just read through your post and it rang a few bells with my own experience a couple of years ago. I used it for two years with my laptop, its not a compatibility issue.
I also had the intermittent sound problem and yes when you are excited by the sounds your are getting it becomes a big frustration.
I managed to solve this issue again by having help from this forum, this may help you too I dont know.
What I found was that because the laptop I wanted to use my Toneport with is the only laptop I own and I use it for internet wirelessly also, the wireless connectivity was affecting the Toneport when connected. The route to painless playing was to 'disable' the wi fi driver on the laptop. Ok, its a pain but if you are settling in for a long playing session its really only a few clicks away.
Just click on your 'devices' folder, scroll down and find your wi-fi adapter and you should be able to disable it. Obviously to connect back to the net you need to re-instate it, again by the same process, a few clicks, no hassle comapred what it seems like you are going through.
Really hope this helps you out, as I know only too well the frustrations with some of this gear, it can be a steep learning curve !
best of luck !

Sorry to hear about the problems.
Just a few ideas - you've probably tried anyway so forgive me in advance.
First, I unplugged my ux2 recently and by mistake I think put it in a different usb socket, and it then went and reinstalled the drivers by itself. It worked fine still, but this was strange.
I just wondered if maybe some of the 'losing the drivers' thing might be because of unplugging and plugging into another usb socket (probably isn't - cos it has prob happened to you even without changing socket )
The thing is though, if its what I have said, then the drivers would still be there somewhere, so it probably isn't this.
Cutting out sound etc. could (again you have probably tried this) be due to stuff running on the computer and the buffer size set in the Line6 Audio-Midi Devices thing (found in line 6 folder in the tools folder).
If you haven't tried it, try moving the sliding scale thing along fully to the right and apply etc. and restart podfarm or whatever, and see if it helps. If it does, then move the bar back left as far as it will go before cutting happens again.
Before doing this, I'd try closing any background programmes running like virus checkers/firewalls/printer things, etc. - I go into task manager and close half of the things (ones I know are not needed).
Here are a couple of pages (which you have possibly already looked at):http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2085
Hope you get things working,

Thank you for trying to resolve my issues with the toneport !
Indeed the wireless could interfere with the device, I didn't thing about it ! I'm also using only wireless connection with my laptop so I'll take care to disable it when I record now. I also didn't know about the buffer set size in line 6, so thank you also for this one !
It turns out that I decided to use the ultimate solution, so I formatted my laptop and re-installed everything in Windows 7 on an empty and clean system.I am pretty much convinced that most of the problems were due to this crappy old win xp... so far I encountered no problems at all, drivers are stable and I used the device for some hours ! it is just awesome like I said !
I'd like to apologize if I may have been a little rush in what I said, because my problems were obviously operating system or computer related...
I love my toneport and the sound out of it kicks *** !
I would recommend users experimenting problems to quit Win Xp if they have and run it on Win 7 or 8...
Thank you again for your consideration for my issues and for your suggestions !
