The hard drive needs to be replaced. You can contact their customer service as to how to do this. It is relatively pain free and inexpensive as well.

I have a roland vs 2480 workstation. i turned it on a while ago and it is not loading a project. can someone help?


Most of those units needed a new cdr drive, which means it's possible that the current material could be lost. Inner Sound is a Roland authorized facility, you can call them.

How to connect Roland MV-8800 fiber optic to Roland Vs 2480HD


I'm sorry. I have no first hand experience with these units, not to mention, I'm a hardware guy. I can repair it, but I have to look in the owner's manual, just like you, to use it. These are questions you should be able to find in your owner's manual. If not there, check with the Roland website.

My recording studio is stuck on the project load screen


Your VS-2000 is showing symptoms of fragmentation--resulting in the unit freezing or failing to completely load. The only possible solution is formatting the hard drive. Formatting erases all data on the drive.

Note: If you have any files that you need to keep, you may contact our Roland Customer Support department (323-890-3740) to arrange a "Data Recovery" service. Our service technicians can attempt to recover any data that is in your hard drive. Customer Support is available M-F 8:30am-5:00pm Pacific time.

CAUTION!!! Formatting the hard drive erases ALL recordings and data on the drive. This includes any installed plug-ins as well. Be sure to back up all of your project data (recordings) and plug-ins to CD/DVD(s) before formatting the drive.

Unlocking the System:
1. With the VS-2000 powered off, press and hold the TRACK/STATUS button for track 4 and the FX 2 button.

2. With both buttons pressed, turn on the VS-2000's power. Continue holding the two buttons until the display has loaded completely. This can take several minutes.

3. Once the system has loaded completely, release the buttons.

Formatting the Hard Drive:
Note: The format steps below pertain to using the VS-2400's on-board LCD screen. If you're using an external VGA (video monitor), press and hold HOME and press F6 to switch to the on-board LCD.

1. Press SHIFT AND F1/PROJECT.

2. Use the CURSOR buttons to Select "IDE:0".

3. Press PAGE until "FmtDrv" is displayed above F2.

4. Press F2.

5. CURSOR to "Physical Format".

6. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial until "ON" is selected.

7. CURSOR to "Surface Scan".

8. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial until "On" is selected.

9. Press F5 (OK).

10. Press ENTER/YES twice.

Roland VS 2480 v2 - working on album and received error message "load project please wait" since last night. have tried turning machine off and on and unplugging it. still same message.


Hi, have you tried to do a factory reset?

Hold SHIFT and press F4 (Utility). Press PAGE to get to page 3. Press F6 (PrmIni). Press F5. Press ENTER/YES.

If the factory reset does not fix the problem i think you have to format the disk because it has a fragmented disk .......

"Setup Drive: Load Project -> Now working... -> Please wait...."


I have 3 2480s and I use them professionally so I think I can help you. Looks as if you need to install the OS for the system. It seems as if it lost. You should have the OS on CD and if not contact RolandUS and get one. You would put in the OS into your CD burner and power up the unit. I would recommend Roland HD support be on the other end if you are brand new. They will walk you through. I was one of the first to buy the 2480 when it came out and the manual is just insane to learn.

Roland vs 2000cd studio workstation/harddisk recorder.


I have figured out a way to get around this problem without losing your data or sending it to Roland. I have three roland 2480s and have 4 hard drives. Buy another spare drive and when you load up to a different IDE drive shut it down, then put the old drive back into the unit and it will boot from the last known ide. Make sure it is not the same IDE # that was giving you the problem. You will get at your files but you better start to backup and defrag. I will not delete files on my roland unless I am willing to defrag. Buy an extra drive from a third party. You can see a company that sells this stuff on ebay and they are very good.
