    thanks for the solution,

    at the first i thought it was the hardware that defective but when i checked all of its controller it works properly. I think there is a problem with the driver or other related software.

    Is there any other driver or software that i need to install like cubasis vst or ASIO since it written on its manual?
    Because right now I'm not using those software since i couldn't find it

    hi, yes i used asio. you can try others the one i had was a problem because i believe..driver signing had something to do with it. i now went a creative labs extigy and a live external sound device.this may be an option for you as well! awesome difference! hope this helps you, be well i also wanted to say usb audio devices can be a bear. but do check the hub drivers. one can work fine with a usb flash stick then not work wit a audio device.and do get the free software-audicity,asi,ect.

I have the tascam us 122 and i'm running it on my HP laptop with windows vista premium! I had the problem with the poppin' cracklin' noise! I called up tascam and they told me to purchase a powered usb hub! went and did that now my problems are solved!! by by crackles and pops! but still tascam need to update the drivers! more often and they need to realize that people do own older equipment that works well in which drivers do need to be updated to stay compatible with the times! hope this is of some help!

Incompatibility with vista


It should work with vista acording to this pdf from Tascam:
  • Vista Support: (download)
    and here are the drivers for that:
    - v. 3.40 Windows Vista and XP Driver (download)

    And here is the support site for that 122:;9,15,68,19.html

    TASCAM US-122 Will Not work with XP PRO "Can't find Us-122 Driver

    The drivers for XP Home should work with XP Pro, but there is a 64 bit version of XP Pro, and I believe that may be your problem. You can try downloading a new version of the driver at:;9,15,68,19.html

    to see if that fixes your problem. It's under Software and Firmware, Vista and XP driver 3.40. that device is considered a "legacy" device by the manufacture, so any more driver updates are unlikely.
