I just got it in the mail today. But when I sit the thing on my desk...or the kitchen table or any other FLAT surface, it won't sit on all fours..kinda like and old chair that has one leg that is shorter than the others and you just rock back and forth in it....

I haven't had it over 30 minutes yet and it is already very annoying.

Does anyone else have this problem and/or able to offer some suggestions or help on this subject?

Thanks

Mine sits fine on a flat surface. And no, it's not supposed to do that. Is something missing (like one of the little rubber thingies that you often find on the bottom of devices), or does it look like the bottom surface isn't straight?

for the most part everything under the bottom looks straight. My wife brought to my attention that some devices have the ability to change the angle that the unit sits at. Like maybe the little rubber things can screw out and become longer or shorter....Is that the case?

P.S.: No, really, it should sit stable on a flat surface.

aviation did you have driver issues with your tascam when you first got it? if so what was the solution.

aviation did you have driver issues with your tascam when you first got it? if so what was the solution.No, I don't think I did. I installed it on my iMac about a year and a half ago, and then again on my new MacPro just a few weeks back - following the instructions from the manufacturer. I didn't have any problems.

Is yours not working, or what symptoms are you seeing that make you believe something is wrong?
