Yamaha – TX16w

Hello all,

A short post because recently people asked where and how to get Typhoon OS for the Yamaha TX16w. Typhoon can be downloaded for free here: http://nuedge.net/typhoon2000/DownloadTyphoon2000.htm

To turn these files into a Yamaha – TX16w – readable 3.5″ floppy-disk (using a Windows computer) you’ll need WinImage: http://www.winimage.com/download.htm and a PC with diskdrive.

  • Take a Double Density disk. I’ve unsuccessfully tried High Density Disks (taped to fake a DD), so I’d recommend using an original DD disk.
  • Open file, browse for Typhoon 2000.imz
  • Click [Format+Write disk].. wait .. wait a little longer .. finished.

Some USB-diskdrives don’t seem to work properly.

A lot of floppy-disks have deteriorated over time and could be damaged without knowing. So be patient and give it another try if things didn’t work out at once!

For those who’ve replaced the floppy-drive with a USB emulator running HXC firmware:
