I am trying to record from from a Kerioke machine because it has the music and I sing the songs. The manual really isn't that easy to me anyway. Can anyone tell me step by step in normal words to record, playback so we can make cd. I can't find the product name and it won't let me put in TASCAM DP-02 all-in-one recording, thats my product

Re: Just bought a DP-02 w/40gb hard drive
You'll first need to find some aux audio out jacks on your karaoke machine. You might need an adapter, but the basic idea will be to connect the aux out from the karaoke machine to an input on your Tascam DP-02.
Then on the DP-02 you need to assign whatever input your plugged into to one of the 8 tracks. Let's say you're using the left input (input A) and want to put the karaoke music on track 1. You'll press the 'Assign A' button on the DP-02 and while holding it then press the 'Rec' button of track 1. The 'Rec' button will flash rapidly to show its been assigned. (for reference: assigning an input is better described on page 23 of the manual). Then you'll want to arm track 1 to record. Press the 'rec' button for track 1 and it will start to flash slowly to show it has been armed for recording. Now you are ready to start recording. On the DP-02 press the large round play and record buttons on the lower right together to start recording and start your karioke machine playing. When the song is done press stop on the DP-02.
Now to record your vocals you'll need your mic to be plugged in (lets' say it's in input B). You'll need to assign this input to a free track (track 2). Press the 'Assign B' button and while holding it press the 'Rec' button for track 2 (rec button will flash rapidly). Then you'll want to un-arm track 1 and arm track 2 for recording. To do this press the 'rec' button for track 1 so that the light goes off and then press the 'rec' button for track 2 so that it flashes slowly.
So now when you press play and record together to record, you'll hear track 1 playing (the karaoke track you recorded earlier) and you'll be recording vox on track 2. Of course you'll also be recording whatever you hear in the room onto track 2 along with your singing, so in order to get a clean recording there (prevent bleed) you'll want to plug some headphones into the DP-02 and listen to those as you record.
That's pretty much all there is to it. Some variations if you wish to record the karioke in stereo vs mono (I gave you the instructions for mono here), and you may need to turn on phantom power if you have a non-powered mic, but the idea is basically the same.

I would suggest you to use a headset (without mic) and play the karaoke for them so that they can listen the music through the headphone while they sing. Connect the mic on the mic plug on your computer and record the songs they are singing with rhythm of the karaoke using an audio editor like Audacity or Adobe Audition and similar softwares. Suppose if you play the karaoke on your speaker, then the music will be heard from the mic and it'll be mixed up with the songs he/she is singing. For best result, Record the sound/songs and save it as different file and mixdown the karaoke file with it later. Otherwise, you'll not be able to get good songs. Please let me know if you need further help.

The TASCAM DP-02 Owner's Manual has no reference to a mount error in it. There are many people online complaining about mount errors on their computers, mac and win, when hooking the tascam up via USB, but your post suggests this error was on the DP-02 itself, is that correct?
I get less than a dozen hits of people asking this question online, and absolutely no useful answers or responses.
Do you have the DP-02CF model? If so, it may be a faulty CompactFlash Type I card that it is trying to mount. If there is a disk in the drive, I'd remove that cd in case it is trying to mount a bad disk.
I can most likely help troubleshoot a troublesome USB-to-computer connection, but otherwise I'm going to have to refer you to TASCAM customer service, (although I must say the forums I've perused have little positive to say about them.) TASCAM support in the UK (a guess, but you did use the term 'mains' in your post) is provided by TEAC UK Limited at +44-8451-302511 or www.tascam.co.uk.
You may wish to first verify that you have indeed erased those songs (by choosing 'erase' in the 'song' menu - see page 18 in your manual) and not simply cleared out the fat partition. You cannot erase songs on the DP-01 from your computer, you can only do this in the DP-01 menus.
If you erase all the songs from a disk partitian the DP-01 is supposed to automatically create a new blank song. So the partition or the hard disk could have become corrupt because you say you aren't seeing any song there.
If you haven't already, you could try selecting another partition to be the active one (press 'menu', select the 'disk' menu, choose 'partition' and press the > arrow key. Move the arrow symbol to the partition you want to make active and press enter - see page 36 in the manual) to see if another partition works any better.
If the newly selected partition does work, but the original one didn't you might have to reformat the old partition. Re-select it as above, and follow the instructions to reformat a partition on page 37 in the manual).
If the newly selected partition doesn't work either, then your hard disk might be corrupted. At this point you could try a disk reformat (page 36 of the manual) during which you'll have to set the partition sizes. The disk format instrcution of page 36 will walk you through that too,
Hopefully it's just something simple and you won't have to get into formatting anything.
Hi Lil. After you have saved your music to a file in your computer, (my music) or any other place you choose, simply plug the device into your computer. It will show up in My Computer as something like Sandisk Drive F. The letter could be anything. Now find your music files, if your not sure where they are, play them in your song list and right click on the song, select, Open File Location. A new screen will open, select Files at the top of the page so that you can see your music on one side of the screen and your computer files on the other side. Now find your Sandisk there, simply left click on a song file, holding the button down on the mouse, drag the music file over the screen to the Sandisk, let go of the mouse button and the file will drop into your device. Your all done, the song will now be in your device, happy listening and singing your favorite songs!
I don't believe any software comes with the DP-01. After you record your tracks, you have to "export" them to your FAT drive. Once they are on your FAT drive, you will be able to see them using Windows Explorer. Your Tascam shows up as a removable disk. Simply open the drive and you will see the available folders. The WAV folder will contain your exported .WAV files and you can drag&drop from there.
If you don't have the manual, you can find it online. It's free!
