Threaded View


I am having trouble recording a cassette player onto XP.

(1) I play a cassette recorder into my PC's line-in and I can hear it
clearly in the speakers.

(2) I select line-in on XP's recording control (SNDVOL32.EXE).

(3) However when I press the record button on Audacity, there is no audio
signal displayed on the graph.

I also tried XP's Sound recorder (SNDREC32.EXE) and Windows Media Player.

Can you advise?

IIRC, there is a menu choice in Audacity where you select
the recording source.

I'm a step closer. Here's some more info ...

I turned the cassette player right down and played into the PC's mic input.
A VU meter utility shows nicely fluctuating audio levels and the recording
is ok.

When I select the PC's line input (and remove all input/output leads) then
the recording level is at its max.  I still get a max reading with the
line-in sensitivity turned down in XP's Recording Control.

What's happening here?
