Windows Vista Driver Support
Up until very recently, there has been no working drivers available for this device to be recognized and work in Windows Vista. This caused much difficulty for users for many months. Tascam had reported that they were working on drivers, but failed to deliver working drivers on several occasions.
Update Sept. 06, 2007: Version 1.10 of the drivers now supports Windows Vista. Click here to go to the resources page for download.
