Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone
I read the instruction manual on how to hook up my tascam dp01 to my pc but it said that it was unable to recognize what was in the usb port. Then i could not figure out how to put my songs from my tascam onto my pc so i can burn a cd,i did what the manual said and it is not very clear apparently because all of my files are gone! I'm sure they have to still be on there it has something to do with the partition, im sure, but i don't even know what that is. I am willing to re-record, so if someone could tell me step by step how to do this i would love you, and if yall know how to find my song files that would be amazing too. PLEASE HELP!

The manual for this product isn't very well written at all. You should open the FAT partition on the DP-01 FIRST, BEFORE you connect the USB cable. If you do that, the PC will recognize the DP-01 without difficulty. If you follow the instructions in the manual, the PC will not recognize the DP-01!

Please check your usb connections to make sure they are on tight, I spent an hour or more trying to find out if this Tascam recorder was compatible with Vista. My worked when I pushed in the USB cord on my computer and yes the vista then finds a driver to install for your new hardware and presto after it installs it comes up as DP-01 open up the wave file and your player will open up and play the song. Any questions you can email me at

Get the song set so you can play it back. Hit shift-in to set the begining position. Advance to the end of the song and hit shift-out to set the end point. Hit master so it blinks, then hit play record to master it. Go to menu -> wave -> export song. Menu -> disk -> usb open. Now attach it to the PC.
Banjohead and other guests : My first problem was I didn't read enough. First you record song/master. Then you export it. Then you must open TASCAM hard drive so it can be recognized by the PC (page 41 Open and Close). Then it will be recognized immediately.

Hey i had the same problem u need u.s.b 2 or something like that because some computers have u.s.b. 1.5 or something wierd along those lines i fixed mine by plugging mine into the back of the computer in the usb port there.

It will still work without USB 2.0... just slower when transferring files.
Bangyo: Don't forget that you have to "export" your files first to the FAT drive. The Tascam will then send your track(s) as .WAV files and will store them in the WAV folder on the DP-01 directory. When recognized, the DP-01 simply shoes up as a removable disk, the same as a camera or MP3 player (for example).
Hope this helps. Check out "exporting" in your manual. It starts at the bottom of page 43.

i dont no how to get my songs to the computer
I have the same problem every time i put the tascam in to the comp it say`s not recognisin it in the usb port how would i get it to recognise it?
When I connect to the DP-01 the computer (Windows Vista) it is recognized immediately. I put a backing track in the WAVE file and confirmed it was there. HOWEVER, when I tried to import it from the active FAT partition there was nothing in the file. The DP-01 does not recognize it. I tried to make sure it was a WAV file, renamed it to 7 letters.WAV, reloaded it, etc. Still the DP-01 doesn't recognize it. Any ideas?
I'm trying to backup songs to my computer from a Tascam DP-01. I copied files to the FAT on the Tascam, then hooked up the USB cable. The computer did not recognize it.....apparently I don't have the proper USB device driver for Windows VISTA. Is there a driver for Vista? If so, where do I get it (is it free?) ??
My computer (windows vista) does not recognize the device
y sama gw jg gt mslhnya...plez deh!!!butuh jawaban bknnya di suruh comment
I was trying to partition my tracks in order to transfer them on to my PC, but accidently erased all my songs. Does anyone know of a way to retrieve these files. Please help me I don't want to re-record them, but if I have to I will, I hope there is a way.
I can't get windows to recognize my Dp-02cf. I copied the tracks to the FAT partition. Then plug in the USB cable, and open the USB connection. The unit says it is connected. Then I get a message from windows saying the "device has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it." It does this on two different windows pcs. Any ideas?
Yes I am having the same problem with my Tascam DP01. I managed to export 1 track from the mixing desk but when i went back to the tascam, all my files were gone?? I have had to re-record everything and now i have recorded more tracks and am a bit worried about trying to export again as I don't know what happened before and i'll be gutted if I wipe them off again. I hadn't pressed delete or anything!
Also can you please recommend a mixing program (ie: Cubase) that I can use. My computer is windows vista (which doesn't seem to be compatible with anything I might add) and cubase doesn't seem to be uploading. It mentions something about a soundcard but wont even open. Is this right or would I need a more upto date music program as the cubase i have may be a bit old!

My problem is more basic: I cannot get the thing to record and play back. the manual does not tell how to do this -or maybe it does, but I cannot get what it says to compoort with what I can understgand. Anyway, I am desperately seeking very basic instruction in how to use the thing, and I will pay $45 an hour cash for someone in the Washington DC area who aready knows how to use it , and can come to my house and teach me.
