My customer wanted to have a new display and a new sd-card reader installed into his Akai MPC 3000.
I bought the display in the internet. Not quite cheap but it worked well. It’s dark blue and crispy clear and has a great contrast.
I also bought the scsi2sd (Stratos Technology SD SusanoMonster for SCSI SD card reader) card reader via internet. Cable and adapter were included. I found out, that I couldn’t manage it to run under the existing OS 3.11.
But my customer also wanted to have vailaxi os installed and it works very well together. Initially I had an error…
but this was quickly solved by the right settings within the MPC SCSI page.

Set “Multi Sector Transfer” to “OFF”
