Laptop doesn't see Teca cassette deck

I am converting my old cassettes to digital format , using Audacity software.
I have an acer laptop running vista basic and have connected the Teac W-850 cassette deck to the laptop using a rca to usb cable,
the red and white phono lead is plugged into the left and right speaker outlet on the back of the tape deck and the other end is connected into the laptop via a usb port.
The laptop doesn't show anywhere on the laptop,
any one have any idea's ?
Thanks regards
Vic

I'm not sure why you are unable to see the usb device, but I am surprised you are using a speaker level output to connect to it and not a line level, which is a much smaller signal. I've never heard of an RCA to USB adapter, but I like the idea if it works. I normaly just go into the line input jack on the back when using a desktop computer. Does your laptop have a line input jack? Good luck.

How to record a cassette tape to a cd


Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

I CANT RECORD CASSETTES ONTO A FLASH DRIVE


You can't. Cassettes are analog and the USB only recognizes MP3. The USB will only record off a normal CD or a CD with MP3s on it. It won't record other formats. The unit only allows to record from CD to cassette or from CD to USB. There are some cassette decks that will convert to MP3. Just do a search for "cassette to MP3 converter"

Have a jvc MX-J500. (purchased as a previously owned unit) When a cd is inserted in any of the three trays it just says "no Disc". Radio works as well as the cassette player. System was dusty but appeared...


You could try a CD lens cleaning disc which will clean any dust off the laser lens. But it is possible the laser power can be low if it is an old player. this will stop the discs being read fence the fault No CD as it cant see the disc. This will mean either a new laser assembly or complete CD deck. Try the cleaning disc first and if that does not work take it to a service centre or just use it as a radio cassette in the garage.

I have a nsx-9000 cassette deck will not play.


Make a note of how the belt fits, then remove it and measure the diameter. Then buy a replacement, belts do go bad from time to time, so a new one might cure the problem. Put the diameter size (to the nearest mm result, IE: 50 or 55mm, not 52mm! Into google and "cassette belt" and you should find one for the job.

Hi.
Better quality cassette decks use this method as it puts less strain on the motor because it dosen't have to keep starting and stopping.
