I called tech support at Tascam, as I was having exactly the same issue.
Here's what to do:
Run the Driver v. 2.00 UNINSTALLER
download the 1.03 for OSX driver, and the 1.02 firmware updater from the tascam's 1641 resource page
Install the v1.03 Driver (restart if it tells you to)
Run the 1.02 firmware updater, turn on the 1641 and hit the 'write' button
After that, uninstall v1.03 with the included Uninstall App
Then Re-install driver v. 2.00
This fixed everything for me.
It appears my problem was caused by setting the system audio 'input' to the 1641 ('output' doesn't seem to matter). Once I changed that, Garage Band, Soundtrack Pro and Audacity worked perfectly. Fortunately all the recording app's I use have their own audio settings independent of system audio. Things are working so well now that I think I'll leave things as they are. Should new problems arise, I'll give the update procedure you describe a try.
So the Mac's system audio in is NOT set to the 1641? And it doesn't matter what you set the output to? How did you find this out? I'm having issues -- cannot even get Cubase to play any audio files (imported WAV) let alone record one. I just got this 1641/Cubase 4 LE hooked up today and have gone through everything can think of, and read about, but still cannot get it working right.
