    Try the blue jack. If I remember correctly the blue jack is the industry standard line-in.

    What sort of record deck are you using to play the Vinyl ?
    If you are using a normal hi-fi deck you will need to pre-amp the signal to record it via a PC.

    Get a torch if needed. Like madmax1345 said. You are looking for 'line in'.

    Hipster - sorry but I couldn't resist - wouldn't a torch melt the vinyl????;) ;)

    I know you mean a flashlight as us yankees would call it.

    Perhaps I am amazed that someone has vinyl left (I do) and even more amazed that they have something to play the vinyl on (I do not!):D :D

    Maybe that's why we haven't heard from neilafc?

    I didn't do it. :eek:

    All my vinyls went about ten years ago.

    SPeedY_B - are you serious?

    I didn't know they still produced vinyls - of course I live a sheltered live in Mississippi which is behind the times.

    Or is the UK behind Mississippi?

    Or do I misunderstand - like we are talking about records - like 33 1/3's (LPs) or 45's (singles). Those normally black round things with grooves you play on this thing that goes around and around and has a dog on it and a big old cone that emits the sound and has an RCA medallion on it????;) ;)

    Thanks SPeedY_B - I thought you were pulling my leg - but if that's your profession - then I can understand your reasoning and why ya need the vinyl - I guess I just never gave the DJ angle much thought! Sorry!:eek:

    heh, it is quite rare to find vinyl these days of new music unless its something in the dance genre or like-wise.
    People who are just into this kind of music will usually buy compilation CD's so not many people know that there are new vinyls released every week because quite simply they dont -need- to :happy:

    I buy a ton of Vinyl every week and the first thing I do is put them to mp3 that way I will always have a copy. I use soundforge to record them.

    Here in the San Francisco Bay area there are many vinyl stores. I too have bought many more albums on vinyl this year than cd. There is just a certin sound from vinyl that is hard to replicate on cd.
