Appears to be installed properly but doesn't record
Software appears to be installed correctly, turntable appears to work, but when trying to record the meters do not respond and no recording seems to be occuring.
I have the same problem. I have intstalled the software, the turntable appears to be working fine but there is no signal to the meters. I have tried different usb ports, plugged and unplugged all connections, and rebooted the computer to no avail. I have windows XP

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:
On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
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.
Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
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".
Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
Click "Apply"...then "OK".
Open your Hard Disk.
Open your "Applications" folder.
In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
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.

it will be the turntable speed not exact
quality turntables have bars all around the circumference and when the speed is correct under a fluro light those bars will appear as stationary or using a strobe light set at 50 or 60 cycles a sec
bars going anticlockwise are too fast and moving forward are too slow
quality tables have a small knob or screw to adjust motor speed
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.
Hi, 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...
Turntable signal problems are difficult to locate because of the extremely low signal levels. Are you sure that you have the output of the turntable connected to a Phono input? If connected to a standard AUX or Tape input, you won't hear anything. Check for signal by turning on the unit and touching lightly the needle. You should hear a scratching sound. If not, start with a new needle.
with everything plugged and running go to preferences in FILE and set Recording Device and channels to Audio device USB in Audio I/O.Tick software playthrough.
now set the microphone box to Stereo mix on the home screen(box is left of small scissors) hope this helps.nigel.
