Just bought a new Tascam FW-1082 which comes with Gigastudio LE. Installed everything and Sonar crashed twice and took some important, unrelated data with it when it did (as in business phone numbers, names, etc....). I can get Giga to work by itself, but when installed, Sonar won't work.
Called Tascam. They said I shouldn't be installing Gigastudio on a computer that has other things on it like IE, Word, connected to the internetetc.--only on a music-only machine. "You should research software before you install it," said the very snotty "operational assistance" guy. I never saw any such direction in the literature, and still don't, and I think assuming it was safe to install on my machine was a rather reasonable one. Am I wrong here?
I can live without Gigastudio, I suppose, but it's the principle of the thing here. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know a way around this problem since apparently Tascam does not?
