Re: Appears to be installed properly but doesn't record

When you first connect the turntable, Windows XP (and Mac OSX) will often select the "USB Audio Codec" as the audio input and output for your entire system. Since your turntable does not have speakers, audio will not be heard from your programs until you tell Windows not to use the turntable as an output device. Here's how to change these settings so that your internal sound card will always be used for playback whether or not your ION TTUSB is connected via USB:

    For Windows:
  1. On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
  2. Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
  3. In the window that opens, select the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. (If you don't see a choice called "Sounds and Audio Devices," choose the "Switch to Classic View" option in the panel on the left of the window, and the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon should become available in the list on the left.
  4. Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
  5. Under "Sound Playback," choose your internal sound card as the default device. This varies by computer but should not be set to "USB Audio Codec" or "Microsoft Sound Mapper".
  6. Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
  7. Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
  8. Click "Apply"...then "OK".

    For Mac:
  1. Open your Hard Disk.
  2. Open your "Applications" folder.
  3. In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
  4. In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
  5. In the "Audio MIDI Setup" under Audio Devices, set:

    • "Default Input" to "USB Audio Codec"
    • "Default Output" to "Built In Audio"
    • "System Output" to "Built in Audio"

Now, all programs, including Audacity, will only use your internal sound card for audio output.

Seal Turntable - lousy recording!


These cheaply-made turntables only do ONE job and that is to archive your record collection. Not surprised by the fact the record plays great on your normal turntable.

The arms on these turntables have quite a heavy tracking weight to them and you cannot adjust it. My advice to you is if you want to archive vinyl there are plenty of quality HIFI turntables out there that will blow away your Seal turntable. Don't be tempted to put a small coin on the headshell as this will INCREASE the weight and probably damage your record.

A friend of mine has one these awful Seal tables and I think they are pretty bad sound quality, also they go under many different brand names.

New Memorex 9285MMO, loud hissing + ring dig on record

Probably the needle, I work on them and many needles are bad from new. They were put on wrong in the first place. Try taking the red part off and make sure there is a needle part and that its straight.

Need driver for windows to have the Crosley CR249 turntable work correctly.

Insert the enclosed software cd into your computer.
Follow the instructions on the computer screen to install the software. If the software does not load automatically, browse the cd and open the Read Me folder for further instructions.
Connect the small end of the USB to the USB jack on the back of the unit.
Connect the other end to a USB port on your computer.
On your computer open the Record Recording software.
For instructions on operating the Record Recording software, browse the software cd and open the Read Me folder.

I got that from the manual. You don't need a separate USB driver for it, mate, but you DEFINITELY need the cd...

Hoping you have the cd,

Hi, the crosley will no longer record onto any music cdr/rw. It will indicate that the cdr is blank-i know it is- then the zeros/record appears but no recording takes place. thanks if you can help.

I turned it off for two (2) hours - turned it on and it worked. Apparently this unit overheats after one session: one (1) cd-r per session then shut-down.
It is worth it, when it works, because my lps have no hiss when finalized.
