Unwanted recording overlays

When recording LP records from my Numark TTUSB turntable using a direct line cable to my iMac G4 and EZVinyl Converter software, I am hearing sounds from the room (doors closing, voices, etc.) on the recordings when I play back on my iTunes library after recording.  I have no microphones hooked up anywhere on this system.  What gives?

    This will sound a little strange, but I don't have a "normal" stereo.  I do have the Audacity software already installed on my computer (part of the EZ Converter disc), but it didn't come with instructions in the operation booklet, nor can I find any information on the operation of the system on the "help" drop down in the program.  I'm mystified how it (the EZ software) can record the sounds in the room while recording the records without any microphones present, plugged in, or operating.

    Hey Ziraffa (not a clue...ggg) the bkfndrstrat is a reference to my 30 year old black on black fender stratacaster.  Anywho, I went to the EZ software and the drop downs in the tool bar were no help at all. There is no tools/option only "file", "edit" and "help" (really no help at all) as it leads you to "Download EZ Vinyl Converter 2" which downloads a file that will not open.

    Why don't you just use a normal jack cable from a normal stereo and plug it into the Line in plug and use a free prog like Audacity to record it?

Hey black fender start person, I'm genuinely sorry for sounding patronising and 'of the applemac-fool-mockery crew'. The needle-on-the-record is acting as a wall mic. I don't know about the ez software, but I'm guessing there are default settings in there somewhere, in tools/options or suchlike.
Have a look at the mic settings you might be able to apply some pleasing preset.
good luck :)

When I go to record or just listen to a vinyl on my Numark TTUSB, there is a background noise, which seems to come from the HD on my PC. Luiz Alberto Gomes Uberlandia - MG - Brazil

Do you mean audible over-the-air noise; or noise entering the recording? HD's make sounds when they seek. Recording uses the HD, so what's the mystery?

Burning a CD

The best way to do it would be to record or rip the record into a media player program.  Create a playlist using the songs then burn the songs to cd.

Playback Problem

They should be recording in mp3.  Then converted into ITunes using AAC.  Itunes will play MP3 format from the turntable.  The best thing to do is to record in that format, then test the files before converting them.  That way you can find out if the problem is with Itunes conversion or the turntable.
