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.
There are two ways. 1st way is to use the tape out and a 1/8 to 1/8 cable connected to a tape recorder or computer. And use the send thru tape function. while recording. then on the second one reverse the cable. And use the tape in function. The 2nd way is to copy beat for beat in the quantize mode by hand onto paper, the reprogram each sound(beat) back into it.
I think the most common cause of this with a pc is that windows media player scrambled the data on the hd.. you need to get a harddrive ide ata adapter , open the mv and connect the hard drive directluy to a computer then copy the files.. then reformat the harddrive in the mv then put the files back on .... i had the same problem with a mac but i dont know the cause since i dont have windowns media player.. im interested to know how this turned out.. i thinking of sending my drive to a drive saver company if it doens work out.. i neeeeeeddd my fillleessss.. aaahhhh
I've had the same problem. It just is like the tracks mix up with each other. It's pretty irritation when you come to the mixing process. You just can't mix track where the first one for example actually is some song. But you also got some guitar from track 2 on it and the guitar track has got track 3 and 4 on it and so on and so on.
How do you fix that problem
