Question about Tascam DR-1 MP3 Player
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

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.

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.
