Tascam DP-01 FX/CD Digital Portastudio

I only have the demo and one other song on my portastudio and it will not let me record or use any record type functions. The message that comes up in the window when I push the record button says MEMORY POOR PRESS EXIT. I bought this unit in February of 2007. I'm getting zero help
from the people at tascam. Hope that maybe someone else has had this
problem and has a solution.

Here's a link to a forum where someone else encountered the same error. Seems it was due to running out of disc space in that instance.

Memory poor

This is an error in Tascam's code that usually means 'out of disk space'. Try using 'delete unused' to free up some space first within the song you're on and after that you might consider backing up some songs to your PC and then deleting them from the DP-01 to free up more disk space.

Hope this helps.

Can't Get My Music Off My Tascam. I have a DP-01 portastudio and it has a usb connection but it's not being recognized by my computer. At first it just wasn't compatible with Vista now I have windows xp...

How to export your recorded tracks to WAV:
- Activate the Menu
- Scroll down to WAVE
- Press the right cursor key
- Go to Export Track
- Select the tracks using the Insert and cursor up and/or down keys
- Press Yes/Enter
- When the DP-01 is done repeat pressing Exit until the menu is closed.

Tascam USB mode:
- Press Menu
- Go to Disk
- Scroll down to USB OPN/CLS
- Press Yes/Enter
- Press Enter again to execute
- Press Yes/Enter again for the "Are you sure?" message

Now you will be in USB mode and you will be able to access the DP-01's hard drive and download the exported WAVE file(s).

Remember: the DP-01 will stay in USB mode until you remove the deviceusing the Safely Remove Hardware option in Vista and then press Exit onthe Tascam!

Tascam dp01 fx cd.. OOPS!!! Please help.

Depending on the voltage that your laptop uses, if that voltage exceeds the Tascam required voltage you might have burned out the Tascam power board. Not good. I know you don't want to replace the entire unit. Try contacting Tascam directly they might give your an alternative in just replacing the power assembly.

What kind of driver does my tascam dp 01 cd take.

No CD comes with the DP-01. The Tascam relys on your computers USB drivers to work.

You should probably try the DP-01 on someones else's computer first to se if it works there.

This is usually some kind of incompatiblity between the usb cable or the use hub and the usb speed (1.1 or 2.0). I would try bypassing any usb hub you might have in use first. If that doesn't work you might want to try another usb cable.

Good luck.

DP-01FX/CD Problem

nslo, tell him to try replacing the power supply first, power supplys burn up ALL the time, as long as the plug fits and it has a rating of equal or greater amperage, same voltage, equal to or greater watts then it will work. Those variable voltage multi plug ones they sell at k-mart work but I've never had one that lasted long.

Tascam Portastudio DP-1FX/CD When I turn it on I get this message. Err: 12 Please PWR OFF

This is basically an error message which indicates that the Tascam timed out while waiting for the drive to spin up. Usually an issue with the drive motor not getting the correct amount of power.

Primary suspect is usually the power adapter.

Tascam DP-01 FX/CD

Check to find out the size of the active FAT partition. You may have a 'less than optimum' amount of memory left in that partition. Switch to another partition and see if you can record in that one.
