What does not
Everything seems to work fine once the work around is applied (see comments)
What was not tested
Transfer of files other than MIDI files (although they should work fine)
Works almost perfectly with a slight annoyance after installation: the program does not run properly but instead pops up its 'About' dialog. To work around this, add a shortcut to MSFDM.exe, with the option -DMNSELECT, like this:
'/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/YAMAHA/MSD/MSFDM.exe' -DMNSELECT
Note: replace username with whatever your Linux username is

Not seeing USB connection
by Eldritch on Friday July 13th 2012, 6:37
I've managed to get MusicSoft Downloader to run on my Mac but I cannot get it to "see" my Yamaha keyboard. Running under Mac OS I can get the keyboard to talk to the mac and play notes in Garage Band which play on the keyboard and vice-versa so I know the USB cable and connection is working. Anyone got any ideas?
