Question about Tascam US-122 USB Audio/MIDI Interface Sound Card

1 Answer

US-144 on Windows XP home giving problems

While not a hardware expert, with the help of web forums like these (THANK YOU SO MUCH), I can usually fix most problems. I am however, sound mixer challenged.

My nephew bought and installed this midi interface and got Cubase LE Installed that according to directions, then his PC freezes, and the monitor shuts off and blinks. A reboot causes the same problem now.

Here are the PC specs that I know:

E-Machine, AMD Athlon XP processor
512 MB RAM
Windows XP Home
40 GB HD
16MB AGP TNT video card
Onboard sound card

I've followed the Tascam directions, and have uninstalled and re-installed twice. This is very frustrating, but I'm determined to come up with an answer. Could be OEM OS, so I'm going to reload that this weekend.

Any help would be so appreciated, this poor guy wants to get his song ideas laid down, and is very anxious to do so.



I have windows xp and also have tried installing my US 144, everytime I do I run into a problem when i play music with Media 11. The music plays for a moment them it just goes to making a high pitched noise. I have a sound blaster se card. I also run into problems trying to get cubase le and giga studio 3.0 to work. I keep running into problems and need some help. Some thing isn't right with the setup.

One guess, is that the RAM in your system is too small. Try expanding to 1G by adding 512mb (if you have an available slot), or expand by adding a new module.

Usually not,usually hard drives are built with a hidden recovery partition that stays intact even if your operating system is not,and the cd just runs off this. unless you have a complete operating system but they never give you these out .

US-144 on Windows XP home giving problems

Try Winxp Pro, if it doesn't work then do upgrades one by one to avoid spending too much, increase the memory, the harddisk and the video card...
It needs a lot of space for recording, a lot of memory for processing before saving, and the video card to improve performance of the computer.
Goodluck !!!
