I Can't Capture Audio



I have been successful at capturing video, but now I want to capture audio only from some old cassette tapes. I have a fairly new computer that runs on Vista 64 bit edition (Home Premium). I'm connecting the cassette tape player to the computer using only the audio inputs on the usb capture devise. I'm also using the headphone output on the tape player and have no sound playing on any speakers while attempting the capture. I'm obviously doing something wrong. Nothing is capturing.

Warning...I'm not very technically savvy and have no idea what type of sound card I have, or even have any idea how to find out.

Can anyone help? My 26 year old tape recording of my wedding is aging as time goes by.

So far I don't know if anyone has gotten a preview whilst recording audio only.


All you should have to do is connect the cassette player to the audio ins on the USB device.

Does Easy Audio Capture come up with the USB 2861 device as a choice in the dropdown?

Or if you're using the LP and Tape Assistant does it show up there?

Have you installed SP3?If not it won't work.


There are many threads on here about getting the device to capture audio only.Read through some of them and hopefully you'll find your answer.

You dont need a capture device for audio. Normally you would just plug the tape recorder into the line input of the computer sound card and use the audio capture feature of Roxio. However I'm not sure about using the recorder headphone output. It may overload the line input of the sound card. You really need a line output on the recorder to be compatible.
