Additions and changes to the TASCAM 2488 User’s Guide
Since the original 2488 manual was produced, there
have been a number of changes and revisions which
should be noted carefully before attempting to use
your 2488.
Notes on the use of the CD-RW drive
Media types Do not use 12x or high-speed (over
12x) CD-RW media with the 2488, as these types of
media are not supported. Only use 1x–4x CD-RW
Damaged media If a disc is scratched or dirty,
the 2488 may not operate properly. If this happens,
shut down the unit, and restart it. Do not attempt to
re-use the defective disc.
Compatibility with players In common with
other CD recorders, the 2488 can produce CD-RW
discs, but such discs may not be playable on ordinary
CD players (as mentioned on page 63 of the User’s
Guide). For compatibility with other CD players, we
strongly recommend that you use only CD-R media.
Recorded disc types The 2488 recognizes for
reading (and in the case of CD-RW media, erasing)
only CD-ROM MODE1 or CD-DA discs. Other
types of disc recorded using different standards cannot be read or erased by the 2488,
Ejecting discs It is important that you do not press
the CD-RW drive eject button while the drive is operational. If you do, it may cause problems in the operation of the 2488. We therefore recommend that you
always use the CD EJECT menu item (“CD EJECT” on
page 67 of the User’s Guide) to eject discs.
Notes on the hard disk format
As described in “Disk management and file import/
export” on page 65, the 2488 uses two disk formats
in its internal hard disk.
unused. TASCAM native partitions cannot be
accessed from a host computer using USB.
The FAT partition, used for USB data transfer, is
4 GB in size and the size cannot be changed.
and USB” on page 73 of the User’s Guide, it is mentioned that MacOS 9.0 and above is supported. We
strongly recommend that for best results, MacOS 9.2
is used. Upgrade from 9. or 9.1 if necessary.
The TASCAM native partitions take up the remainder of the disk, and may be 4, 8, 16 or 32 GB in size.
A maximum of four partitions may be allocated.
Note that it is possible to allocate four smaller partitions, and therefore leave part of the hard disk space
Supported operating systems In “The 2488
Formatting As mentioned in “Formatting the
disk” on page 66, you should not turn off the 2488
while formatting the hard disk, as this may prevent
the 2488 from booting.
