My VS-2480CD started randomly freezing on me so I tried re-formatting the hard drive. Mid-way through the formatting it froze up on me. I powered down and tried to re-boot wile holding the buttons above track 4 but it would freeze on re-boot. I just replaced the hard drive thinking that might be the problem. It boots up to the message that an unformatted drive is detected and it needs to jump to formatting and Yes/Enter blinks. When I press ENTER it freezes up again. I let it sit for a few hours and nothing. Not sure if there is anything else I can do. Any suggestions???

Is this an internal 3.5" hard drive?

I have no real solutions but this is what I have encountered before. I had similar experiences with my VS2480HD when I was experimenting with the conversion to SATA 2.5" laptop hard drive and SSD. Turn out 1) the IDE to SATA I was using was either incompatible, or 2) the SSD I was using was incompatible.

So there might be a possibility that the IDE board is faulty?
Did you make sure the new IDE drive you are trying to put in is on MASTER SELECT?

Quickest and cheapest thing to do is try another hard drive.

Search for the threads for the giant list of known hard drives to work.

I replaced the HD with a 120GB 3.5" IDE drive. Also made sure it was on master select. Still freezing on me.
