Can you connect the USB to a cigarette lighter adapter so you can listen to tapes in your car?
Asked by: Vicki
Yes, the Tape Express Plus can be powered via USB, so you can use a cigarette lighter style USB adapter for power while in your car (just as you would to charge a smartphone). The Tape Express Plus can also be powered by two AA batteries. If you do also use batteries for power, you may want to take the batteries out of the Tape Express Plus when you are powering via USB.

One of the reviews says that this will not digitize "homemade" tapes - only factory tapes. Is this true?
Asked by: Mike
The tapes I digitized with the ION Audio Tape Express Plus were mostly "homemade" tapes and they turned out fine. I am happy to have discovered this converter.

question

This sounds too good to be true, but I want to convert spoken tapes that contain many pauses. Will the device create a new 'track' each time there's a silence? And if there isn't a pause, will it create a track after 4 mins anyway?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, Thanks for posting!As was mentioned, there are two settings in the software: one to split the tracks and one to record continuously where you can split the tracks manually. Use the continuous recording and this will record up to the entire side of the tape.
