Crosley Turntable through USB - no good

I have a Dell Laptop with Windows 7, audacity 1.2.6 and the above turntable. My device is set for the audio however audacity doesn’t find any device, it only finds audio tracks currently in folders??? Frustrated.

Plug-in the USB before starting Audacity. Then you should be able to select the USB turntable as your [u]Recording Device[/u]. (It probably won’t say Crosley but it should say “USB something…”)
