Question about Tascam Audio Players & Recorders
Usually an indication of bad sectors on the hard drive. This can be caused by bumping the unit when it is running, excessive vibration, a power failure while it is on, improper shutdown, or expoure to a strong magnetic field like having a subwoofer too close or an intermittent faulty power supply.
Your options are to return the unit (if it is still under warranty), or if not to open up the DP-01, remove the hard drive, connect it to a PC and perform a low level format (or take the drive to your nearest PC repair shop and have them reformat it).
Unfortunately you'll lose any data that wasn't backed up, but this should bring back your DP-01.

SOURCE: Tascam DP-02 error 50:0
this happened to my dr-1
what i did is took out the SD card, used a card reader to put all the songs from the music folder onto my laptop, then erased the songs from the card, reinserted it into the Dr-1 and no more error.
hope it helps. tascam doesn't come with a card reader, they use a usb but i've found that a card reader is faster and easier to manage. you can get one anywhere they sell electronics for about $15. cheers

I called support concerning the same problem and they advised me the only solutiion is to restore the DP 02 to its initial factory settings (Track Edit, cursor up, and power on simultaneously until the Dp asks Are you sure?) This will erase your hard drive. I've had this machine for less than two months and I'm really disappointed. Prior to this latest episode the DP would not let me load two songs, telling me File Error 1005 FF (Pwr off).
