Hi Hank
I'm sure that Greg or Eric will get back to you, It's being analyzed, I guess.

If you want to fix having to stop between records or tapes you will need more
RAM. You need at least 2 gigs, if you don't scan album covers. I use 4 gigs because I do.

Hi Again

The sound cards for prebuilt computers cost between $5 and $8. They are OK if you don't do gaming or music. Treat yourself, as many of us have also done so, to a good quality sound card, if that is your problem.

Hi It would be an equipment problem, not a SIA problem. The Quick easy test is to Switch your Red and [Black or White] cables [at the closest point to the Computer] and see if the other channel now has the low volume. Make sure that all plugs are snug, particularly at the computer input. I just tras...

Hi I still don't understand what you are doing after the music [stereo] goes to the computer. SIA has build a volume control into the program. You set it by testing records or tapes first to get the proper volume. There is also an equalizer build into program where you fix "Clicks and noise. The nor...

Hi A couple of comments. First, I don't understand this line.."Then the audio "out" from the computer to a tape in jack on the equalizer". Second, you have to be careful with two prong plugs on the various old Stereo equipment you mention. If they are on the same breaker [or fuse] as your computer. ...

Hi Bob The short answer is No. However, I use a lot of different methods to get a clean copy. If it is a single, you can deep clean the record. I use a soft toothbrush and Isopropanol 99% Alcohol but you can use clear water to deep clean. If it is an Album, I continue to record the Album. I then go ...

Hi Hank Intermittent anything can only be a resource problem. Check to see what else that you have running at the same time. You should have NOTHING ELSE RUNNING. Check your "Start/Programs file folder and delete anything not needed for SIA and reboot. Also close all except for SIA. I invested in an...

Hi
Before I take this further, assure me that under the "Audio" Tab in "Settings" that you have checked the box for "Monitor Recording Device throught Playback Device" and that your Playback Device is your Sound Card.

Hi Two things to consider when choosing WAV over MP3 is file size and tagging. WAV files are 3 or 4 times larger and the tagging on the MP3 files is correct for most usages whereas WAV files are not. If you use iTunes on your computer look in your iTunes LIbrary where you will see what I mean. Your ...

You should have a button on your bottom task bar that will indicate that it is it; if you move your coursor over it. If you found...

Hi I think that you will have trouble [as I have had], if you make a CD Mixing WAV files with MP3's or WMA's. Older CD Players just go nuts with CD's made this way. Computer drives don't handle them much better. You can mix MP3's with WMA's. WMA is only good for Media Player. You have to make a choi...

Hi Again

You must have a poor or corrupted OS maybe VISTA.
You can upgrade to Win 7 for something over $50.
I would do that and start over.
