Abstract (Summary)

Since the iPhone hit the market in 2007, there has been a large increase in the amount of recording devices of various sorts that become easily accessible and cost effective to the population at large. There is a great deal of information available on the mainstream devices for forensic professionals to review, and research is always ongoing to add to that information. Along with these well-known devices, we are also now able to get any number of cheap, cloned, and counterfeit devices that can do many of the same functions. Chapter 1 reviews devices that are commonly available at low cost and summarizes the possible problems with their use and the recovery of data to use as evidence in criminal and civil cases. Chapter 2 is a list of the devices and software used in this study, along with the basic information that is being reviewed for each type of media and device and the framework for the research done. Chapter 3 contains the data explored from each device, along with the findings from each item found. Finally, Chapter 4 is the conclusions drawn from the data found.
