Unable to power up Dansrue cassette to MP3 converter with Audacity

I purchased a cassette to mp3 converter that uses audacity…everything is hooked up, it will not power up…any ideas. Thanks!

Did you put batteries in it? If it doesn’t work at all, even before you connect it to the computer, return it.

…Those cheap little USB cassette players have a rather bad reputation.

If you happen to have a regular analog cassette deck that still works there are other solutions. And if you also have a desktop/tower computer with a regular soundcard you shouldn’t need any additional hardware.

And once you get something working check to see if you have the latest version of Audacity (currently 3.0.2). If they ship a disc with Audacity along with the hardware it’s often outdated by the time you get it.
