ION Tape Express device not recognized

I downloaded Audacity 2.0.3 (installer) on my Windows 7 O/S and followed directions in setup until I plugged in my ION Tape Express and got “no devices found”. I’m assuming that every step following that was fruitless, because I was unable to adjust volume or record anything. Any help would be appreciated.

The ION should be connected to the computer and recognised by Windows before you open Audacity.
There should then be a USB option in the recording input settings of the device toolbar.
