I have bought a USB turntable to put all of my old records and tapes onto cd. I am so far unable to get the turntable to be recognised by my computer. I am running XP Home with SP2 . I thought that I had bought a bad machine and was going to take it back to Maplins, but I have tried it on my friends computer which is running his turnable (same make and model) and there is no problem with my turntable.There is no usb software supplied with the machine and I have installed all of the operating software supplied. I understand that it is supposed to be plug and play but I am asked to supply a software location each time I try to do a set up. I have also tried all of the various USB ports that I have on my computer. Can anyone please point me towards a solution to this very annoying problem. I should also say that I have a card reader that is supposed to read 4gig SD cards but I cant get that to work either so am stuck with using 1 gig cards on my camera. I wonder if these problems are connected.??
Some recovery disks use a proprietary format, others are just modified XP discs - take a look for an I386 folder just in case there is one. Otherwise look for an I386 folder on the C: drive, if it's hidden you'll need to set Explorer to show hidden files click here. If it's not there, sometimes pointing the requester to c:\windows\system32 gets rid of them.
Now that the Christmas mad house is over I can once again try to get my new USB turntable to start working. I have tried everything that I know but have failed to get it to work on my computer. It keeps telling me that it is looking for a USB Audio Codec but it cant find one on my computer. Where should it be and where can I get one if my computer does not have one. Can anyone help please.
