Does any one know if Tascam us-122 external sound device works with 7 x64? If so is there anything special that needs to be done in order to get it to function properly?

Here is the product:

There are Vista drivers for the device, try those out and see what happens. Check out the resource tab under the device details. There is a vista download.

The Vista drivers work just fine for me on windows 7. To install them however, I had to run the installer in compatibility mode (the installer complains and quits if you don't).
For clarity, here are the exact steps I followed:

- Download the latest Vista drivers from http://www.tascam.com/products/us-122;9,15,68,19.html;
- Extract the .exe file from the package;
- Right click on the extracted exe file, select properties;
- Go to the compatibility tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the dropdown box underneath select "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" (any Vista selection will probably work but this is the one that did it for me);
- Choose OK to save the settings
- Run the installer by double clicking on it and install as normal

Hope this helps!

Quirks

Thank you very much for your time! Quick question. I had an issue while running my device in Vista. When ever I would restart or turn off my computer the device would cause it to get hung up while shutting down the OS. If I unplug the USB and restart, everything works fine. Is that a known issue? Is there a fix? Would it be better to use the XP drivers and run it in XP mode?

Only sort of works!

I have a Tascam US-122, and managed to get the drivers working on my 32bit desktop system by using the right-click compatibility method. However the machine hangs up on shutdown / restart unless I unplug the device.

On my new 64bit laptop, I can't get any of the drivers to install yet.

I ran it in compatibility mode for server 2008 and it worked great.

Just got myself one of these, I downloaded the 3.40F x64 VISTA drivers from their site, ran in compatibility mode, and the drivers work fine. I am just wondering 2 things:

Is there any software for this product that is used to make fine adjustments to it (the manual refers to some software called US-122 Control Panel I beleive, I can't access that anywhere on my computer)

and two, has anyone found a way to fix the shut-down problem with this unit connected or is it not possible yet (ie, must unplug the unit before shutting down/sleeping the computer)

Thanks

Shutdown Issue Still Unresolved

Anybody have a solution to the shutdown issue yet? I've gotten the drivers to take just fine using Vista (no SP) as the compatibility option for the installer on Windows 7 x64, but my box is still hanging at shutdown and it's driving me nuts.

Thanks for your help!

I was asking the same thing, from what I understand, after googling/reading, you have to shut it down/unplug it prior to windows shut down unfortunately. I am still waiting for a fix though.
