HELP PLEEEEASE!

Posted: 11-20-2004, 11:17 AM
I have purchased Roxio Creator 7 to burn my tapes onto CD's and I have no
problem recording them other then I cannot for some reason adjust my record
volume level. When I download them and play back it sounds like it was
recording in full volume. I have been into all the controls and reset all
levels except the "record volume" and it won't let me move the slide bar to
adjust the volume. I've read EVERY help menu and troubleshooting menu in my
computer. If anyone knows what the problem could be PLEASE help me.

Is the sound distorted because it's too loud?

This page describes, with pictures, how to set things up using Roxio
version 5.0: http://users.bigpond.net.au/lionelsite/exercise_29.htm

If that doesn't help, try searching Roxio support here:
http://www.roxio.com/en/support/index.jhtml

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful- I've never used Roxio for ripping from
cassette. I use the free version of MusicMatch Jukebox for vinyl and
cassette ripping, as described here:
http://www.pcworld.com/howto/article/0,aid,17663,00.asp and here:

Ian.

Are you using just the Roxio record adjustments..? Have you tried the
windows controls..? Or both..

Hi Nick
Thanks for answering. Yes I have tried every control that I could possibly
find. Roxie and windows. It will tell you on both of them where to go to
set the controls and how to do it but it won't let me set the record volume
and it's recording FULL volume. If you can imagine someone with hair down to
their waist and standing on end all over their head? Well that would be me!
LOL For over a solid week I have been trying to figure this out. When it is
recording of course I can hear the sound on my stero and on my pc speakers
which sounds fine. When I play the recording back you can tell that it was
recorded in full volume. I'm at wits ends and if you have a solution or
suggestion short of blowing the computer up, I would really be grateful.
Thanks Again

Thank You for answering Ionizer. I will check out those sites again. I have
a ton of tapes I would love to be able to burn. When I am recording it
sounds fine, through my speakers on my stero as well as on my PC speakers.
But when I got to play it back you can tell that it was recorded in Full
Volume. Like when you turn your stero up to load and you know it's way over
the margin that it should be. I can't figure out why it will let me adjust
everything from Volume control to Telephone rings and won't let me adjust the
record volume. Has my head spinning. I appreciate your feed back. If you
can think of anything else I would be willing to give it a try.

Thank You Kindly

Hello Nick
I have a cable hooked into my stero in the output jacks running to the
computer and plugged into the Mic port in my computer. My mixer device is a
VIA AC'97 Enhanced. Don't know if that means anything or not but that's the
only option it gives me. I'm a dummy when it comes to knowing the internal
parts of the computer that makes it click. When something isn't available
for options it's normally grayed out isn't it? My recording volume control
isn't, it just won't let me adjust it. Spent 3 hours going through all the
steps of Roxio yesterday to no avail. It must be something in my Windows is
all I can figure. Again Thanks for your help.

In the dark days when I was using AC'97, I remember a setting in Options to
display Recording Panel. In other words, the recording settings are not
available unless you enable them to be displayed. Options can be accessed
either through Sound Mgt. in Control Panel or from the applet in the Task
Bar.

Good Morning Michael
Thanks for the reply. Still to no avail I have been into the control panel
and checked to enable the record volume and it still will not let me slide
the volume control. It's probably something so simple that it makes it
complicated. Thanks again for your reply.

If you are plugged into the mic port on the pc, then you have to use the mic
slider, their are two of them one for input and one for output. (the windows
ones). Its not the mic slider that first comes up when you dub click the
little speaker at the bottom right. If you can't find it post back.
