Once adjusted to the correct weight for the type of cartridge then the arm should only jump on a bad record. If it keeps on jumping then either there is something wrong with the platter, being warped or a bad matt. Or there is something in the mechanism that is causing the jumps. Either of these two causes is possible if it does it in the same position on two different records.
The needle skipping is caused by (A) a worn stylus. (B) not enough pressure. Which is solved by adjusting the weight on the end of the arm. It can only really be solved by trial and error. You increase the weight slightly, then play the record. You keep doing this till the record stays in the grooves but doesn't make a rumble sound. If it starts to rumble reduce the weight.
You could try increasing the weight at the end of the turntable arm. It will be a question of trial and error. Trying a record to see if it stops, but putting to much weight will make the sound rumble.
First however check to see if there's something on the arm somewhere that makes the record jump. Could be anything: muck, a pin, or a wire.
Your cd player is fubar and in definite need of replacement.
Tape unit seems to have a mind of its won. Try to reset the electronics to factory defaults. If that has no remedy, since it is a sony< best advise is to trash it. Repair cost is prohibitively expensive.

And so you know, you should max your ram out with that soundcard. or have everyone record there parts in as, 5 ins is alot for a machine to process, especially if youre recording to 1 track..brutal, and the final recording will be real muddy.
