Hello I have been using Audacity for tranferring Cassette Tapes to my Pc for several months with varying degrees of success. I have now come up against a problem whereby I record onto Audacity then export as MP3. This is then transferred to MY MUSIC but when I put it onto Windows Media Player it does not play, the counter is running but no sound. Any ideas please in words of one syllable as I am 78 and have permanent "Senior Moments " Many thanks Don. Please excuse any mistakes as I am almost blind.
Yes I don't seem to have any other problems. I clicked NEW on Audacity then switched tape on and pressed tecord on Audacity. When it was finished I clicked on Export to MP3 and it ahowed that happening, then I saved it to my MUSIC and there it waits. I tried it in my Media Player and it comes up on Play Pane, counter starts but no sound. Has me beaten. It is also in my Media Player Library
Hi eedcam No that's a point, it doesn't play in Audacity Maybe that is the problem although when I exported as MP3 it went through all the motions and then it (?) ended up in MY MUSIC and also WMP Library. Just noticed something which may be relevant. In thr listinngs in MY MUSIC there are two enties one says 1KB BAK File and the other 1KB Audacity Project does this make sense now > Thanks Don
Hi Calonlan when you chose export to mp3 the dialogue box that opened would have said save file as mp3 then you choose where to save it . . I think you may have saved as a project or something and they wont play .Bak is a backupfile .I would try a search for your mp3 file ie search>music and either its name or just mp3 and see if you can locate it . Alternately open audacity go file>recent files and see if youhave the file there probably with extension aup.If so open that and export again as mp3 it again as mp3 whenyou ok the save it willtellyou if the same file already exists and where it is
