Problems recording DJ please help me

Hi People,
Hope someone can help me out. I use Audacity to record my DJ mixes, just strated using Audacity. Problem is every time i record then play it back it comes out all distorted. I got phono leads into back of my Technics mixer (REC OUT) then other end into my laptop micro phone port. It records music but its all distored and fuzzy. Ive tried messing about with all sorts of settings but nothing works. Ive also put other part of lead into other port, but that don’t work. Has anyone got any ideas, please help. Thanks Guys : )

You are probably overloading the microphone port. Microphones work at very low signal levels.
