    I am using audacity on Windows xp with A Dell computer Desktop Dimension E510. My recordings from an external source (tape player) are being recorded and viewed as Mono
    rather than Stero. My hook up is correct but I am wondering if the Line in is placed in the correct input device. IT is impossible to read.
    I would appreciate any advice.
    Thanks in advance

    Since you are converting from dual line-out plugs (RCA) going from the recorder to a single stereo mini-plug for the sound card's line-in jack -- confirm that the patch cord you are using really has a stereo plug on the end of it.

    This will be indicated by TWO dividers -- not just one.

    I think this is the most common error -- I even made it myself, although knowing better, I just did not look as closely as I should have at the patch cord I used.

    Also verify that Audacity's settings are for two channel stereo -- although this is the default -- need to mention it anyway. And of course the Sound card's line-in should be present and selected as the input device.

    The sound properties/help configuration of your Sound card should assist you in identifying the correct jack.
