    I apologize. I should have specified that I meant in order to use the Tascam US-122 for studio software like Sonar, Cubase, Protools, etc, can I just remove the Audigy card? I am having much latency/skipping/choppy sound problems. I just removed the Soundmax drivers, but still no luck. I tried reinstalling the Tascam and SB drivers, but still no luck.

    HELP???

To fix skipping and crackling issues you need to install a PCI usb card just for the tascam (aprox £10) this will solve all your probs... you can leave the Audigy card in for general windows and gaming use... For some reason the tascam will not work with AMD on board usb ports.

These days they make pretty good sound cards on-board. If your playing lots of games, they may requie certain sound and may not run on your computer.

It all depends on what your using your computer for. If you want the best surround sound you will need a 7.1 Channel Sound card. But if you are happy with your sound card, then why change it! If it ain't broke, why fix it? Depending on your circumstances you may only use your computer, for work, internet and some games. Your inbuilt card would be great. But if you like to have the best of everything, then you would splash out and buy a new sound card with the works and play heaps of games and watch plenty of movies!

    Have you tried downloading the latest drivers for your sound card. Has any bios setting for on-board card being switched off/diabled , could interfer. Also try moving Audigy card in a different PCI slot. You can try taking out the audigy and try using on-board, but you will need the drivers.

What's your problem? get tascam us 122 working on windows 7


Hello you can try the vista driver from here:

http://tascam.com/product/us-122/downloads/

It will maybe not run in 64 bit.

Try to install the software in compatibility mode.

Here is a youtube video that shows how you do that:

    US-122 does not want to change bitrate. He reproduces all sounds as 48000 24bit


    Try to downgrade to SP 1 or SP 1a and make sure that there isnothing else connected to the USB port that the US 122 is using. As it needs the entire 500 ma from that USB port to work fine. You can find this settings in device manager, right click on each USB Hub until you find the one where the US 122 is connected. If there is an additinal item other than the US 122 connected to this hub, disconnected it or move the US 122 to a different USB port
