The Neostar Tape Express tape to MP3 converter means that you can still listen to all those old mix tapes of songs on the radio that you and your family used to make. 

For some of you, this fantastic device will help bring back memories of those Sunday evenings spent recording the Top 40, by transferring them from the old cassette format on to your iPod, phone or MP3 player.

The Neostar Tape Express can either run on batteries or plug into your computer's USB port. Just pop your tape into the cassette player, press play and record using the software, and start bringing your old music collection into the 21st century.

And that's not all: you can also bring your old films and slides to digital life with the Neostar Film Scanner. Your much-loved, but probably long-unseen, film negative and slide collection can be brought bang up to date by transforming them into digital files and saved directly to an SD card – with no PC required.

Scanned images can be previewed, edited and saved to digital, quickly and without a computer. Once saved to SD card you can playback images on a digital photo frame, on a television using the AV lead, your mobile phone, computer and also make them ready for printing. 

It’s the perfect gift for family members and a great opportunity to dust off those family albums and share them once again.
