I am not too sure if this is the correct place to raise a problem with a cassette capture device, but as the device must be known and used by many users of the site, and being a bit of a green, I must start somewhere.
I personally possess four of these devices and over a period of a few weeks use, all in one form or another have suffered with the same problem, which appears as an intermittent instant reset loop. By which, I mean the end of tape trigger that allows the automatic replaying of the other half of the tape. When misbehaving, any playing tape, no matter what kind or size, no sooner starts to play (to be recorded), when the end of tape trigger is activated and the tape is thus rejected, even before any data had been transferred from tape to computer.
I say intermittent, because after a various number of fast forward and then rewinds of the installed actual (to be recorded) cassette, a truce appears and finally recording can proceed (as normal) with any luck. I am certain that this intermittent (air trigger) action of a standard, and well known device is not limited to myself alone, I therefore ask if any other sufferers are experiencing the same problems and if a solution is available.
The equipment is the standard ‘SUPER USB CASSETTE CAPTURE’ in the Sony walkman size box.
All I can say is HELP.
