Best way is to connect a stereo lead (you say you're using the RCA connectors) from the player - these should go into a 3.5 mm stereo jack plug in the 'Line In' socket on the PC.

 

Do NOT connect it to the microphone

 

Experiment at first with windows recorder to set the volume level from the player and then import the tracks

No dont get me wrong i am not upset with Roxio at all,,

i thought this place was in some way monitored by Roxio,but from what i have read

is that most of the SMARTYPANTS (j/k) here are just "USERS" like us.

But i did find another program that i sampled and i had no problems what so ever,,

and i have changed nothing in my way of recording and all sounds cyrstal

clear, well as clear as a tape can sound.

Agian thanks for all the input on this matter and yes i still have the program,,,,, :rolleyes:

It's entirely possible that the other program is doing some sort of automatic level setting. I don't know anything about the "Red Box" version of Easy CD and DVD Burning, so I can't suggest what options it may have for that. Personally, I like to do my level setting manually, which you should be able to do with the mixer controls for your sound card. Digital recording is very unforgiving if you record too loud. On a cassette tape, there's "headroom" before it starts to clip, and then clipping is usually "soft". In the digital world, clipping is hard, and there's no headroom beyond the max level.

 

Good luck with your other application.

Can Close this thread....returned software,,

thanks anyways..... :angry:

Okay... I finally got a look at your sample, and it's so badly clipped that it's obvious why it sounds so bad. Either the input to your sound card was overloading the input circuit (and it looks like there's a DC offset on one channel) or the recording level was too loud so the D/A converters could do nothing but clip the sound. So, it's not a problem with the software. No need to be upset with Roxio at this point.
