Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card
I have 144MKII model that came with cubase le5. I'm using windows 7. Please help! A red midi in light goes on, (Should it be red??) but I can't see or hear any data in my computer programme when I try to record. I hear nothing in my headphones at all. When I click stop to end the recording I see that nothing is recorded and I assume nothing is being sent form the tascam to the computer!

im not familiar with cubase but if its anything like logic and reason, you should check the midi options maybe in preferences of the cubase programm and make sure that the appropriate soundcard is selected, so in this case the us-144.
and sometimes it could be one of those stupid midi glitches, and so you have to restart your computer.
maybe the best opt is to get a better soundcard.
im this close to throwing my tascam under a bulldozer..

You need a better quality connection. Make sure that all of the wires run a straight path without unneeded or unnatural twists or ties. You also need to use the best cables for your situation. This means that you should use the right length and gauge recommended for your devices. If none of this works, you can always get an electronic loop-isolator (sweetwater, radioshack) which is essentially an enexpensive feedback eliminator and does the same thing as a grounded outlet, elimintating all of the extra "electric noise" which is not needed. Make sure that your devices are all plugged into grounded outlets as well. A surge protector with grounded slots will not always work, especially if it is not inserted into a three-prong outlet. Another thing is to make sure that no extra current is running through your devices. Because, in addition to the "noise" you are also damaging your equipment more from such "noise." In fact, depending on how long you have used your equipment, you may have already done some damage.

This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.

You're probably not recording through your tascam interface. Go to control panel -> sound, and then select the us122 as your default sound device. Close cubase and open it again. Then go to devices -> device setup, and then under your asio drivers, select asio us122. That should solve it

Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.
