Not available means, not available, ie not supported under windows 8.
PS: You triple posted this. Refrain from doing that in the future, please !

Hey, it IS possible! There is no Windows 8 driver because it is not needed. Windows 8 has a special feature for program compatibility. I just installed Tascam US-122 on my Windows 8 HP Pavilion g6 laptop.

1) Go to http://tascam.com/product/us-122/downloads/ and download Windows Drivers v.3.40 Windows Vista and XP driver. Unzip it.

2) In Control Panel/Programs/Programs and Features choose Run Programs Made for Previous Versions of Windows. It will open Program Compatibility Troubleshooter. Click Next.

3) Your US-122 driver will not be listed there, so choose Not Listed and browse for it your downloads folder. You need the .exe file - in my case it did not show .exe extension, but it will show up once you choose it (remember, upzip first!).

4) Program Compatibility Troubleshooter will ask you to select Troubleshooting Option. Click on Troubleshoot Program.

5) When asked "What problems do you experience?" click on first - "The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now."

6) When asked for previous version of windows, choose "I don't know". Another window opens, asking your permission to install Tascam.

7) You will then have to install Tascam. Click Yes throughout.

8) Finally, it is time to plug it in! After you have plugged USB into laptop, go to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound/Manage audio devices. Choose US-122 as your default device for playback and recording, click Apply, then - OK. Done! :sol:

Hello mate,

I don't know about us-200 exactly, as I have the us-122. I would imagine it would work the same way. Have tried following the steps I've given in the first post?

The idea behind not having Windows 8 drivers is simple - THEY ARE NOT NEEDED. Windows 8 allows your computer to work with older software and/hardware as if it were a Windows 7 or older. I am not sure how universal this rule is, but generally that is the case. Try doing the same I did on mine, and let us know.

Hail from UK!

I inform you that follow each of the steps for the installation of the Tascam US-122 but it did not help as I still see Can not install on this version of windows .. I went to troubleshooter and follow each of the steps, seeing that not work look more about how to operate the plant and found that the properties could find compatibility settings and appeared windows vista, windows 7, windows xp , service pack 1, 2 and 3 .. I tested each and every one of them but it did not work, I have a Hp Pavilion G4 Notebook PC with windows 8 .. I'm a musician and I need to work this program Tascam US-122 to work on home projects I have in mind in addition to some more projects, I hope your answer soon .. Greetings from Mexico, SumGLAM

This instruction worked for me!!! It was a little confusing but after I got used to the stupid Windows 8 software I managed to get my Tascam working and recording. I'm using Sony recording software with it and everything works great. I used to use Magix recording software but I switched this time. I was so relieved when it was working I wanted to cry. Thank you sooooo much for your help!!!! My name is Nicole

I tried to follow the method above on an i7 running Win 8 in 64 bit, but it didn't seem to be getting me anywhere. I kept getting messages that the software was an incorrect version. With nothing to lose, I thought perhaps the process most likely to work was to use the Vista compatibility settings (on the expectation that not that much has changed since then, but a lot has changed since XP). It worked! So it seems that it's worth messing about. Thanks for letting me know it was possible - I mightn't have persevered without that!

Hi all
My problem was not solved with ANY "us-122" drivers in ANY compatibility mode.

But what DID actually work was installing the driver :

US-122mkII & US-144mkII Drivers for Windows 7, Vista, XP driver ver 2.03 (64-bit) - 1.76 MB

at the page :

http://tascam.com/product/us-122mkii/downloads/


This is the driver for the model US-122MKII.
As always: Download, unzip, right click the app file called "Setup" and go to "properties" of file.
Then to second tab, the"compatibility" tab.
I checked the box "run as administrator" and also the box "run this program in compatibility mode for".
There I chose Vista, because the file i downloaded (tascam_us_122_144mk2_win64_203) said it was for vista. (Oh..... I have 64b Windows. If you have 32b download the 32b driver instead)


And luckily it works! My friend who has the 144 model also used the equivalent driver.
The system recognizes the card as "us-122" not as mk2, so my guess is that TASCAM obviously made this driver to work for this card as well, but never bothered to state it on their site.....

Hope it helps others :)
