Hi My Tascam DR-1 portable digital recorder is

Hi My Tascam DR-1 portable digital recorder is working; I can record and listen to the results via headphones. My problem is that when I connect the DR-1 to my PC via the USB port nothing happens. The DR-1 screen displays 'connected USB' but my PC does not respond in any way. Do I need to download a 'driver'? If I need to download a driver or other software where can I source it? Kind regards Fergus Russell

SOURCE: Tascam dr-1 recording problem

There is a "PB Control" button. I had the same problem. You've inadvertently told it to change the speed or something on playback. Make sure that none of the indicators at the top of the screen are active (i.e., white letters on black background). Press the PB Control button to toggle it on/off. Also, any files transferred to a computer will not be affected.

SOURCE: Does anyone know HOW to get the case open on a

Hi.

Sorry to see that you are not satisfied. The disassembly procedure is explained in this forum. The forum explains how to install a replacement mic, and can help to fix your jack problem, as it shows all the steps to reach soldering joints. All you will need to do is replacing the connector.

Here the original link. Check also the pages after page one, page 4 reports pictures of the inside.

"To open the A-HD, remove the battery cover and battery. Under this you will see four small black screws (long). (no photo) Remove these screws and the bottom of the casing will become loose. This is the tricky part. On the top of the A-HD there is a silver grill covering the microphone and speaker. Slide this backwards (may require a little prying) and remove to expose a fifth screw (short) (see photo). Remove this and the two sides should be able to separate. A little gentle prying is required near the top, be careful and you shouldn't damage anything.

Remove the battery-side cover...
Remove the three short screws, and the one long screw. The one long screw is in the blue translucent circle around the lens housing. Now the other side of the casing should be able to separate from board. Gently move aside the blue translucent plastic and get access to the screen connector. Be careful! This is probably the most fragile part of this process.

The connector is in a port. Don't do what I did and just yank it out. Gently slide the white plastic guard towards the wires by each side and this should loosen the connection. Once it's loose it should easily come out. Hopefully your connector is in one piece, go ahead and set this part of the case aside.

Now you should have access to the microphone! It is a small silver cylinder with two solder points, surrounding by black rubber.

I had a similar problem. What i did was to replace the tascam provided cable with another one (similar) from Iriver t30. works wonders. found out that the original cable couldnt plugged in properly to tascam although it did recharge the unit.

Hope that helps.

How can I switch the mic input from the built-in mics to XLR input?


on the left side of the unit there is a small switch , , set this switch to MIc , or if using a condenser mic set to phantom-mic this gives the mic power , but I will caution you to watch you units power ind as with that setting you battery will drain down quicker than usuall , you will get best results with balanced mic's as the other types will introduce noise (thumping sound) into the recording also try to keep cord lengths down to less than 15 feet as this will introduce noise into recording as well

Tascam dr-07 when I turn on the display reads system err 50


Kennedy, Do hard reset by hold down the track edit and up arrow keys simultaneously while powering up. It will re-initialize the disk and ask you if you're sure you want to. Ans. yes using the (yes/enter) key, and the unit will re-boot itself and return to the welcome screen as loaded from the factory.

I downloaded the contents of my Tascam DR-05 to my computer because it was full, but, instead of doing it as always, by just downloading the soundfiles, I copied the file folder dr005 to my computer,


Eric have you tried to do a "Quick Format"? If I'm not mistaken when that is done, you re-format your card and the small memory in the DR05. I had trouble with mine at first but when I did the formatting after I put the bigger 2GB memory card in the DR05 worked great. I record on "All Files" too, that seems to work well also.
Hope that helps,
Patrick

How do I recovered deleted files from a Tascam DR-1MP3 player


Hi! As far as I can tell, there is no way to recover anything deleted off the recorder (found this out the hard way!) Best advice I can give is back it up on a hard drive asap before deletion. That way your material can be put back onto the device at a later date. It\'s a pain but it\'s saved me a few times!

Sorry I couldn\'t be more help!

Dr-40 stops recording after 5 seconds


Check if your DR-40 has auto-rec turned on. If so, it will only record once a certain input level is present, and will stop if the input goes below that level. The recorder will turn back in when that level is exceeded again.

My tascam dr 100 gives a 'writing failed' file error' message and stops recording


Try using a smaller memory card. This only happens to me when using a 4- or 8-gig card. 2-gig and below, No error.

Difficulty with recording


It sounds like you have connected the two correctly. I can only imagine that you need to check that the hifi source selector is switched to that line-in, it may be referred to as AUX. Check that the recording level control is not at zero on the hifi and if there is a volume control for line-out on the tascam. If you are able to listen to the recording on via the hifi then you are halfway there even if it doesn't get to the hifi recorder. If your hifi is a seperates system then you could try plugging the tascam in to the CD input on the amplifier.
