I have an old Grundig tape recorder (1960's) which I wish to
connect to an external tuner to transfer the recordings to my computer. It has
Din plugs with symbols on them, but I don't remember what they stand for! Can
you help? One symbol is a double wavy line, like '' = '', but wavy. Another
symbol is a square with the right hand edge protruding beyond the edge top and
bottom, like a square '' d '' without the long upstroke. Another symbol is like a
'' Q '' but reversed right to left. I hope you can help! Thanks very much. Bill

on laptop, ensure the following: 1. go to Volume control (look for icon on system tray). 2. under Options tab select Properties. 3. under Adjust volume for recording option, ensure that microphone is is check-boxed if no luck, borrow a second amp and connect your L/R jacks (red and white colour) to the borrowed amps line in jacks and test whether you hear anything to confirm your line out capability.

I've had this happen before, and it is caused by your ground wire not being hooked up. Depending on the type and age of turntable, it will have an additional wire (the ground), that needs to be hooked up to either a screw or some sort of opening similar to your speaker wire hookup. That should take care of the problem. If you don't have a ground wire coming out of your turntable, I don't know how to help, other than figure out how to ground the turntable.

All you need to get them to play is a "dock" and a 3.5mm Jack to two RCA phono plugs lead.
The Jack goes into the headphone output and the RCA's go into any spare socket on the back of the unit IE tape/cd.
Infact you just need the lead, plug it into the headphone output of the Ipod or MP3 player. But the dock will keep the battery charged and you get a remote with the dock, so you don't need to get out of your chair, to operate the player.

All you need to do is connect two RCA plugs into the audio in of your laptop. The two RCA's go into a tape out of the recevier. If your laptop uses 3.5mm plugs for audio conections then get a 3.5mm plug to RCA plugs. See image below.
To record the music and convert it I would get Magix Audio Cleaning Lab, which you can pick up cheap on Amazon.
The sound will then come out of your speakers on your computer and then you can record it with Magix and convert it with the software to any audio format.

Testimonial: "This gives wonderfully detailed info with pictures, which a girl like me needs. Will the sound that comes off my recorded CDs, using this method, sound as perfect as playing the original albums directly on the turntable? Thanks so much!"
