Please don't hijack existing threads, especially when your problem is not the same as the original poster's. It's always better to start a new thread otherwise the replies get confusing. I have split this off into a separate thread for you.
For a start I would definitely upgrade to the latest Audacity which is 1.3.14 - the 1.2 series is now ancient and hasn't been maintained/updated for years now. You can get 1.3.14 from here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/

Are you talking about the instructions that come with your USB tape deck here? If so that's nothing to do with us - you would need to take this up with the manufacturer.
We have an extensive manual for the 1.3 series of Audacity: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Main_Page
Of particular use to you will be this set of tutorials from the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Tuto ... iscs_to_CD
particularly this one (most of the information here also applies to using USB tape decks: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Reco ... turntables
Ther is also a Wiki for Audacity which also offers a wealth of information on the use of Audacity: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Audac ... _Home_Page
