NEED operators manual for ITRR-501 retro 5 in 1. lost mamual. NEED TO KNOW how to record to CD Disc. Also will it record fro records to disc and record cassett to disk. PLEASE SEND me a manual. OR a zerox...

The unit will record to CD from the turntable, cassette or the AUX port. Place a blank CD-R or CD-RW in the CD tray. (Note: CD-RW discs may not play on other CD players.) Press the Phono, Tape or Aux button to select your audio source for recording. (For Aux, you will need to connect the source device to the AUX port in the back of the ITRR-501.) Wait for the CD disc to load and check for any indicator lights (you should see the "NO TOC" and "CD" or "CD-RW" lights lit). Select your Track increment (or Auto Manual for unattended track formation).Press Record button and the up arrow to adjust the recording level.

If you are recording from an LP, put the tone arm down on the record. For all sources, press Play. Press Stop to end recording or Pause to temporarily break the recording. Press the Track Increment button to advance the track number if you are doing so.

To finalize your CD-R to make it readable on all players: after stopping the recording, press the Finalize button.

The manuals for Innovative Technology products are available here: . The products are listed in alphabetical order. The direct link to the ITRR-501 manual in English is .

I hope this helps.

How to record a cassette tape to a cd

Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.

First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

CD recorder keeps stopping during recording
