Due to this trouble, I have upgraded to Audacity Version 2.0.2. Audacity is the best!
Anyway, I have the Hype cassette to MP3 converter. I followed the directions supplied, but in Audacity (and Windows 7), my input options were ‘Microsoft Sound Mapper’ and ‘Microphone Array 2 - USB PnP Audio Device’.
I followed the instructions in the Audacity Wiki for USB turntables, and wound up with ‘Microphone Array 3 - USB PnP Audio Device’.
After some fiddling around I could get a humming when recording which I could attribute to the cassette deck as it stopped when the tape stopped, and started when the tape started, but still no actual sound … i.e.music. I’ve checked the tape and it works fine in a standard cassette player.
I’m not sure what to try next, so I’m open to suggestions. One other thing, even though I read that I won’t get ‘Windows Sounds’ during this process, I do. And I’ve tried all combinations of possible inputs, even though there are only two. ( So I’ve tried both! )
The other usb device I use is a USB 3D sound device that I only plug in when I need to use a microphone. It’s not usually plugged in and isn’t now.
Thank you for your time.
