Can record on my computer but cannot hear what I am recording. I have tapes that I am trying to transfer my cassettes to digital audio. I have a stereo audio cable. I plugged one end into the computer mic/line in input. The other end I plug into my tape player. I can record the audio, but I cannot hear the music as it is input and recorded. I was on the phone with Dell for 2 hours and they told me that there was nothing more that they could do for me. Any ideas?

If you have a dual cassette deck, then one deck will only play cassettes,whilst the other will have a record facility as well.
Basically you need to place the original cassette in the play only deck and the target cassette in the record/play deck.
Start the playback in the play only deck and immediately press the record and play buttons together on the record deck. Some decks have high speed dubbing but this varies so much that you will need to consult your manual for this.
The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment. When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.
your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary
Generally speaking yes. You could take the audio outputs from the tape deck and plug them into the audio inputs for any line in the DVD recorder. Then press record. Finalize it once your done.
A more professional way to do it is to record them back into a computer. If you have Windows Plus! Digital Media Edition installed into your computer, there is an analog recorder installed. All you have to do is plug the audio output of the tape deck into the microphone jack of your computer. Then it will convert them to mp3 format. That way you can use Windows Media Player to burn the CD with by creating a playlist. If you have Windows XP and you need Plus! it should be available at any computer store for around $20.00. Wome versions of Vista may have this feature included into the operating system as well.
the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.
