Boasting a large 4 gigabyte flash copacity, this isn't just a tiny recorder. It doubles as a data drive as well - which you can use to transfer files between work and home, and carry family photos, music, or videos. That said, each gigabyte holds over seventeen hours of recording, so even with a couple full-length movies on the drive, you'll still have plenty of room to take notes, record long-winded speeches, and capture all your brilliant ideas. Empty, the drive can hold about seventy hours of audio, in as many or as few different messages as you like.
This pinky-sized thumb drive has a tiny handle at the top which you can use to clip to your key ring or hang around your neck or backpack. A removable plastic top keeps the built-in USB port safe at all times. Designed for rugged conditions, this lightweight recorder comes equiped with a special battery which affords ten to fifteen hours of recording time before needing to be recharged. A no-skid surfass coting holds the unit in place when left on a table or desk. Perhaps best of all, the recorder recharges automatically through the computer's USB port, as you copy or listen to your messages. Smaller than an MP3 player yet simple to use, loaded with power and tons of free space, this is one recorder you will buy once ... and use forever!
Note: Recording format is IMA ADPCM Wave 16 kHz, 4 Bit, Stereo
Directions for the Recording Flash Drive From Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.
First, connect your new drive to the computer's USB port, after removing the plastic lid that covers the USB port. Insure the Switch is in the Off position.
After a couple of hours for battery charging, remove the drive from the computer, replacing the plastic cap. Flick the switch to the On position, wait about six seconds, then start speaking.
When you are finished recording, flick the switch to the Off position.
You may repeat the above steps whenever you wish to make a new recording.
Then, to charge the recorder or listen to your recordings, just connect it to your computer again.
All files are saved in Wave format, with numerical filenames.
