    Thank you so much! This solves my issue with motion files on the SEP-50BT. I figured I would have to emulate and OS but was hoping there was a different way around. Great tutorial!

    I didn’t know if people had a problem with such a SEP-10BT or SEP-50BT. worse I don’t have any of those, (yet or not at all). but thanks for this tutorial. We can use this later in case one of our comrades had an experiment with this least known treasure from Sony.

        Yip sure did, flippin busting to get this up and running lol I know this might be much to ask but could you or would you try A full install vid right the whole way though just to make sure, what I’m getting at too is, when’s the last time you’ve done it, could the software be dated, sonic won’t install & motion keeps bringing me to a Sony page for what I think is somekind of up date??? Me mucker had a bash on his own pc and is having the same problem.

    Hello Marco!
    Thanks for what you are doing!
    I’ve bought SEP-30BT as NY’17 present for my son. It works fine via BT, but I fail to download or play music from internal memory 🙁
    I manage to install XP_JAP but SSV does’t run and even when I connect rolly via USB computer starts to initialise it and looks like rolly hangs and only after reset button it becomes alive.
    Is your tutorial applicable for Sep-30?
    Can you find time to help us (team viewer)?

    Thank you!

    I finally made it, it’s working now but it dances only for a short time, like 20 secs, then it shows a red light and it stop dancing (but the music keep playing).

      Make sure BOTH Rolly Wheel’s can turn easy with NO hard click sounds between the turns.
      If it makes Click sound this can be an indicate to a dropped roll and broken Drive Ring (deep inside rolly)..

      if you talked about the SEP-10/50 you can make using Test pattern in Motion Editor for test whats going to Failure, like Rolly’s Arm / the Drive Gears.

      For Sep-30BT you can use the Orginal Software: https://mega.nz/#!oQUTFQ4I!AmsrAD90TEq_Q0lYXlrxwyrdnEOuXEYzoR9OW6iL-mU

      There you can also make Test Pattern Moves for each Part of the Rolly with let’s you easy find ou what’s going to failure.

      The Mp3 the Webmaster uploaded here have INTEGRATED Move files (Only dedectable by SEP-30 Orginal editor and editor for Newer version of windows).

      i can help via Teamviewer.
