer the RAR archive Pa4X_OS2_PKG.zip with the WINRAR program or any other archiver.
2 - Inside open the folder Pa4X_OS_and_Resources_v200.pkg
3 - Inside the folder Pa4X_OS_and_Resources_v200.pkg open/extract all contents somewhere on the desktop
4 - Open the Folder and inside open the first file Pa4X_OS_and_Resources_v200.pkg.001 and extract/unrar it on the main directory of USB it should be only 1 file in the end around 2.53Gb Pa4X_OS_and_Resources_v200.pkg

Now try again the update procedure from the Keyboard it should go through. For some reasons some old PA keyboards the merging of large archives corrupt the update progress so the only solution is by extracting and making ready the main update file on computer.

I hope you will succedd as well.

Can you show us a photo (via your PC/Mac) of USB Drive root contents of OS v2 files you had tried to install ?

That's the exact error we had as I explained on my previous post. Now before sending you instrument to a Korg Repair try again the above instructions carefully step by step and I would suggest you change the USB or the computer that you UNRAR/EXTRACT the update archive file sometimes the update file gets corrupted when merging all the parts 001-002etc. Normally it should work if not then you need to send your instrument to an official Korg Repair.

You don't need to merge the files!
If all files are in the same folder as the main pkg it is working perfectly!
I haven't tried merging them but that should work too i guess!
