I have the software downloaded that came with the USB Cassette Capture, I have attempted to start this process of simply testing the device and cannot get anywhere with it.
Needless to say, starting up with this is very frustrating. I expected this to have “normal” new frustrations, but this is more than expectation.
If someone who can help me through getting the actual act of getting the audio to come off the cassette and into the electronic field, it would be VERY appreciated.
It can be a bit trickier than you might think… Audacity is a multi-purpose audio editor with recording capability and different people are using different hardware and there are lots of things you can do.

The current version of Audacity is 2.2.2 so if you have an older version it’s a good idea to update.
Plug in the USB device before starting Audacity. That way Windows will have already found it and it should show-up as one of the Audacity options.
Then select the USB device as your [u]Recording Device[/u]. (You probably won’t see the name of your device in the drop-down list, but it should say “USB something”.)
If everything goes well, you can click Record and you’re on your way.
There is some information about recording in the [u]User Manual[/u].
If you have trouble, let us know what’s going on.
Then after you (hopefully) get a recording, you may need some help with whatever you are trying to do… Make MP3s or CDs, etc.
