Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Yes, it is possible. The Cambridge CD4 deck would be an external signal source of the sound card of the computer. Basically, the R/L Audio OUTPUT of the deck would be connected to the AUX or LINE IN of the PC. A RCA to stereo 3.5mm plug would be needed similar to what is shown below.

Thereafter, enable the AUX/LINE IN in both playback and recording modes of the Volume Control Properties.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

What is wrong with my CD player?


Great player. Although the manual does not say a thing about this error, I'll try.
I think you use normal CD's and not disks you or someone burned for you.
The only thing I can think of is the CD must be dirty to scratched.
Or if you try to play disks, burned in a PC, that could cause trouble too. Although all CD and DVD burners in a PC, can play these disks, not all CD players can. Only the ones where the manufacturer says the drive is compatible with CD-R and or CD-RW.
A normal CD has metal as a reflector and gives a clear image from the ones and zeros on the disk. CD-R and CD-RV only have a dye on which a laser has changed the colour. Not giving a clear distinction between ones and zeros. The better CD players, have a stable motor and so on, but the laser is not set up for the dye disks. And although sometimes a disk can be played, for the player it looks lie a "dirty" disk.
I hope this helps.
If not, perhaps you should clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. DONT open the player and DONT touch the laser.

Cd not able to play last few tracks knocking sounds


CD Mechanism is possibly faulty. Sometimes won't track the outside of the disc properly. Try other CD's of about the same playing time, if more than 1 disc does it, the fault is usually the mechanism. (If the disc is a lot longer than the standard max CD length 0f 74 minutes, some players may have a problem with them. This was usually with older generation players, so may not be applicable here.)

Discs stuck inside CD Player. Screen says ''Reading.''


Try resetting the CD (Cambridge soundworks) by unplugging, then repluging. Then hold down the eject button while you turn on the power.

Deck A will not play/Deck B OK


Sounds like the CDR deck has an issue. When the disc comes out has it's position changed i.e has it been spun at all? Can you hear any motors moving? Does it work with any type of disc ( cd/cdr/cdrw)?
