Not recording

I just installed Audacity and I’m trying to record from cassettes to my computer, Windows 7, but nothing is recording. I believe I have all the settings correct. I can start the cassette playing, click the record button on Audacity, and all that records is a buzz/hum noise, no music. What am I doing wrong?? :neutral_face:

I did something right, I can record. Now I have a humming noise in the background. What’s causing that?

How are you connected? If you have a desktop/tower computer you can connect from line-out or headphone-out to line-in on your soundcard. If you have a laptop with no line-in you’ll need an external interface with line inputs. [u]Here[/u] is some information to get you started.

I’m using the AGPTEK usb cassette player to record to the desktop using a usb cable.
