Hey guys, it's the same guy who's posted the original problem. I went to device manager and refreshed the usb drives. then did it again. what happened nex was interesting. first the same message came up saying can't install but after a while, it did install it. so wait and ignore the message.
next time i connected it, i had to connect to thesame exact USB port. make sure your other usb ports are not busy.
someone also suggested USB2 hob with external power supply to boost the power. might help
finally, i am seling my TASCAM! bought BOSS 1600CD recording studio which rocks

Re: Cannot install TASCAM US 144 driver
Go to device manager and verify that the ports are powered. Windows has as a default that if no USB is detected after a prescribed time, that they be powered down. (Without notification, I might add!) I would then change the parameters to where they are manually turned off and on to help the situation...accordianman

That's going to depend. What you really need are the drivers. If it's not detecting them automatically, try going here: http://tascam.com/product/us-122/downloads/ and downloading the drivers, although it does not seem they have any drivers available for any Windows versions beyond XP
A lot of the Audio drivers or Tascam and m-audio devices really only work for windows 32 bit reason i tried installing the same stuff for windows 64bit won't work in less u have vista 64bit But regular windows 32 bit works with every program out there. The mac if it did work it should pick up a signal if it worked properly but it sounds like the mac don't read it even with drivers .
This also could be a problem with your device if you had the same problem with it last time. replace it with a new one and try the install again on your computer and see if it works after that.
To see if it's your hardware, up your latency settings to "highest" via the tascam control panel. Also, be sure you are familiar with the various ways to up latency in your recording package: in cubase it's under device settings, vst bay. If this works, you know it's some setting somewhere. Try disabling your internet connections and setting pc performance to "background services" Also, read a pc optimization guide for daws - they are everywhere. Tascam will email one to you if you ask.
Lastly - try the asio4all driver. This fixed my pops, but when I understood all the various latency settings and set the tascam to highest latency, I could use the tascam driver. Highest latency on my p4 3.0 2gb ram pc means 12ms input and my output is 61ms.
If the asio4all driver works - it's a likely latency issue.
I have found that the tascam 144 freezes the system evan when using other software than Live. It looks up with Cubase and other stuff evan Windows media player running sound thru the tascam. The problem is erratic and acts like an IRQ conflict and I still believe Tascam has fallen real sort of the mark by abandoning the customers. They are without a dought responsible for this problem and should step up and FIX it NOW. We are many having problems it is no fluke and I for one am discusseded with the total lack of support for what they have released as a viable and workable unit. LIES just to sell their stuff. I feel that Tascam's support should be in on this forum and start to work out the diffinative answere.
Anyone want to buy a cheap Tascam US 144 that won't do what you want. I achive move by plugging into the MIC or Line in on my system sound card than I get from the great Tascam device I bought in good faith and can't use.
Hi, First try turning off the onboard audio device using the BIOS interface. Try pressing f4, f2 or delete key rapidly at the flash screen beginning when you first turn on the computer. Look around in the bios (usually in "integrated periperals" area) and disable any onboard audio options that you see. -In windows XP you can go to Control panel - Sound Devices and change the "map through" feature, select your default device, and run a hardware test simulation with a microphone for each device. Nice setup btw.
you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
