input sound line flat

Hi - forgive me for this basic question - I’m new to Audacity. I’m looking to use a cassette to MP3 device. The devise shows up and when I select the usb connected device as my input, when I play the cassette, the sound isn’t coming through. Can anyone offer any advice? Thank you. jill

Run through the steps on this page. You may see “PnP Audio Device” instead of “USB Audio Device”. Make sure the device is on and playing a cassette.

When you say “the sound isn’t coming through” do you mean the input level meters in Audacity do not show any indication? Or do you mean you can’t hear while you’re recording?
