Converting Lp's To Digital Format

Question

I've been trying to convert my old long plays into digital format so that I can burn them onto CD's. However, when the Roxio LP and Tape Assistant comes up, I'm choosing the Capture From USB Device (using the cable attachment that came with the software) but the input box only shows "Microphone" with the result that the sound is being recorded through my webcam microphone (I believe) and not direct and all sounds in the room while recording are being picked up.

What do I do?

If your "long plays" are in fact vinyl audio long playing records, why don't you connect your player output to the Mic input on your computer [or the Line In if it matches better] and capture the audio direct with your computer?

 

There doesn't seem to be any benefit in using an extra computer [the USB device] when your ordinary computer can capture audio just as well.

Disable your webcam, when you are trying to capture from the USB device. Or go the route that Brendon suggests.

I've disconnected the webcam as suggested but that doesn't work. I've also tried again the suggestion made by Brendon by I'm not getting any sound. The problem seems to be that the "Capture From" box only shows me an internal card, Sigma TelAudio, and it doesn't seem to be recognizing my turntable. I did connect the cable to the Mic input.

 

With regard to the USB connection, if I disconnect the WebCam as suggested I get "USB" recognition in the "Capture From" box and a "Line In" in the Input Box which doesn't work since I have the red and white cables coming out of the turntable and then the Roxio USB in the computer's USB port.

 

 

Any more suggestions please? Thanks

Your turntable has to plug into a pre-amp then output to the Sound card Line in or through the Roxio USB Capture Device.
