Um...why not just record directly to cassette tape from the computer? Most sound cards should have output jacks that you can connect to other equipment.
Because it fits in tape decks and plays through them. Like cassette-adapter for cd players. The media is not the cassette tape like case, that's the actual player.Originally posted by JW:
It's just weird that the device would use media that looks like cassette tapes.
If I'm not mistaken, it will respond to FF and Rew commands from the cassette player controls...Originally posted by S4Tip:
Thats cool product, I really like it. It would be nice to have a remote control with it since the controls will not accessible once you put in the tape player.
The cassette-looking device does not store MP3's on tape. It stores them in flash memory (32 or 64mb). The cassette-looking device interfaces to the tape deck, just like cd-player adapters, by putting a magnetic head against the tape deck head. This device also has a headphone jack for out-of-car listening...Originally posted by IS300GTE:
how does the tape recognize the mp3 format, i know that is why a normal cd player won't play mp3 cd's, because it doesn't know how to convert the data.
It has internal batteries for when used as a portable device. But the intenal generator would be cool...Originally posted by deepcover:
I assume it isnt powering itself out of the tape deck, unless there is a cord that externally connects to a cig. lighter outlet.
