what the above guest said is exactly what you need to do. Make sure of course there is nothing on your FAT(previously exported songs/masters) because they will be erased. just go to menu->disk->fat reform, then press enter

Since the unit powers up and displays an error message it means that the power supply is working to some extent. The hard drive is probably malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. The DP-01 I have uses an 40 pin IDE 3.5" hard drive so finding a replacement should be easy unless it needs special formatting like TIVO drives.

As for the first solution - why do you think a PC hard drive needs -5v? The PC drive power connector has four pins - two grounds, 5v and 12v.

The hard drive needs to be reinitialized - this will lose anything recorded on it.

With the unit off, hold down Track Edit and Shut Down at the same time while turning on the unit. It will ask "Are you sure?" press enter if you are willing to lose everything on the recorder. Continue through the rest of the prompts.

Try first unplugging the system for ten or twenty minutes to reset the eeproms, see if you get the same problems when you plug it back.

Often when one runs into the end of a storage medium, it becomes impossible to even transfer data,,, It seems like they often need a little bit of room to handle the headers and stuff.

When doing a recording session, it is often a good plan to have a backup recorder, even a tape unit that you can recover the data form.

I would suggest aa call to the manfacturer to see if they have any suggestion for recovery of your audio.

I would try to save the file, even if it doesn't appear to have audio at this point.

The Tascam is frozen.

Turn the Tascam off and try resetting.

The hard reset procedure may depend on the model.

Check the link below, locate and follow the hard reset procedure for your model.


If that does not work, then the system or the hard drive may have been damaged.
In this last case contact Tascam at the number listed on the owners manual.

You MIGHT try turning on the effect right after hitting record. It is possible that the record cancels the effects... I don't know if this is possible, but if it is, try it.

I can kind of see a technical reason they might do this.
