Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I bought an ElectroBrand/Encore Technology cassette converter that is supposed to record tapes into my computer. When I plug the unit into my MacBook, it says the device uses too much power & that port is disabled. (MacBook is plugged in, not running on battery.) Is there a way to work around this? thanks

Well, you can plug it into a PC and see if that does the same thing. If so it is defective as in shorting components in it. But what do you expect from items that are made in China. You are better off with a restored regular deck and then plugging audio into your computer. You will get much better results that way. All USB decks are junk.

SOURCE: Tape shows playing but no sound

Is sound at the headphone socket?
Does the meter show audio output?
If the answer is yes to these questions check that the connections to the amp are correct and the amp is set up is ok.

A good cleaning to the rollers and tape head with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick

SOURCE: 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.

I get a tape saved into a file - how do I move it to a disc?


I'm not sure how Encore Technology Portable Cassette Converter works with data. You are supposed to conect it to your computer via USB and convert audio files to digital audio format (MP3, WMA, etc) with an audio editor application. It comes with Audacity Audio Editor.
I found this tutorial to manage DATA.
Check it:

I want to begin converting music from my computer onto cassette tapes using a device i've just bought. Can i use this device to firstly, override tapes? And Secondly does my record button even work?


check the top of the tape cassette if plastic removable tabs missing it will behave like a read only cassette if missing sticky tape can be used to cover the holes to make cassette recordable.
