Using Audacity 3.3 to record from old audio tape, All played ok until tried to Export it to a CD or DVD. I then downloaded essential MP3 decoder & ok. BUT when I exported it to either CD or DVD it copied my 21minute file OK in 2 minutes, but said that CD [& DVD]would not accept it. Do I need format CD or DVD before export it in MP3? Or do I need export it in a .WAV etc format?

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!

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.)

It says wait while trying to view recordings through voice manager, but it's never done waiting. Also the f drive states the device is not ready


Your best bet is to play the recordings through the headphone connector to a pc audio line-in connector and capture the audio using something like Audacity. Then output them using audacity to mp3 to play on your mp3 player.

These units are notorious for their failing USB feature.

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3


It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.

Copy audio tapes to CD's


Hello Trevor,

Easiest way I can think of is as follows:
1. Connect the "phones" of your cassette player to the "Line in" of your PC. Line In is coloured blue, you will need a a 3.5" to 3.5" male audio cable.
2. Next, install some sound capturing program on your computer. I can recommend Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
3. Start the cassette player, check the volume levels, do some short test records. Once you are satisfied with the result, rewind and record side A of the cassette, then side B. Using again Audacity, you can cut the desired parts of the record and save them in the format and quality you like, I guess *.mp3.
4. Burn the files to a CD. You can use CD Burner XP Pro: http://cdburnerxp.se/

I hope that I have been very helpful. :)

How to record from Casset tape to CD disk? Thank you !


You can do this with your PC. Download a program called Audacity. It's free. With it, you can record audio from your Line IN connector. You'll need to connect your cassette player to the Line in on your PC. Start Audacity, set it to record and play your tape.

If you want to save the files as a .mp3, you'll also need to download the LAME mp3 encoder. In any case, when you have the file recorded, export it as a .mp3 or .wav and then use your CD burning program to create the CD.

I have a lot of music on tape cassettes


You will need three things.
1. Cassette player with a mini headphone jack
2. cable with male mini jack at each end. (usually can find at a dollar store.)
3. Audacity (Open Source audio program)

Hook up the cable to your cassette and to the line in on your sound card. Turn volume on cassette player to 3/4 or so.
Download and install Audacity. Press play on the cassette player, press the record button in Audacity. When done press stop, and under the File menu you can Export to an MP3. You can read the Audacity help menu for more options on copying and pasting to create a new file for each track, and for fading in and fading out to get a smoother start and finish to each track.

No sound coming through when recording from hi fi tape to computer


This is actually simple to do. Connect the line out on your tape player to the line in on your computer. Then download a free program, from the net called Audacity at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. The program is totally free and works great. Some recording studios use this program. In the middle of the main Window on Audacity set it to record from Line in. This is from the small drop down menu next to the little microphone icon. Then hit the record button on Audacity and play your tape. You can record each song individually or you can record the whole side of the tape at once and separate the tracks when you save them. You can even use this program to clean up the sound on your recordings. I have transferred many of my tapes and records to CD using this process. I hope I have been helpful and good luck
