Roland Juno106 Factory Presets

I download some files (from a Roland site)that are supposed to allow me to get the factory presets back by playing them into the Keyboard. As I understand it, they are audible files that need to be played into the keyboard via a 1/4" cable. Is this correct, and can anyone give me some helpful information on how I might be able to accomplish this?
P.S. I have the orig. manual still and have read it but would just like some tips etc..

hmm, I used to have two of those, loved them and wish I had them back. For some reason I remember restoring the original presets by holding a button down while turning it on. Anyone else remember that?

You load the files into a wave editor or a media player, conect the output of the soundcard to the the input jack from the Juno [ at the back of the Juno is tape-load]and play the file. Thats all.
Before you do this, play the file and listen through a phone if you hear the sound at the output to be sure it works.
Good luck.

P.S. I have three Juno 106s and I would never sell them. Absolutely great machines.

Here is the complete procedure:
-load file in wave editor or media player
-play the file and listen to the output of the sound card if you can hear the noise
[something similar to the noise of program loading in the old ZX Spectrum computers]

-conect the soundcard output to the Juno106 [TAPE LOAD jack]
-set the memory protect switch to OFF
-select the BANKGROUP where to load the sounds [A or B]
-press the load button on the juno
-play the audio file from the begining to end
-if loading is complete set memory protect to ON

If you have errors then modify the output level of the player and repeat the procedure.
