Unable monitor sound before recording[SOLVED]

I am able to record from a cassette tape deck and replay is okay. But prior to making a recording I cannot hear audio which makes it difficult to identify an
individual track. I can’t find an answer to this in FAQ. As a newcomer to Audacity I’d appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance, Brown Owl.

A few minutes ago I posted a quert regarding I couls not monitor sound prior recording. Please ignore this.
I have since been going through the control panel and found answer to the problem. I had not clicked start monitor.
As I said I’m a newbie to all this so please excuse myn ignorance.

Thanks, though it is better in that case to reply to your own topic (I have now merged your two topics).


I have tried to address this in the FAQ:
