Maybe this should go in a new thread, maybe not. But I do have the weirdest problem since this weekend. Using a 16x08 without a problem for almost two years now on a pretty recent ASUS laptop. WIN10. However, seemingly out of the blue my laptop starting freezing partially or completely every 30 seconds/1 minute and freezes for anytime between 10 seconds to two minutes. I initially thought my laptop was giving up on me. Until monday evening I found out my laptop was working perfectly fine again. (insert sigh of relief). Until today. I took me a while to realize that the freezing of my computer is caused by inserting the USB cable of the Tascam into the PC. This is new. Now, I've re-installed the drivers twice, the most recent ones, which were on there already anway. Changed USB cable. Switched of phantom power. Tried alternative USB ports. As soon as the Tascam is connected the problem reoccurs. When disconnected, the laptop works flawlessly. This behaviour seems so erratic, I'm not too sure what else I could do... Mind you, the Tascam does operate, there IS sound, it just seems to mess up my computers memory (I guess). Very strange... Any insights or ideas would be more then welcome... but no clue so far... I guess I will have to use a different interface in the meantime.
