I purchased the usb cassette capture. I have windows xp. I’ve installed the cd. The problem I’m having is that it the instrucions say to go to “edit”, then “Preferences”. Says to set recording device to USB audio device. But I only get 2 options in the drop down box. “microsoft sound mapper-input” and “microphone (conexand high defin)”. I don’t know what to do
It seems Audacity does not yet recognise the USB capture device.
Make sure you have latest Audacity 2.0.2:
See Help > About Audacity for the version you have now.
Before launching Audacity, make sure Windows recognises the USB device, then start Audacity.
See here if Windows does not recognise the device:
Then read this Tutorial in the Manual:
