Is there a program out there that will convert my old cassette tapes or vinyl...


The short answer is yes. There is a program out there that will record cassette tapes or vinyl records to CD. Today, I will show you how. If you have the right software and the right cords, getting your cassettes and Vinyl onto your computer, then onto CDs, is a pretty easy task. Just follow the steps below and you will be on your way to bringing your audio into the 21st century! What you need: To make the conversion, you will need a (free) audio recording program, a tape or record player and a cord to connect the device to your computer. Here's a breakdown:
1. Audacity. This is the program that will record your audio to your computer.
2. LAME-encoder. This is a file that will convert your audio to MP3.
3. A record player or cassette player. Hopefully you already have one of these.
4. A cord to connect the player to your computer.


The first step is to install Audacity and LAME,
Now that we have the software installed, we can look at connecting your tape player, or record player, to your computer.
Your player will have one of two types of outputs. You will either have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, or RCA audio output jacks.
If your device has RCA outputs (left image)to connect to your computer.
If your device has a 3.5mm jack (right image) to connect to your computer.
The other end of the cable will connect to the line in jack on your computer

Now that we have the software installed and the cassette/record player connected to the computer, let's record something!
Put a cassette or LP into your player. Get the player to the place where you want to start recording and pause or stop the player.
Now, let's stop messing with all this hardware and get the computer set up. First, go to your control panel and open your audio settings.
In XP, go to the audio tab and click "volume" under sound recording. Place a check next to "line in". If you don't see a "line in" option go to options and click advanced. Place a check next to "line in" there.
In Vista/7 go to the recording tab. find your line in, select it then choose "set default". Click on "properties", go to the levels tab and turn up the level to 80 or 100. (This varies depending on what you are recording so you may need to adjust this to get it right).
As you can see, Audacity is pretty much a more advanced sound recorder. To begin recording, press the play button on your record/cassette player then click the red "record" circle on audacity. You are now recording to your computer! When you are done, click stop on audacity and press stop on your player.
After recording, you can now export your audio as an MP3. Go to the file menu and click "Export as MP3". You can now choose the name of the file and save to wherever you want. You are done recording!

Which color is the input jack for recording


On the front panel, the audio jack on the left side when looking at the front of the computer is the mic jack. On the back, look for the pink jack in the audio panel area. This is the mic. I included a picture of it below.

My Dell Dimension E510 cannot pick up any voice recording from my various mic inputs. I have fiddled with volumes of each respective input (line in, rear mic, mic jack) to no avail, and when I try to use...


This sounds like you have a voice morphing program installed. A morph program is useful for distorting your voice and special effects, but it also takes over your mic controls. Go to the control panel and choose sounds and audio devices, then look for the default device under sound recording and make sure your record device is the same model as your sound device and that it says INPUT. Another problem occurs if you right click your little sound/audio icon on the taskbar and choose open volume control then left click. Do that now and choose, options, then properties. Now on mixer device, choose one that says input. The white window on the bottom of that panel will show you several devices, check mark them all and click ok. Now manually select MIC as your default sound input device and close then try again.

Do I have to plug the jack at the end of the mic cord to an adapter or does it go directly into the computer?


If this mic is designed for a computer, it will plug directly into the computer mic jack. If it is a standard mic that is used for professional recording, you may have to have an adapter to go from 8mm plug down to the 2mm plug.

I cant record with my microphone


Sometimes you may need to plug the jack into the back of the computer.
It also depends what audio you're using. Digital and analogue don't mesh. I have to keep switching my Realtek between the both.
Or another option may be to update your DirectX.
Or your mic is busted, can you try it on another computer?

I can not use my computer microphone for live talk my computer acer aspire 5570z, other person to whom I talk can not hear my voice


Make sure the microphone jack plugged into the right jack socket
and that the microphone is plugged into the socket at the front of the pc.

In WinXP go to Control Panel\Sounds and Audio\Voice\Test hardware, this will test your mic by recording from it and playing it back.

If you are using a sound card go through the software setting.

Delete all messages in you Outbox.
Go to Tools, Accounts and delete whatever Windstream account you have in there.

Start all over setting up your Windstream account.

Here's a link on how to do it.

Print it out so that you can refer to it while setting up your account.

Sometimes a visual helps.
