20 Most Recent Roland Mv-8000 Sampling/Record Production Studio System Questions & Answers

U need to reset your parameters.....Goto the  System button and then  press F5.  This will lead you to where you need to press initialize to reset the parameters.  Don't worry it wont delete any of your sounds etc.  I had the same problems.....u will probably have to do it every-time you turn it back on and off.  I think the cause of this is due to it having a previous expansion on it......

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.

I'm not really sure what to tell you about loading your sample music. It may be a decoding issue. Check to see if has the same issue with a production music CD. As far as the hum, there can be many issues causing this. You may have a ground lead bad in the cable you are using, from your Production System to, I assume the amp you are using for the output from the Roland. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

In this device the OS is actually an firmware and it's loaded in a special memory circuit on the mainboard - not on the hard disk.
In your case something happened during the update procedure and it got corrupted - you will have to try to do that again: download the latest firmware from the official site
Unzip the file you downloaded, extract and burn the new firmware file MV8800.PRG on a CD-R; insert the cd in the device (by force if necessary) and shut it down; now, while pressing [INSTRUMENT] and [DISK/USB] keys, turn the device on - the firmware update process should start (keep the keys pressed until the update screen appears).
If you can't do that then there is only way in which you can save your device - a hardware level update: on in which the memory chip is accessed directly . This can be done only by a few specialized dealer repair shops and the factory - you will have to contact your dealer and find out how to send it to them.

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

Did you try a new hard drive? It may be faulty. Can you pull the drive and see if the unit will start?

go through the menu looking for a "clock" option and set the clock to "internal"
