Hi David. Thanks for your E-mail.Yes, you are correct. It is the backspace mode I'm using. Book Port knows how to play the recording (i.e., it moves from file to file effortlessly). If I were to merge the 50 or so files, using a merge program on my PC, the files would be disjointed and my errors would still be played.
Here's the thing though. I did get my problem solved on my home computer. My work computer has an older sound card, which is probably why I can't have what Book Port is playing recorded by Audacity. Anyway, it does work at home. I play the recording on the Book Port, and Audacity records the playing of that recording from Book Port.

Hi Dave,I'm not familiar with the Book Port. I've had a quick look at the manual. When you say that you're using the rewind feature, is it the backspace mode that you're using, which is described in the manual?:
"During Recording or Pause mode, you may use the Backspace or Left Arrow to pause the recording so you may correct mistakes while you make the recording. When you press Left Arrow or Rewind, Book Port announces, "Backspace Mode" and lets you move to the beginning of the error for correction. Each time you press Rewind or Fast Forward or Left or Right Arrow, Book Port plays a small segment of the material at the current position. When you reach the desired correction point, press Record again to continue recording from that point."
If you're using this feature I'm surprised that this ends up creating lots of files. You'd have thought that the appropriate files would be merged, at least by the time you created a book. Maybe you could ask APH for suggestions on what to do. Having to rerecord you recording isn't a very satisfactory way of doing things (Even if you could get it to work).

Hi All!! I recently bought a Book Port DT. As I'm recording, I use its rewind feature to make corrections. Theproblem is that Book Port creates a new file every time I make a correction, so
by the time I'm done recording, I can have 50 files or so. I don't want tomerge these files, because the mistakes I made during the recording don't get
corrected. What I want to do is have Book Port play my recording and useAudacity to copy the recording onto my PC, so that I can further correct it and
add effects with Audacity. I have a patch cord. I'm connecting one end of the cord into the earphone jack of the Book Port. I'm connecting the other end into my PCs audio jack. I'm using Audacity, and I'm not getting anywhere. Here are what I think are the relevant Audacity settings: under "devices" (host), I've chosen the Windows DirectSound option. I also have chosen the settings of "Realtek HD Audio Output" and "Realtek HD Audio Input: line volume." Can anyone help me on this one? Thanks very much!
