    very easy the cheapest way if u have the means===
    1. get a scsi zip drive and hook it into scsi port on mpc.
    this way u can load the zip with sounds on the comp and then transfer to mpc zip.
    2nd.get a scsi card and cable at local store and hook the scsi up to pc and then to mpc.U need to use a program like soundforge or wavelab on pc / spark / peak on mac .... then u simply download to mpc ..
    number 1 is better realy === u can store sample on zip and transfer === cost about 99$ for scsi zip 100 megs .
    thats all....

    you can also "sample" that wav while you play it on the PC I know it sounds lame but it will work, and if you use a good quality cable you won't loose too much quality

    but the SCSI ZIP DRIVE solution is a good idea
    PLEASE HELP FP BY CLICKING ON

    software will do same thing
    and alot easyer thats why i dont use an mpc ,i got a 3000 and a 2000 xl ,never use them u can do the same thing in less than half the time on an mpc
    if anyone can disagree with that let me know ....
    and dont give me the shi@ that an mpc make sounds better (it deos not) it is a tool and that is all ...
    but what ever works best for u try both if u can

    Talking pc to mpc

    alright here's the deal-
    transfer your samples to wave then burn them to a cd. here's the catch, you gotta get a scsi drive for your mpc as someone said earlier. I went to pricewatch.com and got an external scsi cd drive. Or you you could so the internal zip thing- but you gotta get a zip for your computer. I have the mpc 2000xl - you can imagine how frustrated I was when I got it and found out I had to get extra gear just to get sounds into it and out. Anyway, use a cd, it holds more but get an internal scsi zip for your saving needs. Floppies have a hard time holding the samples I put together unless they are kicks snares etc. otherwise ???
    Track Dadda yeah it can hold a zip- in the same place where the floppy is
