VS-880EX: Backing up a song to CD?
The Roland CD burner allows you to backup up your entire song onto a CD which can be erased from the hard drive and recovered from that DATA CD back into the hard drive with all tracks and setting intact. This procedure creates a DATA CD that can only be read by Roland VS products.
You can select either one song to backup or ALL songs.
