Me again. Today I tackled a project that has moved around my office for several weeks, a small Japanese vinyl record my daughter wanted digitized. I've done this kind of thing before, but a long time ago, and I had several software questions and one hardware question to sort out.

I finally dug out a cable with 3.5mm stereo plugs that would fit into the 1/4" adapter for the receiver and would plug into the back of the computer. My several attempts with RCA cables went nowhere - they refuse to connect. I moved the receiver, swapping positions with the turntable, and captured the signal with Audible and then converted the WAV file to mp3 with Nero WaveEditor. As a bonus for her I scanned the cover and I'll add the art to the music in Windows Media Player.

Now that I have figured out the parts, I have many other things to start converting. I've ordered a longer cable so I can put the receiver back where it was.
