Question about Tascam US-122 Sound Card

1 Answer

Vista doesn't see my US-122 as a sound card

I know, Vista doesn't support the US-122, but I got it to work, and any time I'm in Audition 2.0 all inputs and outputs work fine and dandy. However...the rest of the computer can't see the 122, it only lists my Sigmatel High Def Audio Codec card. However (again with the however) DOES list the US-122 and US-122 WDM interface in device manager, and shows them working properly. So it's there and working, it's just that Vista won't see it as a soundcard. The result...I have to constantly switch my headphones back and forth depending on if I'm in the computer or Audition environment. Any workaround ideas?

Hello you can try the vista driver from here:

I have window 7 with 128 bit processor and have the us-122 tascam, the software won't load on my new computer but worked great on my widowns 98

There is no driver for Win 7 but you can try the Vista 32 / 64 depending on your Win 7 bit.go to this LINK and find the Vista 32 / 64 driver.

I have Us-122 card and i can not install the drivers to my new laptop becouse there i have windows7. and every time i try a message says that i can not intsall the drivers in this windows session.

The Vista drivers work just fine for me on windows 7. To install them however, I had to run the installer in compatibility mode (the installer complains and quits if you don't).
For clarity, here are the exact steps I followed:

- Download the latest Vista drivers from;9,15,68,19.html;
- Extract the .exe file from the package;
- Right click on the extracted exe file, select properties;
- Go to the compatibility tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the dropdown box underneath select "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" (any Vista selection will probably work but this is the one that did it for me);
- Choose OK to save the settings
- Run the installer by double clicking on it and install as normal

You will have to unplug/shutdown the device before sleeping/shutting down windows or it may hang.

Hope this helps!

You need a 64 bit driver for your sound card so that you can install it in windows vista 64 bit operating platform. Visit the product website and obtain the 64 bit version of its driver for windows vista.

    New computer having Us-122 problems PLEASE HELP.

    Make sure that you have XP SP 1 or SP 1a OR SP 2 installed on your computer. Also make sure that you go to device manager and look in the usb hub properties to find out if the US 122 is by it self as it needs 500 ma to operate. Also make sure that the latency setting of the US 122 is set right. Look in control panel for the US 122 icon, you should be able to set it from there.

    Tascam us-122

    Basically this product sucks and will never really work well with any operating system, especially never never never with Vista. No matter what you do, more and more conflict will arise and the solutions will be hopeless. there are over 100 users on Fixya with the exact problem. It all sucks. Sorry!
