Tascam DV-RA 1000hd read error -64

Hello,

I use a Tascam DV-RA 1000HD in my studio as my two track for mixing. Today, after transferring some files from it to a computer, I got this odd error message that says "read error -64" and it won't go away. I can't do anything with the unit. I'm worried about messing with it, because I have dozens of mixes on the hard drive, and if it reformats, I'm screwed. What can I do?

Pete

SOURCE: tascam 788

The 788 can be used to play music from a SCSI attached CD-RW drive, but the record (and all other mixing functions) are disabled so you are not able to record the CD output onto a track using the SCSI attached drive.

Your options are:

1.) Rip tracks files from the CD onto you PC as wav files. You'll have rip (or later convert) those files to mono 16 or 24 bit wav files at 44.1kHz, use the old dos 8.3 naming convention for the filenames, and them burn them onto a CD-R or CD-RW as data files which can then be taken and imported into the 788.

2.) Play the CD through with an external CD player or stereo and route the output into an input on the 788. Assign the input to a track and record. Be careful to use a line level output, like an aux out (or try the CD player's outputs directly into the 788) if you are using a stereo. Avoid using a speaker output as the signal from a speaker output will be too strong and can damage the 788.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Making Midi Files for Importing to Tascam 2488

Hi,

You should always work in wav format if possible because there is a loss of quality with mp3 which is a compression format in which bits are lost in order to compress the file size.

There are a number of wav editors available which will allow you to load a stereo wav and then save it as a mono wav. The free one I use is called Audacity.

When working with FL or Reason I will sometimes import files to the Tascam, or I will take the outputs from my PCs sound card and line them into the tacams inputs and record them live. I only tend to do this with programs (like synths) where I am using an external midi keyboard and can play live what I want to record.

With basic drum pattern tracks I'll usually create them on the PC, save as wav, convert to mono, and then import to a track on the Tascam.

hope this helps.

bd.

I have a DP2 Tascam 8 track recorder. Can I come out of my 16 channel mixer into my recorder and record my whole band?


The Tascam DP-02 can only record two tracks at a time.

You will have to mix "on-the-fly" and record the master out, or record each instrument seperately, and just record the drums as a stereo mix.

I had the same problem too but I figured it out. First you have to make sure your wav file is converted to (MONO) as opposed to Stereo, (which is the default channel setting). The best thing to do is to download a converter program, in my case I downloaded AVS Converter program which all I did was upload the wav file switch it to Mono 1.0 and that was that!! The Cons: for this program it costs money to download for your own keeping. I also suggest Audacity program my computer wont let me download it but a co-worker of mine has it and he said it's free to download.

It keeps shutting off intermittently. I am


I work on pioneer, and I would not assume that. The tv is going into a shutdown condition. The tv has detected a fault and will shut off, being 9 years old some of these tv's are two part with console unit that the panel plugged into. If it is one of these it could be the console. The diagnostic on these are very complex, with a series of 4 different leds that need tracked. This needs to be diagnosed by a Pioneer pro. They are more complex than the newer models because the technology was very new when your set was made and the consolidation of many of the circuits had not been done yet. Therefore many more circuits that could fail leading to a more complex diagnosis.

Pioneer pro-1000HD picture just died with a big boom noise.


Is the warranty (manufacturer's or "doubled" by your credit-card company) still valid?

If not, check the vendor's web-site for a possible "recall" (if your model is known by the vendor to have this specific problem).

If not, then you have a problem that only a certified & qualified TV technician can repair -- probably for _much_ less than buying another 50" system.
