Use Audacity to listen to cassesttes or albums?

I have a newer record player and a cassette deck that have USB outputs into my PC. All I wish to do is listen to my old records and cassettes. I did it months ago but not I cannot remember how? I thought I used to perform this by checking “Software playthrough of input”, press the RECORD button and also have the PAUSE button clicked but I hear nothing. FYI - the recording level meter is picking up my mic but nothing else. Help!

You have to tell Audacity you want to record from the USB device, rather than the built-in mic, see … Tutorial - Selecting Your Recording Device - Audacity Manual

With Windows Listen To This Device you don’t need to run any application.
