I, being an idiot, unplugged the firewire cable before it was off, and now every time i plug it in, the lights on the tascam freeze and the pc cant "see" it, if anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated

I'm a little late replying to this... however it is worth mentioning that some firewire devices do not like to be hot plugged. To be safe, your equipment should always be powered off before plugging/unplugging a firewire device. I was burned this way too. I unplugged my MOTU Ultralite while both it and the computer were on. No matter what I did afterwards, I could never get the computer to see the firewire device... I also tried plugging it into my laptop: that meant something in the MOTU itself had been shorted from unplugging it.
