    I got my Ion TTUSB a few days ago. I really get irritated when the box says how easy it is to set up and do what it is supposed to, only to find out there are major issues.

    I installed EZ Vinyl Converter, Audacity, and iTunes onto my DELL PC. The turntable turns, the software gets me to the "Record" screen, but there is no sound coming from my speakers. The needle is hitting the vinyl, because I can hear the music a bit. When the record is playing, and I've done what was needed to start a recording, there is no sign of any activity on the screen - no ticking off from any monitoring devise whatsoever.

    I uninstalled the software and reinstalled. I checked a different USB cable, I even switched out my speakers - still, sound! I contacted the business that sold me the equipment and they said I could bring in the turntable and connect it there to check it out, because they didn't want to charge me for a visit only to find out it was either an easy fix or something they couldn't fix.

    So, with all of that being said...can you please help me get sound out of my vinyl and have my screen show signs that an actual recording is taking place?

    I would be very grateful if you could - and - my husband would quit hounding me about how much time I'm spending on this project.

    i have the same problem. I hooked up the usb torntable according to the instructions and heard nothing from the speakers. I turned off the turntable and now have no sound at all from my computer. No music , video sound at all. I cannot figure out why. My son is so mad that i 'messed up' the computer. The instruction are so 'simple' they say, only 10 easy steps. I followed them exactly.
    I'm sure i'm not the only one to have this problem. These USB turntable are the big rage this Christmas.

    I also have this problem. Not sure how more specific we can be. I've hooked the turntable up to the computer, recorded a record (45rpm) following the instructions, the file transferred to the PC with all of the correct information (song length,etc.) but when I try to play the song no sound comes thru the speakers. I've tried via both Windows Media Player and iTunes. The file appears to be working, the elapsed time of the song and the status bar move as if the song were playing, but there is no sound. Any help would be great!! I have tried both EZ Vinyl Converter and Audacity software with the same results.

    I can touch the cartridge and sound comes from the speakers but the needle won't pick up the music. I'm not hooked up to a computer just a stereo. I feel like the problem has to do with needle placement in the cartridge.

    Thank you.

    I recently replaced a cartridge and i don't know if the wiring(four wires: white, green, blue and red) is correct.

You need to be more specific. You can't just say I get no sound. You have to tell us what it is you are doing, or not doing. So that we know what you are connecting to (PC, Receiver, DJ Mixer, etc)? The more information the better we'll be able to help you.

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B

The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.


  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.

  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

Sony DAV-DZ560 Can I use a record deck and put it through the surround sound to play vinyl's

Shouldn't be a problem as long as you get a record player with a built-in preamp. Old record players did not have a preamp, and will not output a signal at a high enough level to be used through the sony system.

Hi. I have a Crosley CR40 mini turntable. When I turn on the power, the vinyl spins but when the needle is placed on the vinyl, the vinyl doesnt move anymore while the spinner underneath it is still...

It sounds like you have too much pressure on the tone arm. Check the underside for springs. You might be able to remedy the problem the old fashioned way. Tape a coin onto the top of the tone arm, as far to the rear as possible. This will eliminate some of the downward pressure onto the record.

I have the gemini vinyl 2 mp3 professional usb turntable and it is hooked up to my computer and the software is installed. I can't hear the music through the computer and I can't record the sound. Help?

Look in your control panel on your computer and check the sound settings. For instance I have Sound Max on my PC and the imputs have to be set on to listen to different sound sources. Also there are level controls on it that can be set to zero.

Where can I get an old vinyl recording repaired and converted

yes it can be done i have done this many time for many people... you will need to find someone who knows what they are doing with delecate vinyl... you could either locate a specialist on the web who will be able to take the track off the record and remaster it before it goes on the cd taking out all the clicks and cracks sounds and any imperfections in the sound caused by the damaged vinyl. this option could be expensive. Just type "vinyl to cd services" in google and the search should yeal what you are looking for.


you could ask any good dj/bedroom dj you know or a friend might know to do it for you, as any good dj will know how to treat a damaged record and will certainly be able to transfer on to cd for you. although... depending on the dj's skill level he may not be able to remove any click sounds or audible imperfections? throw him a tenner and supply the cd im sure he will be happy to help!
