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

I have vcr tape wont play in hifi all the time. and dose same thing in every vcr but has no other audio track


The hi-fi sound goes first. There is nothing you can do about it. Unless some special recording techniques were used, you always have a linear sound track too. Try to adjust TRACKING on the remote to hook up to the hi-fi track.

What do L & R mean on the onscreen display?


The Left and Right Hi-Fi audio channels. It's saying it's detected hi-fi sound on the video tape if one is playing or it will record in hi-fi sound. If they go away then you are probably watching an old tape before hi-fi sound came in. Though they will also go if the main head is dirty. As the hi-fi sound pick up heads are on that.

The sound on my Panasonic pv-4611 fades in and out while watching tapes. Doesn't matter whether they are factory or recorded ones by myself. Why?


This sounds like the Hi-Fi sound dropping out. It's mostly caused by dirt on the main video head. You need to clean it with either Servisol Video 40 or a head cleaning tape.

It means that it is adjusting the sound from mono to hi'fi... probably because the tape is dirty/damaged or (more likely) the unit needs to be seriously cleaned. Try a cleaning tape, and if that doesnt work have a shop clean it.

Can hear crackling or spitting sound when selecting HI-FI


The "crackling" sound you describe sounds suspiciously like mis-tracking. That is: The result of the Hi-Fi heads (which are on the rotating video headwheel or drum) not exactly following the recorded tracks. Have you tried adjusting the tracking slightly? The reason this happens is that the Hi-Fi tracks are MUCH narrower than the thinnest video track (used for 6 hours per T120 tape). Tape stretches and shrinks as it ages. Video recorders wear with normal use in such a way that the tracking changes. The problem is often worse with tapes recorded at the SLP (6 hour) speed because the servo cannot correct errors as fast when the tape is moving slowly (on some machines only). Tape quality also counts...and manufacturers change their formulations without public notice. All these things can lead to "archived" tapes being lost. Solution: Use the best quality tape you can afford, not the cheapest; record at the highest possible speed. Store the tape carefully. Never use a cheap "rewinder" because they can over-tighten the tape causing wrinkles, stretches, and other kinds of damage.
