Which input have you selected on audacity

Also have you got playthrough software turned on if so try it off

Im assuming the ion is pligged in through a USB socket. I have used USB sound cards with XP - don't know about Vista - and they don't usually have a volume control. once you've recorded, select all the music (ctrl+A) and use effects, normalise.

unless the volume is VERY low, this'll be OK.

cribbed this from the Audacity site which might help

"The ION USB turntables have a gain control to manage the output level of the signal. I would guess that ION are using very similar electronics and thet therefore you could possibly have a gain control on the tape deck. On the TT it is "hidden" in an awkward place - have a good look at your deck and read the manual. (Update: I just had a look on ION's t'interweb site - and looks like you have a big control on the front labelled "Record Level" - looks like the gain control to me.)"
