I found a bunch of Vs-840 songs that I backup-ed to a CD-R. My VS-840 stopped working over 10 years. Is there anyway for me to access these songs on the PC? Most of the files and folders are SONG0001.VS4, etc. all in .vs4 files. I know it's a probably a long-shot, but just curious.

I can’t guarantee that this will work with today's computers, but I used to use this BR8 wave converter app to get individual tracks from the vs840 with the Roland format to wave files on the computer. This was after I converted from the Zip drive to an SD card….so I could take the SD card from the 840 to the computer and run the BR8 app and easily get the wave files into the pc.

Thank you. It runs fine but unfortunately it won't recognize a disk unless it's been formatted for the BR-8 or a VS machine. I've been trying to find a way to do it with a virtual drive or USB flash drive, but no luck so far. I'm gonna keep on going.. When there's a will, there's a way!
