No CD comes with the DP-01. The Tascam relys on your computers USB drivers to work.
You should probably try the DP-01 on someones else's computer first to se if it works there.
This is usually some kind of incompatiblity between the usb cable or the use hub and the usb speed (1.1 or 2.0). I would try bypassing any usb hub you might have in use first. If that doesn't work you might want to try another usb cable.

SOURCE: Tascam DP-02
I had the same message on my DP02 error 12 please power down. I went to an electronics store and asked a computer technician and he said it probably isn't getting proper power to start up .We looked at the manual specifications for power and found it needed a power adaptor which has an output of 12 volts and 2.5 amps which is 2500ma. Once I put that adaptor on it everything powered up and it works great.Look for an adaptor that says output 12v 2500ma and it should work fine.

Here's a link to the DVD tutorial for the DP-02:
There is also a video on Tascam's support page for this product that you can download for free:
You can ask questions here or consider joining Tascam Forums (I think it costs $4) and talk to Tascam experts from all over.
The DP-02 operates almost exactly as the DP-01 did, so manuals and videos for one should pretty much guide you correctly when applied to the other, but the video in the first link is the correct on for the DP-02.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck.
