No sound on CD's in CD player recorded from USB Turntable

Just connected my USB turntable according to the instructions. I was able to use the Audacity software and record to my computer. I then recorded to a CD. The problem is that the CD works in my computer but on a CD player there is just static. I found out that I needed a Dynex Mini-to-RCA stereo audio cable and 2 inline connector plugs in order for the audio to work on the CD in players because my turntable is not connected to a stereo (the red and white cables coming from the turntable). Where do I get the inline connector plugs and is there another name they would go by? Best Buy said they used to carry them but not any more. I cannot get sound through a CD player. What do I need to do? Thanks


I’m going in a different direction. You didn’t use enough words there.

“I exported my show to a 44100, 16-bit, Stereo WAV file, imported that into Roxio Easy CD Creator Music CD authoring software and followed the instructions to burn a Music CD.”

What part of that are you missing? Roxio is just an example. It doesn’t have to be them.


You are probably making a “data CD” and not a “music CD”

Oh, and Koz’ recipe for 44.1kHz 16-bit PCM stereo is (part of) the Red Book standard for CDs - and is definitely the way to go …


I was able to answer my own question. The inline connectors I was looking for are called plug couplers. Also, one response was that I was making a data CD, but I was making an audio or music CD. Everything is working now.
