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?

Yes you need to format in order to have compatibility...

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hi my traxdata cd900 recorder has just developed a problem. Ive been using maxell cdr's most were fine but lately:- a) optical failure error occasionally occurs b) will happily record approx 15 mins...


First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3


Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.

My RX V640 is 5 years old..no problems...no changes to the configuration. when I use to the DTV/Cable setting HDTV..video feed...stereo sound etc is fine. Lately when I try the DVD setting to record TV to...


theb best way to do this is to connect the DVR to the vhs unit and the vhs unit to the tv using red white and yellow for both connections. usually composite video 1,2,3 or 4. DO NOT involve the AVR at all, as it will cause your video and audio to be out of sync.The video will not be as sharp, until you play it threw an up-converting dvd or AVR.

Does this recorder have its own amplifier?


Sure, the tape will play.

Copying tapes does not require an external amp, but LISTENING to them might. The A-4010 has a headphone jack so you're good to go with headphones alone if necessary.

To record, Connect the Output from the new deck to any Line Level Input on your recording device - (NOT PHONO).

If you can, set your record levels up in advance being careful not to have them too high if you're going digital as overloads are not handled well.

As with any old, rare or prized open-reel recording, avoid excessive transport handling of the tape, especially rewinding at high speed. Get yourself some Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol and clean the deck carefully, especially the capstan and idler wheel. Cheat the two tension levers manually and press Play. The capstan will engage the rubber idler. Clean the roller first with a moist Q-tip, being careful not to get strands caught up in the capstan (I'd hold the Q-tip around the 3-o'clock position on the idler), until you get nothing but a little black from it on a clean moist Q-tip. Then press Pause and the roller will retract but the capstan will still spin. Clean it with a fresh wet Q-tip until it is shiny and no more color comes off it.

Handle the reel without placing any inward pressure on the flanges as edge damage can occur.

Make your best stab at a transfer in as few tries as possible as the tape oxide and base are very old and will not tolerate repeated playbacks. Run the tape completely in one direction, flip it over, CLEAN THE DECK AGAIN, and play it back in the other direction (avoiding REWIND as it places a lot of stress on the tape and will probably leave the tape wound unevenly with edges sticking out all over the place. A normal speed playback should wrap the tape nice and tight and even for storage. Avoid exposing the tape to high humidity, dust or heat.

If you have access to a CD Recorder, I recommend making a full resolution Master copy on it and using the digital copy for any subsequent copying, ripping, editting, etc. Archive the original tape and make a digital copy of your end results, too. Good luck.

I'll make this offer to you. If you get it digitized and onto a CD I can probably reprocess it to clean up tape hiss and other problems inherent in 70's-era taping. Analog tape recording was my passion and still is, but I save everything digitally now.

LG DR6921W DVD Recorder. Unit will not recognise DVD discs (Blank or commercially recorded)but will recognise and play audio CD's. Unit is 3 years old.


That is most common problem of DVD player recorder,when getting old cannot read DVD discs,only video cd and audio cd,sometimes does'nt read video cd also. The problem is in inside of the unit the DVD processor is defected already or maybe the solder is crack, need to resolder again or reheat the processor solder, or that processor change with a new one,so the performance will back again,good as new.The lense of that unit is good,i can assure that.

New receiver....old CD, record and tape players


Most new recievers don't have a "phono" input. If your record player is an older kind without a built in preamp, you will need to purchase a Phono pre-amp (about $25) and then you can use any input you wish.
