MIDI Sysex and Datadisk

Hello. First time poster with a question:

I am hoping to find a program of some sort that will send/recieve MIDI Sysex to my PC. I have an old Alesis DataDisk, along with the MMT-8 sequencer and would like to get that information off the DataDisk and stored elsewhere before the hardware and disks quit working.
I have a bunch of stuff saved on those disks, including dumps from my drum machine and a few synths.

Thanks for looking!

You'll need software in your PC that can read the Datadisk floppy (if it is not DOS formatted already - was long time ago I had an Alesis Dradisk and orgpt the format). Then it is just to copy to your hard disk.

Your best bet would be to send it from the device as midi and into a program instead of trying to read the disks directly. Software wise, I recommend Bome's SendSX, Midiox, or Electron C6 (all free)
