TUTORIALS - Tapeless Deck Project

Go to content


1. To prepare your Tapeless Deck for first use, turn on WiFi connectivity on deck phone and login to your home network. Remember that both Tapeless Deck and computer must work in the same network.

2. Click AirDroid icon and wait a while for the next screen. At the first use it may take some time...

3. Find and click blue "AirDroid Web" icon. It may be covered by ads, so sometimes you need to scroll the screen - look carefully...

4. Wait for the AirDroid server to start and exactly rewrite the green address fom AirDroid into the web browser addres field on your computer (just where you usually write "www.google.com" or other addresses).
Please be carefull and rewrite all letters, numbers, slashes, points and colons: http://192.168.xxx.xxx:8888 - please note the ":" colon mark before "8888"

5. Remember, DO NOT rewrite the address from this tutorial, the numbers probably will be different - use address actually provided by AirDroid :)

6. Did you hear the whistle? Go back to the deck and accept the connection on phone screen.

7. Now your web browser will show a webpage generated by AirDroid. It contains lot of useful informations about Tapeless Deck phone, such as available memory or battery status, and other junk that completely does not interest us at this moment.

Click FILES icon...

8. Localize "!!!_MUSIC" in SD CARD or  External SD Card folder (depending on phone configuration). This is your Tapeless Deck music catalog. You will find a few songs here that were uploaded during testing. Delete the files if you wish or use them to test your deck quickly.

9. Now you can upload music from your computer to the Tapeless Deck memory. Open folder with music in your computer, select files or folders and just drag them to the !!!_MUSIC folder on Tapeless Deck. Wait for the transfer to finish, observing the transfer status window on the lower right corner. That's all - now you may use Tapeless Deck app :)

It's a good idea to have your music organized in folders before transfer - by artists, albums, genres and so on, but if your files are correctly tagged, Tapeless Deck app will sort it automatically.
NOTE! In some cases, when the Tapeless Deck app can't find freshly uploaded songs (especially after big transfers), just restart the phone. Hold the phone switch (a dedicated deck key or button) for a few seconds, wait for a menu to appear and select RESTART.
Is there something still unclear? Just let me know - I will complete this page with missing information.
