Cassette to PC

I have been transferring my cassette’s to my PC (Windows XP). The recoding stops between 32 and 34 minutes. some of my tapes are 45 minitues long.
Any ideas how to overcome this problem?

Are you running out of hard drive space? Audacity will record until it runs out. One machine we have claims it will go 57 hours.

Also pay attention to where Audacity is putting things. Preferences > Directories. That directory should be on a large fast hard drive.

Audacity will also have problems if it runs into a highly fragmented hard drive. When was the last time you defragged your drive?


Are you using a USB device to transfer your music? People have trouble with that.
