Question about ION Audio TAPE2PCA Single Dual Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Tape2PC USB "not recognized"

The Tape2PC machine connects to a computer with a line that plugs into the computer's USB port. The machine worked for several uses, but then when I tried to connect it, my computer gave a message "USB device not recognized." I tried it with other computers too -- so I know it is not only an issue with one computer. The machine turns on and the tape deck functions seem fine, but it will not transmit sound to a computer.

I have gotten no help from the manufacturer.

If the problem is only the connector line, I don't know if I can simply find a replacement somewhere.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

    have you adjusted the sound settings in the control panel, changing output to 16bit 4400hz for the device? I'm at work at the mo but can be more specific later when I log on at home. I had my unit repaired(changed pcb usb) by numark.

I had the same problem a few days ago (April 5 2009). The problem turned out to be a dodgy USB socket on the back of the Tape2PC. There was a bent & broken pin in the USB socket.

Perhaps you have a similar problem with the USB port - have a close look at it in good light.

I took the the cover off the tape2pc (6 screws), and then removed the small circuit board containing the USB socket (2 screws). The part number on this board is 0038-2410-0000. This small board is connected to the main circuit board on the base of the box by a short cable. You just unplug this cable from the USB port board, cut a cable tie, and replace the USB port board. It is a very simple and quick job - it took no more than 10 minutes and only requires a small Philipps head (+) screw driver.

I don't know where you live, but I phoned the UK distributor for Ion and received a replacement board within 2 days.

The PC now recognizes the tape2pc again but I can't get any volume when I try to record my cassettes. Any suggestions with this?

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

Here's what you can do since this is a USB wireless adapter, first connect the USB adapter on a different USB port on the computer better if you connect it on the back USB port of the computer tower and check if the computer will recognize it and if its recognize you can already continue with the software installation , but if not you can restart first the computer and check if the adapter will be recognized if still not the next thing to do here just to know if the adapter is good or bad is to connect it on a different computer and just to check if it will be recognized once its connected to a USB port , because a device should be automatically will be recognized by a computer once you connect it so if its still not recognized by a different computer adapter is bad...

Greetings....

Please try to check if your USB port both rear and front USB port are not defective. Most common problem of defective usb ports are when plug your usb devices it won't recognize the device you inserted. So to make sure that your USB Ports are not the main cause why your computer won't recognize devices you inserted.

My computer will not recognize my Genius Mousepen 8x6...


it happens in two cases 1)first try to check out the device by connecting it in another usb port. 2)if it shows the same problem there then its the problem of the usb port internally,where the device wire is been connected. its actually by a screws internally.if the screws get loose the port becomes weak so the connection of the device does not get completely and properly detected.or the other case can be that the port internally is got loose change the usb port of the machine where you are connecting the machine.the new spare port is easily available at local computer shop. thanks.

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.


My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

USB DEvice not recognized


I had a problem like this -- tried plugging the camera in to the rear USB slots not the front ones and it worked fine.

I think that it doesn't like going via a USB hub, but wants a direct connection. All of the USB ports on my computer are connected direct to the motherboard (i.e. none are on PCI cards or anything), but looking at the hardware info for the computer, it looks like the motherboard has a few "direct" USB connections, and then an on-board hub which the front ports connect to. If your computers are the same, that would explain things. I'd suggest trying each USB port one at a time (turn the camera off before plugging in, and back on when in) and see if one of them works. Wouldn't hurt to power the camera from the mains at the time too.

Static in the middle of a recording.


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.

When i plug in my ipod shuffle to my computer it doesnt recognize it or itunes. can you help?


Are you using a PC and not a Mac?
If so, Shuffle's require a USB2 connection on PCs. Some PCs advertise USB2 ports. However, sometimes the USB port on the front of the machine is actually the slower USB v1. Try connecting your Shuffle to a USB port on the back of the machine. If it works, that's the one you need to always connect to.
