Look and find the USB audio device and see what sample rates it supports and how many inputs.

For some reason, none of your inputs show any supported rates.
Are you able to record from any input with any software? For example, can you record from the Realtek (on-board?) sound card with Windows Sound Recorder?
What's the "Device name: MME: Speakers (2- USB Audio CODEC )" ?
Do you have USB speakers connected?
Try disconnecting them (safely remove USB hardware) and see if that makes any difference.

Let's see if we can get something to work.
Do you have an ordinary computer microphone, or anything else that you can use for a test recording (such as a walkman and a suitable lead)?
By the way, is this a Laptop computer?

Connect your microphone to the computer and reboot.
Open Audacity and see if you can get it to record from the microphone - (do you know your way round the Windows Mixer?)
Look up the "Device Info" again from the Audacity help menu and post what it says.
Do you still have your USB turntable? It may be worth giving that a go as well - the setup for the USB turntable should be more or less identical to your new USB device, so it will be interesting to see if there's any major differences in the Device info.
I'm going to be off line 'till tomorrow now, but I'll look up this post again when I'm back (somebody else may of course pick it up in the mean time).
