Hey Gorky,

No worries, you don't have to tear apart your card. If you look just above the Roland logo on the top front of the card you should see a small indentation in the plastic trim. That's actually the battery compartment and if you slide your fingernail in and pull straight up it should pop out. Just replace it with a fresh CR2016 battery, positive-side up and slide it back in.

The card is apparently compatible with several units, but mine resides in the back of an old U-20.

Here's a pic if my explanation doesn't make sense. It's an M-128, but it's the same design as yours.

Hello gorky,
I'm not aware of any instructions per se.
There is a small plastic carrier which holds a cr2016 coin cell battery in the end opposite the connection point.
Carefully pull that straight out with a fingernail.

Tip: If you replace the battery while the card is inserted in the slot of a powered-up synth (for which it is formatted), it won't lose its stored information.
