Hi all

I have just finished replacing the mechanical hdd for a bootable cf card adaptor and sandisk 64gb card.. copied all the contents of the old hdd ... The MV is now back up and running but i have noticed a couple of issues.. somehow a folder marked "samples" didnt get copied over, not a big problem, but cant figure out why. Mostly i have noticed a modest increase in speed, but it hasnt exactly transformed the old girl...

The biggest worry is that during the first studio session while i was groovin around the studio  ::), messing with some different swing template settings on different drum tracks, the MV froze.. the loop kept on playing, the mouse would move around the screen, the sliders faded tracks, but i could not stop play, save, play pads etc etc, most of it was unresponsive, and i ended up having to switch off at the back and reboot, losing the project... Has this happened to anyone else?, as in 4ish years of intermittent use I have never had it freeze before..

Hi, it happened to me 2- 3 times on MV8000 and the stock 40GB HD. Mouse froze and nothing responded though. Now my routine is to save frequently things while creating, but it's been a looong time since it happened.

You know you can count on our compassion, we must show solidarity for those moments.  :) Just went thru this the last 2 nights.

What hardware did you use for the conversion ?

I just plugged the 40gb hdd into a usb caddy and copied all contents to a folder on my desktop.. put the cf card and adaptor card in the mv to format (i heard it was standard FAT32, but thought that an MV format procedure would be most agreeable to the system..) then whipped the cf card out of the adaptor and into a usb card reader and transfered the files across

Update - I just read on roland clan about an old problem that conecthink had.. now i think my freeze up was due to the same... I had midi going into Novation BS2 and back out to the MV just like he did on his post (also BS2) both suffered lock ups.. I usually use a separate midi controller keyboard.......

Hi, so what about that CF card reader solution? Does it work at last?
I did the same on a Yamaha A5000 with no problema... Now waiting to get my MV8800 just thinking to do the same...

Also interested here. I did the SSD upgrade, but a CF should be easier to back up to PC.

I upgraded my HD to a CF card reader with a micro sd adapter. It works GREAT!!

Thanks for sharing my vid about this modification.
You can even hot-swap the CF card -
&t=56s

Sidenote is that I didn't replace the CD-drive. I only used the opening of the CD-drive. The drive is still inside the MV otherwise the MV will not start.

Anyway, a great way for fast file-swapping.

Grtzzz.
