| X1531 USB to Gameport problem|
I asked a couple of weeks back about ways to use the X1531 cable with a laptop without the gameport, and someone suggested the USB comvertor cable. I got one and tried it out, and the tape player powers up when using this, but it's too weak! It's almost like a portable tape player that needs 4 AA batteries operating on just two. It's playing tapes too slowly and eventually it grinds to a halt as if it has run out of energy. Clearly not enough power is getting to the datasette player. Am I busted flush or are there any ways of boosting the power coming from the PC to the C16 tape player?
