USB Connection

Using Windows 7 Premium Home, Service Pack 1
Using Audacity 2.1.2
New turntable with analog and USB outputs. Able to play through both, able to record using the analog cables, but not able to get Audacity to recognize the USB port as recordable input.

Ensure that you connect the USB device (and allow Windows a few moments to recognise it) BEFORE you launch Audacity.
If you launch Audacity first, you will need to “Transport menu > Rescan audio devices” before Audacity can see the USB device.
