If you are looking for a good interface with SPDF I/O, my Focusrite interface has been in the YS for a while.  It's a very solid unit for not much money.

Interesting. I have been having the same issue on my M-Audio 2496 card with Windows 10. Intermittent soft noise glitches when transferring DAT > SPDF in. I have moved to: DAT>SPDF>Tascam DR680>SD Card>Computer. Not ideal but it works. Would love to get back into a SPDF in card or box to go directly digital into the computer.
Could you move this project to an older machine, or boot from an XP backup? (don't connect to the internet maybe!)

Lack of S/PDIF I/O on most of these is a deal killer for me: I have too many DATs that need to be transferred.

Realized about a month ago that my old sound card, an M-Audio FireWire, wasn't working perfectly for me... it's somehow developed a habit of randomly inserting 8-sample noise glitches
Could be the W7 machine instead.
Seems to be quite unpredictable and intermittent, but it's a problem no matter what!

Now doing digital transfers DAT to SD722, then pulling them off that machine via the FW connection.
Kind of a hassle, but it solves that part of my problem.

Lack of computer/network connectivity on the Tascam DA-3000 is another bummer.
I don't think it makes sense to make a digital transfer to flash media, then move the physical media to another machine for editing access to it.

I assume that anyone using the DA-3000 is only using it for transfers.
Anyone out there saving the flash cards as an additional backup source?
id get a good CF card and skip the slowfire wire transfer speeds.
there are a couple people here who do just buy new cards as they old ones fill up.
thats great for cheap SD media, not so much for CF
if it aint broke, don't fix it
