Hi. I have a piece of audio on cassette tape that I want to email to someone. So I want to record it using my PC - nothing fancy, doesn’t need to be high-end hi-fi quality. I plan to use the cable connecting my PC to the ‘line in’ socket of my monitor. I’ve switched the jack from the green socket of the PC to the blue socket (which should be ‘line in’ right?). And I’ve taken the jack from my monitor and plugged it into the headphone socket of my portable cassette player.
As far as I know, there should now be a signal going from the cassette player into the sound card? Unfortunately, the two sound recorders I’ve tried (Audacity and Arial) have completely blank spaces when I click on ‘select input device’.
Can anyone tell me where I’m going wrong? Thanks in advance.
