Question about Roland Vs-2000CD Digital Studio Workstation System

1 Answer

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

Roland VS-2000CD Digital Studio Workstation 2000 CD and try to set it up. The only (!) one thing I was able to achieve after a day of work is to switch the station on, connecting to a VGA monitor. The following message is constantly on the screen: "Setup Drive: Load Project: Please wait...." and it goes forever (at least for 12 hours), and the station looks unavailable. It looks like the pre-installed project is trying to be loaded automatically, and the session can't be completed for some reason. Therefore, the all other options are just blocked. I'm not even able to switch from BGA to LCD mode. I have been reading for the documentation very carefully, and have not found the situation described.
So far just one button "power on/off" is available, and the only message:
"Setup Drive: Load Project -> Now working... -> Please wait...."
is seen on the VGA screen for many-many (!) hours.
Please advice, how can I set the VS-2000CD properly?

    Same problem, except I've had mine for over two years and it just started. I've replaced the battery but still no luck. I have my whole album on it too. Can anyone help?!?

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.

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.

Would like to setup Roland speaker DS-90A to Roland SV-2400CD


this is no problem. You can use the DS-90 through the analog outputs or the digital. Either will work well.

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."
