I\'ve done some searching on this board and the tascam message board and don\'t see much in the way of resolution on this topic though it raised often. Can someone tell me how they\'ve solved it - I am curious what the solution is because I still have this problem preventing me from loading about half of my samples.
It seems strange that I was able to create a performance file that had all of the samples but can only get it to load half way before the dreaded error code 5 message. Would adding more physical memory help? I am working with a 32 channel MIDI file with all 32 channgels having separate samples. Should I just give up on ever having this fixed and keep my music down to few instruments?
My set up:
* Pentium 4 - 2 gigahertz with Windows XP
* Audiophile 2496 with 5.10.00.0027 drivers
* DMA buffer size 384 (tried from min to max)
* Gigastudio 96 2.53
* 512 megs RAM (would 1 gig solve problem???)
* IO Page lock set to 440 megabytes
* Virtual Memory: 1 gigabyte
Oh yeah, I get terrible clipping, popping, static too. So frustrated...
Thank you for replying. I tried your suggestion of removing the virtual memory completely but I seem to experience the \"Error Code 5: Unable to allocate memory\" error message at the exact same spot when loading a large performance.
I spoke with someone from Tascam and he suggested I reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows XP. Is that how others have resolved this problem too?? Thanks
you don\'t need to reformat ur harddrive.....that could very well NOT solve the issue....and it would be a pain to do all your installing all over again...
if you are brought to a point where you still think you need to reinstall....i recommend using another HD and installing fresh with that.....and then test to see if tascam was right....this way if they were wrong you can just revert back to your old drive and continue troubleshooting the problem
