No Sound on Playback

I’m using windows 7, how do i hear sound before i record?

Which version of Audacity (look in Help > About Audacity).
What are you trying to record? What recording device are you using?

I’m using 2.1.2, trying to record cassettes using Radioshack CTR-121 cassette player/recorder so i can burn them to CDs. :slight_smile:

Enable “Software Playthrough” in the Audacity “Transport” menu, then click on the recording meter to activate it.

I had already done that, still no sound

Check the Windows Sound Control Panel
