SOURCE: TASCAM FW-1804 FIREWIRE PROBLEM
I have a Tascam 1804, and i've had the same problem. Mostly with Latency issues. For me, replacing the firewire chord with a gold plated one worked. PLUS, remember that the firewire connection is technically considered a NETWORK connection which is modified by whatever controls your network activity (ie. Firewall, Anti-Virus). Whenever i start to use my Tascam, i make sure I disable my WiFi and other Internet/network related items so they dont cross interfere with activity in my firewire port. hope this helps.

you might have to reformat it, try going on to the application "disk utility" on your mac and check to see if your hard drive shows up there. if so all you have to do is mount it and then it should show up on your desktop.

I went to compaq's support site and got the XP drivers here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=217323
I installed the drivers first S4-100 Color USB Scanner Drivers for Windows XP
Then installed the application: Vistascan Support Software Module for the Compaq S4-100 Scanner
*be sure all your "Windows Updates" are up to date.
Once installed I had to go to the default directory C:\VistaScan to find the .exe file. The software booted right up! But, it said the device was not on. I simply pulled the USB out and put it back in and it worked perfectly.
I imagine you might have to start up vista scan and pull the USB cord in and out every time you reboot your machine, which is kinda a cheap work around. However, it is a way to "give it to the man"!! and I like that idea ;)

The problem is thus. You have a multitrack recording saved in a format that your portastudio recognizes and you want to use it on your imac. If you can copy the file to the imac as a file, a translator, if one is available, will make it usable by the mac. You won't be able to play it and record on the imac because maintaining the recording as multitrack would require one output from the portastudio and one input on the imac for each recorded track.
Bummer dude. The kluge method would be to play/record 2 tracks at a time (or however many outputs and inputs are available) and hope for some semblance of time alignment, after which you can fine tune it and then start your editing.

What OS are you using? are you using XCOPY or XCOPY32 to copy the contents of the disk over? Try to use an ISO Image Creator like MagicISO(Shareware), or the Nero Application Suite(Not Free) or WinImage(Freeware).
