| I downloaded Audacity to record from a tape deck. I have the deck

| when I opened your program and tried to select line-in as the input source
| it won't let me. I can't choose anything in that drop down menu, it doesn't
| even open.
If you mean you can hear the tape deck through the computer speakers then I
presume this is because you are have the line-in unmuted as a playback device
in the system mixer. That's fine, but if the Audacity input selector is greyed out
you will need to set the recording device on the Audio I/O tab of Audacity
Preferences to the sound device the tape deck is plugged into, and if the selector
is still greyed out, you will need instead to select the line-in as recording source
in the system mixer (e.g. Sounds and Audio Devices on Windows). If this is
necessary, you may need to update the drivers of the sound device to the latest
ones for your computer model from the manufacturer of the device or
motherboard before you will be able to choose the source properly in the
If you have any further questions, please tell us what operating system you are
on (e.g. Windows XP) and please tell us what version of Audacity you are using
(see Help > About in the program).
