Audacity 3.1.3 Windows 11 Connection Problems

Preamble. I have a new HP Envy Laptop with Windows 11 installed. I obtained a Denver VPL-120 Turntable Player which came with a USB cable and CD with Audacity for recording. My intention was to record some very old vinyl to USB stick for playing in the car. This would save breaking the new rules about changing cassetes whilst driving. Because the Laptop has no CD drive I downloaded the latest version of Audacity 3.1.3.

So far the s/w does not recognise the turntable. I’ve tried the usual things, disabled the microphone, uninstalled and re-installed Audacity tried different USB ports and USB cables (it’s the old printer style USB) all without success.

When I try to set up recording the manual tells me I have to select USB PnP Audio Devce which I cannot find.

The only indication I have that the turntable is connected ist that the Anti-virus s/w wants to scan the device when I connect the USB cable.

Any advice would be gratefully received

Windows 11, and recent updates to Windows 10, require that you give permission for each application to use the “microphone” (microphone = any audio input device).

Thank you for the link which has got rid of the errors. I can now record a low levels from the built in microphone but not using the USB cable from the turnable.

Are there any other settings to look at?

Many thanks
