    Is this a USB interface or does it hook into the audio card of a computer. Most laptops only have mic inpute as far as 1/8" connectors so you can not put line level in that jack. Often times a Audio to USB interface needs to be bought for laptops. In a tower computer a PCI Ecpress audio card might be the correct answer.Most the time this complaint ends up being the wrong interface and or level matching.

Where is the data gone. Can someone explain. Nico

SOURCE: When I am recording from my ion tape 2pc I am

Hi, where are you signal from?
Try and get the recording signal either from the input from the back or the phone at the front.

And also check the source you are recording from, that might be the problem too.

Take care.

SOURCE: Hi i,ve got some tapes

I don't own and am not familiar with this device but my advice would be to turn all progs off. As long as you are not on the internet and you have no media connected then turning the anti virus off is safe as your computer is in a stable condition. I would also try using a different usb slot if you have that option as the distorted sound you are describing may be coming from interference with your usb port or cable. Good luck and I hope you manage to record those tapes!

No sound from the left channel of my technics sl-b35 turntable


First of all remove the wires to the cartridge. With the amp on, touch each of the wires to the cartridge with your finger. one at a time. On one you should hear a loud buzz on the left and on another a loud buzz on the right.
If you get no loud buzz on the left. There is something wrong with either the connections between the deck, or the pre-amp of the amplifier. This will not effect any other function on the amp such as tape or cd.
If you do get a loud buzz on the left, check the cartridge connection or replace the cartridge.

Humming sound


Samsung states - A buzzing sound from your plasma TV is normal. It is caused by the electrical charges used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.It is also important to determine the type of buzzing sound. A sound like a ground hum is completely normal. This buzzing can originate near the power cord connection or from the SMPS board position on the upper back of the TV. The buzz will be more audible as contrast increases on the screen, most notably when displaying an all white screen. If the buzzing sound is loud, you may have the Contrast set too high. Lower the contrast to reduce or eliminate the buzzing.You may also have loud buzzing if the rear of your Plasma TV is too close to a wall or other hard surface. Try moving your TV away from the wall until the buzzing is minimized. [1]
If the buzzing is at a higher frequency and resembles a crackling sound (like the sound of Velcro being pulled apart), and originates from the upper middle back of the TV, you likely have a failing SMPS board. Place a support call with Samsung to have the SMPS board replaced.FP-T5084 Have a known buzzing problem with a very simple fix.If the buzzing is coming from the left or right sides of the rear and the volume can be changed by pressing lightly on those locations, you are probably hearing the vibration of the grounding springs on the back panel. Call Samsung (or whoever) and have a technician confirm the problem. The easiest fix is to insulate the offending spring by applying some felt tape.

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo


Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

One thing that can cause this buzzing is the recording machine being too close to a computer screen which can give off powerful magnetic fields at 50-60Hz.

Marching band and live band concerts come out distorted


I'm sorry to say that there isn't a way to make bad audio good. You can sometimes make it a little better but it sounds like yours is distorted beyond help.

Your built-in microphone automatically senses how hard to "listen". Generally, being closer is better but in your case the signal was so loud that your audio sensors "clipped" the sound to protect your circuits. That means there is no signal in those gaps that could even be corrected.

The best you can do is see if someone else had a successful recording.

Audio is making a buzzing sound....


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
