Windows 7: Where To Put iTunes

Audio Card, ENM232-6VIA

I have an Encore audio card. It was in the computer when I received it (meaning I did not choose it).

I am attempting to set my computer up so that I can transfer some of my oldies from cassette to CD or HDD.

Just today I got everything set up so that I could see and record music that was playing on my radio and/or from a cassette player in the radio.

I thought I had resolved all of my problems; having gotten all the variables set where Audasity was playing and recording as I wanted.

I was so frustrated when I returned (after shutting down) to find that the optional settings (that we so frustrating to get) had been lost.

I'll get it back but can anyone tell me how to save the settings so that I don't have to repeat this every time I turn off the computer.

If I had the spare change for a real audio board- that audio board and its software would be gone.

I reloaded every few weeks because I acquire new mp3s nearly every day and could not figure out a better way to get my new mp3s into my playlists and library. I don't give I-Tunes any control over my library other than simple playback.

It's irrelevant now anyway. I just switched to Media Monkey and like it at least as well as I-Tunes. It doesn't use Quicktime and I have found a skin I like. No issues about gapless playback.

Dustywoodworker:

22,000 mp3s takes up about 91 gigabytes. You can figure about 250 high quality songs per GB, so your 40 GB should handle about 10,000 songs.

What settings did you lose? I'm not sure I understand what happened. Are you referring to Audacity?? I really like it and haven't lost any settings.

You should not need any software other than Audacity to transfer material from CD, cassette, or vinyl to the PC. My sound card is built into the motherboard and works well, so I have no need to use a separate card.

Good call on Mediamonkey....I've used it for quite a while now. I never would have bothered with iTunes if I didn't have iPods.

While it is correct to say that Quicktime is not needed with iTunes 10.5, may I suggest a bit of caution with that.

Let me quickly explain why.......

After upgrading my iPad to IOS 5 I found that I could not sync the device through iTunes. I tried everything I could think of, and found on the internet, but nothing worked. Sync would get as far as importing photos and then iTunes would crash. I even went so far as to take the iPad back to "as new" but still nothing.

Eventually, in desperation, I reinstalled Quicktime and everything worked correctly.

I have no idea why this should have worked because Quicktime has nothing to do with photos - in theory

Just beware.....

Thanks for the very quick response.

I do not believe that I have any problems with Audacity. It is there and seems to be responding as it should (with no inputs apparently).

After playing with it a little bit, it seems that my problems are all with the Envy 24 HF Audio Deck; furthermore, it works. I don't have a problem until I turn everything off and then come back. At that point, I have no input to Audacity until I go back to the Audio Deck and select them.

I would like to not need to do that. Maybe what I am asking for is unrealistic?????

I'm not exactly sure what Envy Audio Deck is.

Why do you have to use it??

All I use is my sound card and Audacity.

I am going to take a shot at answering this.

I think Audio Deck is to my 3rd party Audio Card (Envo) as WMP is to the on board (MOBO)audio card. The Envo audio card was there when I got the computer (a gift to the old guy).

How would you recommend I convert cassette tapes to either HDD files or CDs?

Maybe I am going about this the hard way.

This problem is NOT related to the hardware detailed in "My System Specs"

Audio Deck would certainly appear optional to me. There are substitutes for WMP too for that matter.

You can use Audacity to get cassettes onto the HDD in WAV file format. Once they are on the HDD, you can burn them to CD if you need to play back by CD--such as in a car. You can play back on your PC directly from your hard drive.

You first have to be able to simply play your cassettes from your regular cassette deck through your PC (speakers). This is normally done through standard RCA type cables from your PC to your home stereo system or cassette deck.

Have you gotten to where you can at least listen to cassettes played back on your cassette deck through the PC?

Audacity can then "capture" (to the PC) anything you are hearing.

Here is a tutorial from Audacity that might make some sense to you:

Thanks for that link to the Audacity tutorials. They will be very helpful . Like every thing that I get involved with these days, I have a lot of studying to do.

I for my original problem, I am considering it resolved. I just have to go into the Audio Deck each time an enable the inputs that are needed (the Line In signals). This is not ideal but the best I can do with this audio deck.

While working on this, I find that I have still another problem. I get an error message (c00d11b1) every time I attempt to activate Windows Media Player. The computer that this occurs on is running XP SP2.
