Hello I am wondering if you can't dump the information directly from one unit to the other without using librarian. I don't know if you have the owners manual. So I am sending the information in that area. If you have no luck with that it is possible to contact Roland direct. (800)(###) ###-####/strong>. They have people there that are more familiar with software and what will and will not work on there units.
I hope this has helped and if you have any additional problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Internal Memory (WRITE)
If you turn the power off or select another Patch, Rhythm Set, or

The Internal Write Protect setting is provided to help prevent
the accidental overwriting of data in the USER memory. When

Change the displayed ON to OFF and press [ENTER] to turn
Internal Write Protect off. Press [ENTER] once again, and the
data will be written into the USER memory.
Once you disable Internal Write Protect, it will remain disabled

Initializing a Sound (INIT)
This feature resets all of the parameters in the current Patch,
Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone to their standard or
factory default settings (INITIALIZE).
* When you play a Patch, Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone,
you're actually playing it from the XV-5050's Temporary memory —
the Patch, Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone is instantly
copied into the Temporary memory when you select it. During

Prevents the Write operation
from accidentally overwriting
USER memory locations.
When this is set ON, the data
cannot be written. Data can be
only written when Internal
Write Protect is off. When the
XV-5050's power is turned on,
this setting is automatically
turned on, — you will need to
turn it off before writing data
to the USER memory. It is also
possible to turn this setting off
during the Write procedure.
Prevents System Exclusive
messages received from an ex-
ternal MIDI device from re-
writing USER memory
settings. When this feature is
on, the data cannot be rewrit-
ten by System Exclusive mes-
sages. When it is off, data can
be rewritten, even if the Inter-
nal Write Protect setting is set
Just a little FYI. I am a roland technician and have been a roland service center for over 20 years. The problem is each of these units operate differently and use programs differently. Since we service about 80 different brands we are not working with all the variations from each company and each product. That is why when we get a request like yours we work with the owners manual and when that doesn't work we refer to the roland support line. They work with only the roland products. I'm sorry I could not be of any help so I would contact the roland factory tech support They will either tell you how to do it. Or it can't be done.
