Radio Shack scanner

Hi I have a Radio Shack Pro-528 scanner that I am trying to record from. I have a USB to COM cord. I use the headphone jack for the output from the scanner and a USB for the input. This could be a Windows issue but Audacity does not recognize it. In Device manager in windows under ports it has the USB to Serial Comm Port (COM3). How doe I get Audacity to use it an an input. Thank You.


Audacity can only record from an “audio” port.
A “Serial Comm port” is not an audio port (, so Audacity will not be able to record from it.
