Need Adaptor connect DJ Tech Turntable to Sony Mini Hi Fi MHCRG495

I have purchased a DJ Tech Direct Drive USB Turntable for transferring my vinyl LP's into CDs. I want to hook it up with my Sony Mini Hi Fi MHCRG495 enroute to my Mac G4 so I can use the three stereo speakers.
Do you know what kind of adaptor I need ? I was looking at an RCA Scart Plug Adaptor but wasn't sure if that was the right thing to buy.

    Sorry for the delay with my response. Your suggestion has worked well. Will soon be attempting my first trial at creating good quality CDs from LP vinyls. Thanks for your support, much appreciated.

The USB turntable is likely a USB data connection and not a USB audio connection, so you will need to take the audio output from your Mac G4 to your Sony Mini Hi Fi...

You will likely need a stereo mini-plug (3.5mm or 1/8-inch) to stereo RCA plug cable (red and white RCA plugs). This is often referred to as a "stereo Y-cable."

You can solve this problem by purchasing a PS/2 to USB adaptor which you should be able to find for $1 at most tech shops, however it is advised to purchase a new USB Mouse as they function much better with these new computers than the old PS/2 mice.

Lots of advise on the web with various solutions, You can use a 1/8 jack to 1/8 jack or an adapter depending on the size of the amp jack. Some sites don't recommend this, but if you make sure your sound levels are low (PC and Input source)to start you won't blow anything. Some set ups don't need your stereo at all and software is available at various prices and quality. Check out reviews. Depending on your current set up and turntable you may need a preamp, newer ones are built in. You can get USB equipment like turntable with usb and RCA inputs to make it a little easier and 1/8 line in jack to connect other equipment like a tape player(about $100.00). Be cautious about the software, lots make promises that they can't keep. Cheap is as cheap gets. EZVinyl converter and ITunes is troublesome, Audacity is complex for advanced users. Try LPRIPPER.COM its expensive but I've heard good things and you can download a trial. Lots of How to sites can be Googled. Read a few, they all don't always consider everything you might find useful.

Have just purchased a USB 2.0 to SATA HDD Adaptor made by Nikkai from Maplin. Have connected everything okay with my old HDD but when I go to run the 'Driver & User Manual' disc it just tells me it a...

Most of these adapters don't need windows drivers EXCEPT for use on a '98 system.

Got to the disk management console & see if your USB drive is there. It may simply need to have a drive letter assigned for you to see it in My Computer.

The path to the disk management console is usually: %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc /s

Paste that into Start/Run.

I am attempting to convert a vhs tape to dvd. I have purchased a converter and cable to connect with computer via USB all seems OK cannot find if or where it transfers

You probably need some sort of media player or something that will allow your vcr to play the tapes through the computer and will allow you to save it in some type of format such as windows media player or something. After that you should be able to transfer it to DVD with a program such as roxio. To see if your computer is detecting your vcr hook it up go to my computer and look for a new storage device.
