I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 lap top. I want to convert my tapes and LPs to CDs. When I plug in the cord to the sound card and start the Music I can not hear it and the software says no sound detected. I have Microsoft Plus and Roxio now loaded and neither one picks up the sound. I hear some noise that appears to be music but its not clear. would you know what I,m doing wrong? Thanks Ken

Hello Ken and welcome to geeks to go!

Make sure you have plugged the cord into the input (microphone) jack. Just checking this commonly overlooked item.

Thanks for your responce, Ax238.
I am plugged into the microphone jack and when I start the Tape playing my Software does not appear to pick it up. I can't here it on the speakers even though I know its playing. The Level Meter does not find a happy level, however the music is getting into the system. I just can't here it so I can't tell when 1 song ends and the next one begins. Is there some way to turn on the speakers while all this is taking place? The sound card is a Sigmatel unit. When I go into the sound controls, they are not muted and all the volume level are up. Needless to say I'm not enjoying the new software.
