Question about Tascam Dp-02cf Digital 8-track Recorder
Being older I recall these recorders. The problem with them was 8 track tapes never played very well due to the cinnamon roll design, the recorder and players tuck the tape back into the center of the roll when playing them. This poor design causes them to wear out fast and often snag or damage the mechanisms. Not to mention you can often hear adjacent tracks spilling over into the current track you are listening to...
In your case I think the recording head which records track two is out of allignment or contaminated with oxide from the tapes which tends to cake on them. You might try giving it a blast of compressed air if you can find the recording heads, or if unafraid cleaning the head witha q-tip in denatured alcohol or a commercial head cleaning solution for old magnetic tape machines, the solution is basically alcohol and something like freon to make it evaporate if I recall correctly.
If it still doesn't work it is probably because these things are very old regardles of how well they were made in addition to the fact the technology is 40+ years old.

SOURCE: mini disc recorder question
Just use the first two tracks, one for left and one for right and use the PAN pots to adjust the stereo positioning. Just run the 'tape out' or 'line out' or 'aux out' of the mixer to the REC "IN" on the MiniDisc recorder; hit "record" then the "play" button to start it. Make sure your input selector switch is on ANALOG and not DIGITAL or OPTICAL. Let me know how it works out for you. Okay? Thanks

Hi, I think the proper way to do this should be to copy and paste a section of the track using in and out points to mark the section you would like to copy on to another track but I have been unable to figure this out! very frustrating! However for now I have managed to do it this way (The long way round but it works) say a track that I have 10 or so songs on, I copy it say 10 times (this takes a long time!) When you copy them they show up as the same title. I then rename the original so that i don't mess about with the original! Then I set in and out points previous to the song I want to get to another track and press cut. I then set in and out points after that song and press cut this leaves you with just that song and it is at the begining of the track because cutting closes up the gap. I save and rename this appropriatly. I then do the same for alll the other songs I want with the other copies.!!!!!! Hope this helps, if you work out how to cut and paste please let me know!

You must be missing a step somewhere. I suggest you CAREFULLY read the manual again and follow it step by step. Recording is simple on this unit once you do it a few times and get the procedure correct. Good luck
