Would really appreciate some help. I have a Dell Inspiron 620. I want to record from my record player (which I have done on previous PCs). Have plugged cable in to line-in on PC but not hearing anything. Have downloaded Audacity to record with.

Op system?

open control panel - sounds and audio and change the setting on your sound card for line in

Brilliant. I can now record as a .wav (need to download something called Lame to record as MP3). However, hope you can answer this one, too. I can't hear as it's playing, only the recording, so don't know if I'm quite at the beginning of a track. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Got into properties of my sound card and managed to get it to play sound as well so all sorted!
