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.


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.

I put a disc in but the DVD player continues to stay Loading. It won't show any picture on the tv screen and when you try to select a DVD # it continues to say Loading and shows HD480.

Sounds like the optical drive on your Samsug has gone bad, or is dirty. Have you tried any DVD cleaners. Circuit City and Best Buy carry good ones for under 20bucks. If the cleaning doesn't work then I suggest having the unit serviced.

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. "VS something store."
