  • roland vs-840 (zip100 --> zip250)

    I bought a used vs-840 recently (quite good price), I found that the zip 100 disk is not enough for recording 1 song.........
    so I asked my local roland dealer for vs-840-up-1 upgrade , which can let it use zip 250.... but they told me that this upgrade package is discontinued......
    I want to know can I upgrade it myself??
    can I replace the zip 100 drive by a zip 250 drive , and upgrade the software??
    any idea???

    I finally replaced the zip 100 drive with a 2gig harddisk .
    It works! but I read only 1 gig.
    but it is enough for me!!
