Your HD risk to be corrupted, probably need to be removed and tested on a different device, I see if I can find the schematics

SOURCE: load imported songs on tascam dp02 cf

Make sure you have the song loaded first. In this case it sounds like you are importing into a new song, so make sure that you have a new song created and loaded prior to importing.

Then go to the menu by pressing the 'MENU' sutton and from there select 'WAVE' and then 'IMPORT TRACK'. You'll see the list of wav files on the fat partition of the CF media displayed. Select the wav file with your beat track on it (use the DATA DIAL or up/down arrow buttons to highlight the right wav file) and press the 'YES/ENTER' button. You'll be prompted for the track to import into. Select Track01 and press the 'Yes/Enter' button again and the WAV file will be read and inported into track 1.

Please note that the wav file should be a 44.1 kHz, 16-bit and a mono wav before trying to import it. If the beat track was created as a stereo wav you'll have to go into a wav editor like Audacity and resave the file as a mono wav file first. Also for a wav with a bit rate higher than 16-bit, the DP-02 is going to truncate the bits rather than dither and this might effect quality adversly so you might want to make sure that the file is properly saved as 16-bit prior to attempting an import to avoid this.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Play and Record button not working

I have the same problem with all three of my Tascam 2488 MKII's.
It's a software problem and starts to show up when the harddisk gets full.

Backup your song files ( something you have to do anyway ) and then reformat the entire hard disk.
Then restore the songs you were working on lately.

Before doing this rather huge task, you can copy your latest song to another partition and go on with this copy.
This is only a provisional solution.

Hope this helps !
Best regards

How do I set my Tascam DP-32 to record 24 bit 48kHz?


Dustin, just go to song in the menu , click the arrow to song load, create etc. cursor to song create and it will give you the option of 16 or 24 bits just turn the cursor wheel then just cursor down with the button and select 44.1 or 48 kHz . Then cursor up to song load and push the right arrow and it will load your song with the settings you have selected. Very good recorder once you learn your way around on it. Joe

How do I import a CD created on the Tascam DP-02 into the Tascam DP-32?


I have the Tascam DP-02 it uses a fat 32 partition, Fat 32 partitions are pretty much obsolete replaced with the New Technology Filing System or N T F S for short. Using the DP-32 systems software try plugging the DP 32 in to your computer once the software for you new unit loads locate and open the fat 32 system folder I'm not sure if the DP 32 uses the same fat 32 partition, But if it does the fat 32 folder should be there, Locate and open it you should then be able to move or delete your recorded material as desired

My tascam dp-03 track 4 rec button is unresponsive and doesnt light up but it was just working yesterday. the volume slider still works.


Some time with dust or Humidity there is a contact issue with the switch and the circuit so you need to get some contact spray spray it and should start working well.

Tascam DP-01FX/CD wont turn on


Refer to your manual (1st) It appears that "maybe" your unit may be
locked - until you get through the menus - and type/press EXIT.
If you don't have a red indicator light - lit. Turn off power switch (rear)
and unplug unit for 1 minute. Plug in - then turn on switch (rear)....if
still no red indicator light....you'll need either Tascam or Samsung
tech to service your unit. Good Luck.

If these error message continue to appear, please contact a TASCAM Service Center.

/F Error

Looks like your unit may require servicing at an authorized Tascam service center.
