I have totally screwed my computer up. I installed the cassette usb hardware, taped a cassette with success, however the media could not play it back… I uninstalled and reinstalled the software three times thinking I did something wrong, same outcome, I 'm not good with a computer, now I have audacity running 2 places at the same time and don’t know how to fix it ,please help, I think I did something wrong initially in the lame files which I can’t find or even know where to look for them.
If you mean Windows Media Player, just unplug the USB device from the computer then your computer will have sound again. Click this link with your mouse to find out why this happens: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_playback.html#usb .
LAME is only for exporting your recording as MP3 files. If you need to reinstall LAME please see this link: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#lame .
