Just got a modern digital turntable in the box, at a garage sale for just pennies.. Seems the previous owner angrily gave-up on trying to get it working.. Seems he even beat it up a little in punishing it for not working, but it's still in good shape.. It works with an old amp, but not to computer, yet...

It's an "Ion Profile LP" turntable.. It has a USB connect, but it doesn't even register on any Linux OS.. The instruction manual says it's for Windoze & Mac.. I wonder if that excluides Linux OS's..? The CD drivers don't load to any Linux OS.. I've wasted many hours on the Net, and with various towers and OS's, trying to get this thing going, but have had only failures.. Does anyone out there know how to make an ion tt work with Linux?..
What's the best Linux OS for pulling tunes from vinyl..? I've got All the prime 60's, 45's and 33's, about a ton of prime condition vinyl records to work through to get the music I like to mp3... umm.. "HELP!"...

Thank you dear Michaelk..

WhooH! this thing gets more and more complicated by the minute, but eventually I'll get it...

From your link, seems I must dig for an adapter that connects 2-male RCA plugs to one sterio pinjack, so I can plug it into the sound card's input.. I might have one in the junk boxes in the shed, hopes I.. so I'm off to the shed to dig in boxes, where ever they might be..?

Got Audacity installed.. WoW! Audacity is sure a full powerful piece of software.. Makes me wonder if they'll ever see it to make their own Linux distro called Audacity..?
Whomever wrote that software is probably "state of the art/cutting-edge/wave-crest"...

I have anotther little problem with getting music from 2 other computers..
I recently got 2 scrap blue iMacs from garage sales for a dollar each.. They play their tuines, but that's all I can do with them.. One has 300-60's tunes, the other has 750 super 60's & early 70's tunes on its hd..
I tried CD and Flash to pull off the tunes, but all attempts failed.. I don't have the OS's PW's, nor do I have any of the OS install CD's to force change PW's.. I plan to pull off the tunes, then install the 2 macs with a suitable artist Linux OS's, but I'm finding there's a lot of dynamic finickying with setting the clock, and adding old drivers, before the installs with work.. Seems it's gonna be one h of stretch...
Any ideas how to get those 750 tunes off the iMac..?

Uhh...really?? You're not new to Linux, based on your other post. You're also known as "cosmicbrat", "occultrush", and "cosmicb", all of whom have been posting crap on Linux forums for YEARS, and each time you claim to be 'new' to it. Sorry, but you're either a VERY slow learner, or a liar.

Those cables are cheap, but if you had tried Google for help, you'd have turned up lots...even on the Audacity website:
forum. audacityteam. org / viewtopic.php?f=48&t=66069

The device shows up as a USB sound device...go into Audacity, and select it for input. You don't bother giving any details (what linux you're using, what desktop, sound hardware), so not much anyone can help you with. Although based on your blog, help is certainly needed.
