    After installing the driver for US-122 MKII, Windows XP won't boot. If I disconnect the usb cable, Windows starts normal. I want to use the US-122 MKII as my standard sound card, so it has to be connected all the time. Strange but true: installed on an older computer, also with Windows XP, everything works fine.

    Same problem here. Except I'm running windows 7 ultimate. Latest tascam drivers installed for the interface.
    On startup, with the tascam audio interface connected, I get as far as the windows logo. The process just grinds to a halt and nothing happens until I disconnect the interface. Once disconnected windows continues to load up.
    Only then can I reconnect the interface. Other than that I've encountered no real issues. It's just a little frustrating having to disconnect the interface every time I switch my PC on.

    Have you figured a solution by any chance?
