How to Load Stage Settings from the USB Drive

With over 500 sounds available from the Casio Music Forums site, it is important to know how to be able to load them even when you’re away from a computer and the PX-5S Data Editor. To start, you’ll need a USB drive. The drive will need a folder on it called “MUSICDAT“, in all capitals.  Files that you download from Casio Music Forums can be placed this folder.  Keep in mind there are some “sets” of sounds that are contained within a .zip file.  The file should be unzipped and the contents placed in the MUSICDAT Folder.  Once you’ve put all the sounds on the USB Drive, the you’re ready to load them into the PX-5S.
Before you go any further, it is important for you to find a Stage Setting that you’d like to replace with the new file. Find a Stage Setting that you don’t need or aren’t using and remember its location number. Stage Settings in Bank 9 are a good place to start.


Put your USB drive in the PX-5S, then directly to the left of the USB port, is a button labeled AUDIO RECORDER / MEDIA.  The arrow pointing down next to the word MEDIA indicates that if you HOLD the button down for a couple seconds, you can access the MEDIA Menu.


Now the display will give you the option to play a MIDI file, LOAD something or SAVE something. Use the cursor down key to select Load, then press ENTER.


Stage Setting is first selection Stage Setting, press Enter and then you’re ready to choose a file.


On the next screen you can choose from the variety of files you have on your USB drive. It is important that before you choose the file and press ENTER, that you choose the LOCATION where this file will go.  Cursor down so you have the numbers selected below the file name.  => is indicating the destination.  Choose a location from 0-0 to 9-9 to load the file.  If you accidentally replace the wrong file, don’t worry you can download the original Stage Settings from Casio Music Forums.
