Re: USB Device Not Recognized
Uninstall driver then turn off the PC then unplug the power cord from power socket, short its legs then leave it unconnected for 5min, then reconnect it to power socket and turn on PC and install driver it should work :)

When you first connect the turntable, Windows XP (and Mac OSX) will often select the "USB Audio Codec" as the audio input and output for your entire system. Since your turntable does not have speakers, audio will not be heard from your programs until you tell Windows not to use the turntable as an output device. Here's how to change these settings so that your internal sound card will always be used for playback whether or not your ION TTUSB is connected via USB: For Windows:
On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
In the window that opens, select the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. (If you don't see a choice called "Sounds and Audio Devices," choose the "Switch to Classic View" option in the panel on the left of the window, and the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon should become available in the list on the left.
Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
Under "Sound Playback," choose your internal sound card as the default device. This varies by computer but should not be set to "USB Audio Codec" or "Microsoft Sound Mapper".
Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
Click "Apply"...then "OK".
Open your Hard Disk.
Open your "Applications" folder.
In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
In the "Audio MIDI Setup" under Audio Devices, set:
"Default Input" to "USB Audio Codec"
"Default Output" to "Built In Audio"
"System Output" to "Built in Audio"
Now, all programs, including Audacity, will only use your internal sound card for audio output.
You have to listen through the Audacity software. Once you start Audacity, click on the down-arrow on the toolbar next to the microphone symbol and choose Monitor Input. You will need to do this every time you start Audacity.
Make sure the correct source is selected for sound in audio properties (Right click the volume icon near the clock). The device must be the turntable driver.
Make sure you have installed the Numark software BEFORE you plugged in the turntable to your computer for the first time.
If you have done the faux pas above, all the installs in the world will not fix it. You MUST remove the USB driver. Use Device Manager. In XP, this is found by right clicking my computer and selecting properties. In properties select the hardware tab and choose 'Device Manager'.
Stop here. If you have no idea what I wrote, review 'Device Manager' on the Windows Website or ask a KNOWLEDGABLE friend for help. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123.
Now, select the USB device, while it is plugged in to the USB port, and right click. Select 'Uninstall'. Remove your USB device when device manager is done.
Close Device manager and all the other windows. Start your USB install from scratch, without the USB plugged in until the install asks or completes. I have ALWAYS had successful installs with this method.
Hi, Insert the enclosed software cd into your computer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to install the software. If the software does not load automatically, browse the cd and open the Read Me folder for further instructions. Connect the small end of the USB to the USB jack on the back of the unit. Connect the other end to a USB port on your computer. On your computer open the Record Recording software. For instructions on operating the Record Recording software, browse the software cd and open the Read Me folder.
I got that from the manual. You don't need a separate USB driver for it, mate, but you DEFINITELY need the cd...
I received an updated driver from Numark but that still did not solve my problem. It turned out to be some sort of incompatability with my USB 2 card. When I plugged the turntable into my old USB 1 slot, my computer recognized it immediately. The new Audacity and MixMeister programs that were sent as a fix from Numark are just burning programs and not drivers for the device. I can now convert my old vinyl with ease.
with everything plugged and running go to preferences in FILE and set Recording Device and channels to Audio device USB in Audio I/O.Tick software playthrough.
now set the microphone box to Stereo mix on the home screen(box is left of small scissors) hope this helps.nigel.
