TapcoLINK help:
I found this on www.recording.org
http://recording.org/home-recording-forum/39765-tapco-link-usb-and-tracktion-2-a.html


Ok first thing. Unplug any USB devices not pertinent to recording when you want to record. Second, left click Start->right click Computer and select properties. Left click on Device Manager (left column). Look for your Tapco mixer and see if it has any red X or error message. It might be that it isn't completely installed correctly. Also in the Device Manager at the top, click View and select Show Hidden Devices. Look for something under "non plug and play devices" (I think) called Mackie Subunit or some garbage like that. I'm traveling so I don't have any Mackie gear to plug in to verify. Anyway, this is the bit that actually interfaces with the Windows sound in Vista and Win7. You may have to manually install the driver as Windows says it doesn't need one. Right click and select update driver.
-Browse my computer for driver software
-Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
-Click "Have Disk" and browse to whatever folder you dowloaded the Tapco drivers to.

You will lose all your data. Here are the instructions:
Turn off your unit, push down on the following buttons; Quick Routing, Shift, Sendand Shut Down button. Keep all these buttons down at the same time and keep them down while you turn on the power button to boot up the unit. You will see the changes being made as the unit boots up. Good Luck!

These units have what is known as a Rotary Encoder. They're just like the volume controls on audio equipment, now a days. You can turn it all the way, and it never stops. The pulses from these encoders, are routed to the microprocessor(computer inside your unit). The encoder may be bad, or the microprocessor itself. If you'd like to enquire about repairing your unit, please contact me directly from my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

I don't see any mention of an "Auto repair program" in the manual.

Press and hold down the "track edit" and the "shut down" buttons while turning the power on until it says "-init screen- please wait". It will ask you if you want to initialize hdd. If so press yes/enter. This Will wipe your hard drive clean. If no just press no/exit. This works on the dp-01fx. It should work on the dp-01 as well.

Hello Rick, to be able to activate the recording button, you must have placed a cassette, that has the lock to record, this is in the upper part of the cassette and has one for each side, in your case it will have to have the corresponding to the on the side that you use to record
Looking at the cassette in front, with the tape down, the lock is up on the left, if you do not have it, you can replace it with a Scotch tape covering the hole
I hope my comment will serve you

Hola Rick, para poder accionar el boton de grabacion, debes tener colocado un cassette, que tenga la traba para grabar, esta se encuentra en la parte superior del cassette y tiene una para cada lado, en tu caso tendra que tener la correspondiente a la del lado que usas para grabar
mirando el cassette de frente, con la cinta para abajo la traba esta arriba a la izquierda, si no la tuviera, la puedes reemplazar con una cinta Scotch cubriendo el agujero
Espero que te sirva mi comentario

Hello Ken, I was looking in the manuals of Tascam 302 and it does not refer to "ERR 1", it appears "ERR 2" and "ERR 3"
From what you describe, you may have a power supply problem in the low signal area, or have some of the mechanisms out of point, so you can see that the axes are turning
If you have technical features, try disconnecting the multipin cable that feeds the mechanics and check if the noise continues, if it does not appear, go reconnecting each mechanism separately and looking for which generates the problem, could be both, at that point I suggest, consult to a specialized technical service
I hope my comment has served you
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Ken, estuve buscando en los manuales de Tascam 302 y no hace referencia a "ERR 1", aparece "ERR 2" y "ERR 3"
Por lo que describes puede ser que tengas un problema de fuente de alimentaci?n de la zona de baja se?al, o tengas alguno de los mecanismos fuera de punto, por eso observas que est?n girando los ejes capstan
Si tienes conocimientos t?cnicos, prueba desconectando el cable multipin que alimenta las mec?nicas y verifica si continua el ruido, si no aparece , ve re conectando cada mecanismo por separado y buscando cual genera el problema, podr?an ser los dos, en ese punto te sugiero, consulta a un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero te haya servido mi comentario
