TRACKS RECORD OVER EACH OTHER

I am brand new to Audacity. I’m trying to record off a USB turntable. When I record the first track, it is OK. But when I record a second track in the same project, on playback both tracks play over each other. Very frustrating. Can anyone help? Windows XP. Gemsound USB turntable. SoundMax sound card.

Press Pause rather than Stop at the end of the first track - then pause to start again.

Or do what you are already doing and move the tracks with the time shift tool so that they follow one another.
