Id guess you need to have your usb device set for input not realtek.Which version of Audacity are you using and Lame is only needed if you are going to save as Mp3

Using Audacity 1.2.6 i need to record the records to go to my media player i think i used lame last time . When i try to record there is only a straight line no peaks or troughs in graph.

"please note oap so not too good on computers " Oi, are you casting aspersions on the rest of us here trying to help? (that's a jokey comment) there's a awful lot of us on here supposedly past our sell by date ;-) and between us we all muddle through so you're in good company.

Have a read of the thread in Speakers Corner 'Are you old enough to remember?' it's about what you were doing when you heard the news that the King was dead 60 years ago.

Ok lets stick with the input prob if you go edit >preferences Then uner the I/O tab do you have your USB device selected for recording if not is it availble in the drop down box .Even more can you hear anything from the usb in any programme

OK i now have it working i have to use Microsoft Soundmapper input and output Wiki.adacityteam.org say not to use it so maybe i am not useing Audacity Beta . ? So on to the next stage record and see if i can remember how to export it to Media Player .(i am only sixty nine and do not remember the King dieing but do remember the party for the new Queen )

Next step have made recording tryed exporting to wave = file export as wave but it has now placed one track over an other so it plays two tracks . What is the best way to tranfer tracks from Audacity to my media player .

Whilst wav is the better mp3 is usually adequate .When you export it only means save .I would create a folder first and export to that. Then import to your player If by track do you mean the complete album ie not the LP split into seperate tracks not quite sure what you mean on top of the other track.
