This is all relative to sending a backup via USB over the internet to a another user with a VS2000CD.
When I hook up to my iMAC running macOS Monterey v 12.6.7 from my VS2000CD in USB storage mode I see 4 vertical icons (each named VS2000) representing each partition in my VS2000CD. Cool, but not so cool. So which one is partition "0", "1", "2", and "3"? Now dig this: I have found that the order changes depending on which partition your currently loaded project resides. There is more to this problem than one might suspect. It's late and I am not prepared to ramble on this just yet. I DO HAVE MY NOTES and will share all my self perceived genius after I've had some sleep.
Oh, there's more problems within each partitions icon. Double clicking exposes the files in each. Does it reflect the names you've given the projects? NOPE. Here resides deep shit for those of the total anal types. i.e. me. Titles like SONG0002.VS2 is what you'll find. More on that later. YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW. I have my ways to help. More tomorrow.

Huh. Strange. My 2000, when connected via USB, does display names I’ve assigned. For example, the most recent live concert recorded was named “Gordon”. That name was visible when the partition containing the project was opened.

It would be convenient if the VS partition names were displayed instead of four volumes tagged “VS-2000”.

Interesting. Are you using a MAC? It's possible that my iMAC has hit the wall on system upgrades. Just got a new up grade, but I think it's kind of like the "going out the door" kind of upgrade. I believe the NEWER iMACS have higher system numbers that are available. Then again maybe you're using a PC. This "NAME" thing is a problem that requires some real diligence on my part. I have a plan and think I can pull it off, but if you're using a more current MAC ... I may consider buying one. Consider is the key word. For your reference, my iMAC info says
Model Name: iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
Model Identifier: iMac17,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 3.2 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 8 GB
System Firmware Version: 512.0.0.0.0
OS Loader Version: 540.120.3~22
SMC Version (system): 2.33f12
Serial Number (system): C02SK2CKGG7L
Hardware UUID: 9E0F75D4-6CEA-5A80-BE1E-60B8F5BD9C8F
Provisioning UDID: 9E0F75D4-6CEA-5A80-BE1E-60B8F5BD9C8F

So I'm REAL interested in your set up. Will watch this thread for a response from you. I appreciate it. -Furry=

As a general rule, with most things related to the VS, older is better where compatibility is concerned.

uptildawn: Now THAT's funny in it's own right, but I know what you mean. I still have some Macs that are about "2 generations" old that I keep for that very purpose. Haven't tried hooking up via USB on them. I may try it, although I love my big 27" iMac (late 2015) screen. Hoping DK will get back to me again. Darn nice of you to post. -Furry-

The VS-2000 presents itself to the host as a standard USB storage device. The host will display the file names the VS has stored. Any USB equipped computer will be able to read the VS’s drive. The host OS is immaterial.

Yes, I do use a Mac. It’s a MacPro 1,1 quad core running 10.6.8(Snow Leopard). There is also an inherited Asus Win 10 box used expressly for the Roland——>REAPER conversion(2480 material).

The Mac is ancient, but still does what is needed.
