    Will an Ion Tape express work in Linux?


    My boombox that played and dubbed audiotapes died. I went to various places looking for a new one but no one makes them anymore. A clerk at B&H talked me into buying an Ion Tape Express tape to MP3 converter/player so that I could transfer audiotapes into my computer. When i got home I saw the small print that says I need windows or a Mac os!!

    Do any LF members use this equipment on a Linux box??
    I am not going to open the box until I find out if it will work using a Linux os!! Thank You!

    I've not used it. But a few searches shows that it can be made to work in Linux.
    Several threads are posted in the Debian forums, Audacity forums and others.
    So while it should work for you, there may be a few kinks that need to be worked out.

    As a side note, if you want to actually find another tape deck, you might want to check out a local flea market or something.
