Look at Pgs. 147-149 (appendix) of your owners manual...this will show you how to check for and install DIMM..

D'oh! The manual, of course. Am I understanding correctly that the PHX kit TomTom was talking about can't be loaded in without 500 meg RAM?

None of the extra content kits can be loaded without the DIMM..if you don't have the DIMM you definitely need to install it...do a search on DIMM in the electronic manual attached below and you'll get an idea on some features that having the DIMM installed allows (sampling for one can't be done w/o it)

http://www.dtxperience.com/documents/Manuals/DTX900_Manuals/DTX900%20Owners%20Manual.pdf

To find the correct DIMM for your module do a search for it in the shop section of the site.....

I'm confused, this thread and the manual seem to say that 512mb is the max amount a DTX900 module can accommodate. But the shop has 1GB (512 x 2) for sale: http://shop.dtxperience.com/magento/inde...s-dtxtreme.html

Can my 900 module handle 1GB - is the manual out-of-date?

I think originally, the DTXtreme III only supported 512 megs of ram, then people started dumping a gig of ram into them and realized it worked. DTXtreme III and DTX-900 are the same hardware wise as far as I know. So maybe Yamaha decided to up the supported ram limit to 1 gig, at one time, maybe if you had more than 512 megs, they wouldn't give you support help if you had any questions? beats me! LOL
Take care

I spoke with Yamaha support. He said that while 1 gb will work, in some circumstances it can actually cause sluggishness and that 512 is really adequate. Most of the kits are around 80 megs or something like that.

Anyway, I ordered 512 - its in transit.
