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.

I get a tape saved into a file - how do I move it to a disc?


I'm not sure how Encore Technology Portable Cassette Converter works with data. You are supposed to conect it to your computer via USB and convert audio files to digital audio format (MP3, WMA, etc) with an audio editor application. It comes with Audacity Audio Editor.
I found this tutorial to manage DATA.

Cassette mate


The product arrived with an instruction manual. I followed the instructions, installed the included software, and then was unable to get the product to work as my PC (Windows 7) did not seem to recognize the device. I tried several USB ports to no avail. I emailed the seller and promptly received an email with different instructions. Although the software version on the installation CD was different from that referenced in the instructions, I was able to install and finally got the device to work as needed. The problem is that there are two programs on the installation CD and one (cassettemate) appears not to function, while the other (audacity) is what is needed. This is not indicated in the instructions that come with the device.Close cassette mate window and open audacity press play in the cassette player and press recording button in audacity program.

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.)

How do you record a Cd from a cassette tape on the Crosley that can be used later on a laptop computer?


I use a simple program (FREE) called Audacity (audacity.com). It allows you to capture the song(s) and then save them as a .wav or MPEG file on your computer. From there you can burn a CD. You will need a cable (Radio Shack) to connect the AUDIO OUT on your tape player to your MIC input on your laptop. There are a variety of connector types but the folks at Radio Shack can help. Pretty easy to use and AUDACITY has a tutorial on "how to" do it.
Good Luck. I have ALL my old cassettes on CD now.

MODEL NOM7740-N, HOW TO CONNECT THE TAPE TO LAPTOP FOR CASSETTE CONVERTION

Copy audio tapes to CD's


Hello Trevor,

Easiest way I can think of is as follows:
1. Connect the "phones" of your cassette player to the "Line in" of your PC. Line In is coloured blue, you will need a a 3.5" to 3.5" male audio cable.
2. Next, install some sound capturing program on your computer. I can recommend Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
3. Start the cassette player, check the volume levels, do some short test records. Once you are satisfied with the result, rewind and record side A of the cassette, then side B. Using again Audacity, you can cut the desired parts of the record and save them in the format and quality you like, I guess *.mp3.
4. Burn the files to a CD. You can use CD Burner XP Pro: http://cdburnerxp.se/

I hope that I have been very helpful. :)

I have a lot of music on tape cassettes


You will need three things.
1. Cassette player with a mini headphone jack
2. cable with male mini jack at each end. (usually can find at a dollar store.)
3. Audacity (Open Source audio program)

Hook up the cable to your cassette and to the line in on your sound card. Turn volume on cassette player to 3/4 or so.
Download and install Audacity. Press play on the cassette player, press the record button in Audacity. When done press stop, and under the File menu you can Export to an MP3. You can read the Audacity help menu for more options on copying and pasting to create a new file for each track, and for fading in and fading out to get a smoother start and finish to each track.
