Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone
I read the instruction manual on how to hook up my tascam dp01 to my pc but it said that it was unable to recognize what was in the usb port. Then i could not figure out how to put my songs from my tascam onto my pc so i can burn a cd,i did what the manual said and it is not very clear apparently because all of my files are gone! I'm sure they have to still be on there it has something to do with the partition, im sure, but i don't even know what that is. I am willing to re-record, so if someone could tell me step by step how to do this i would love you, and if yall know how to find my song files that would be amazing too. PLEASE HELP!
The manual for this product isn't very well written at all. You should open the FAT partition on the DP-01 FIRST, BEFORE you connect the USB cable. If you do that, the PC will recognize the DP-01 without difficulty. If you follow the instructions in the manual, the PC will not recognize the DP-01!

I was wondering can you use the dp01 to record on the cpu daw or do you have to record onto the dp01 then transfer?

Please check your usb connections to make sure they are on tight, I spent an hour or more trying to find out if this Tascam recorder was compatible with Vista. My worked when I pushed in the USB cord on my computer and yes the vista then finds a driver to install for your new hardware and presto after it installs it comes up as DP-01 open up the wave file and your player will open up and play the song. Any questions you can email me at

Banjohead and other guests : My first problem was I didn't read enough. First you record song/master. Then you export it. Then you must open TASCAM hard drive so it can be recognized by the PC (page 41 Open and Close). Then it will be recognized immediately.

Hey i had the same problem u need u.s.b 2 or something like that because some computers have u.s.b. 1.5 or something wierd along those lines i fixed mine by plugging mine into the back of the computer in the usb port there.

It will still work without USB 2.0... just slower when transferring files.
Bangyo: Don't forget that you have to "export" your files first to the FAT drive. The Tascam will then send your track(s) as .WAV files and will store them in the WAV folder on the DP-01 directory. When recognized, the DP-01 simply shoes up as a removable disk, the same as a camera or MP3 player (for example).
Hope this helps. Check out "exporting" in your manual. It starts at the bottom of page 43.
