trouble exporting WAV file from Tascam DP-01FX to laptop

Larry Larson

I have a Tascam DP-01FX digital Portastudio 8-track recorder. When I try to transfer a WAV file to my Mac laptop, the icon does not appear on the desktop. I've done this successfully about 100 times before, so I don't know what's going on. I'm getting no error messages. thanks. Larry

I just now tried doing it on a PC, and it worked fine, so it must be a problem in my Mac. Any ideas? thanks. Larry

I have had a similar problem before with Flash drives. Usually a restart worked to fix that problem.

It is possible that the port is not functioning properly. Have you tried it on any other Mac computers?

That's a good idea. I do have another older Mac laptop and today I'll try that one. Why didn't I think of that!? thanks. Larry

It works on my older mac, so now we know the problem is with my new laptop (Mac OSX 5.7). What should I be looking at to find the problem? Larry

I found out today that Mac OS X 5.7 is not compatible with my machine. I talked with Tascam and they confirmed it, and said it wasn't their problem and I needed to talk to Apple.
