Question about ION Audio TAPE2PC Single Cassette Deck

2 Answers

Static in the middle of a recording.

While recording off a cassette, I can rarely get through a tape without having to start over because in the middle of the recording I start hearing static and it is no longer recording from the tape. The only solution I currently have is to start over and hope this time it works.

I'm using Windows XP Media Center.

    When transferring cassettes to my mac, a terrible static starts up a little bit into the recording.  I watch the gain carefully, keep the levels out of the red, but still it happens

    Same problem and it is intermittent. When the distortion starts, I'll stop recording and listen to make sure the tape is okay. Often, the sound is suddenly clear. What is going on? I've turned off all other applications (as suggested) but can't fix the problem.

    Same problem here-- and now the A deck is only putting out sound through the left channel only...so I have to play everything through the B (record) deck. Still, when using that side I will get static in the middle of a recording and have to start over! What is going on?
    Now I have another problem today. I have my amplified record player hooked up to the inputs on the cassette deck. The level meter indicator responds only when I have the B deck recording. I have made fine recordings this was (though I still get the static problem every other time I record ANYTHING), now I cannot get my computer to recognize the record input-- even with the Level indicator on the cassette deck peaking where it should. A cassette will still work though. What is going on with this thing???

I had the same problem, but the reason for it seemed to be that the USB cable from the cassette deck wasn't plugged directly into my computer, but via a hub. When I plugged the cable directly into my computer (PC, using Windows XP), the problem disappeared, or seems to have disappeared so far.

I had the same problem and changed my machine twice, eventually I found that by removing the USB plug from the back of the machine and replacing it, the problem cured itself. Obviously the USB ports on these machine is dodgy. I transfered over two hundred LPs last winter but now when I try to connect to my Mac I get zilch - by way of a signal and am about to chuck it (the ION) in the bin! What a shame they can't improve the build as the 200 that I did record were great.

I recorded a cd from a cassette tape. The tape sounds good but the recorded cd has much static


I would need to hear how it sounds first hand, it may be a copy guard that is causing this.

You cannot push it in without a recordable tape in the unit. The mini cassette tapes have a removable erase prevention tab on each side in the front. If removed, you cannot push record. Try another tape. Otherwise the recorder needs repair.

How do I eliminate 3 minutes of static, that I accidentally recorded from the VHS tape onto the disc. I want to record something after that but don't want 3 minutes of static in the middle of my recording.


besides sitting there to hit stop when the static part starts i would suggest loading the video onto your computer and use a video editing program to edit out the static from your recording - if you load 2nd thing your were going to record you can even put in effects and join them together as a "double feature" if you want

I have a JVC (stereo, radio, cassette, recorder) and it's buzzing


If it is only when the tape is running, it could be motor noise.
Worn bearing in the motor or maybe a suppressor has failed, if it has one.

Problem is dirty / clogged video head of v-8 player or camcorder what ever you are using for playback. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette for head cleaning.
Please check tapes on another camcorder as tapes seems OK.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

If you see the line while in the camera mode (actually recording a scene), then the line will be on the recording most likely. Check your tape for damage by lifting open the front of the cassette (tab on left side of tape), pull tab back while opening cover and inspect for creases or damage. Either of these cases will be non-repairable (bad recording). If the tape path is out of line the then it may be possible to have a tech realign the tape path to correct problem.
