The following article will guide you through backing up all of the data on the RC-300's internal memory. This is useful if you have important recordings/loops that you don't want to lose. You can also find our knowledge base article for recovering a backup here:
RC-300: Recovering Backup Data from a Computer
USB STORAGE MODE:
Note: The RC-300 needs to be in USB STORAGE mode in order to backup its data to a computer. Also, the RC-300 can't communicate with a computer if it's playing a loop or if there's a phrase that hasn't been saved. Be sure to stop the RC-300 if it's playing and save the phrase if necessary.
- Press the SYSTEM button.
- Repeatedly press the right cursor button until the “USB Mode” appears.
- Turn the MEMORY/VALUE dial to select the “STORAGE.”
- Press the EXIT button.
- Use a USB cable to connect the RC-300 to your computer’s USB connector (a connector that
supports USB 2.0).
- When the connection to the computer is completed, the message
“Idling...” appears. A window will appear on your computer showing the contents of the RC-300's internal memory.
NOTE: If this window does not appear:
Right-click on the Windows icon on the bottom-left of your desktop and then select "File Explorer." The RC-300 (or "Removable Disk") icon will be in "This PC" section on the left panel.
Double-click on the "RC-300" (or "Removable Disk") icon that is added to your computer's desktop.
- Drag the "ROLAND" folder onto your computer's desktop. A backup copy of the RC-300's memory card contents will be placed onto your Desktop.
NOTE: The "ROLAND" folder contains all data from the memory card.
- After the backup has completed, safely eject the RC-300 from the computer:
Use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Windows task tray to un-mount and then disconnect the USB cable from the RC-300.
Drag the Drive icon of the USB memory into the trash and then remove the USB cable from the RC-300.
