|Apparently the Tevion USB turntable comes with software . |
READ the installation instructions for it !
If it has a full manual on the CD that came with it, READ it !
E.g. You often have to install software for a more sophisticated USB device BEFORE you plug in it's USB connection.
If that doesn't help ....
Unless the instructions for installing a device tell you otherwise.......
You DO NOT install drivers for a device while booting into Windows, if the software for the device has not been installed yet - when Windows detects a generic device or New Hardware while booting, you allow it to search for drivers, it doesn't find any, and it wants you to show it the location of the drivers - CANCEL that, continue on to the desktop, and install the software for the device using the proper installation from a CD or the proper installation file that you downloaded from the web.
If you DID install drivers that way,
(The following also applies if you want to re-install the sound software)
- go to Control Panel - Classic View - Add/Remove Programs and Un-install the software you installed, reboot, DO NOT install drivers while booting.
Install the software properly by running the proper download you got from the web, or if you have the CD that came with the device, run the software installation from the installation program on that.
You MAY need to plug the USB turntable into a different USB port - it may require that the port you plug it into is able to actually provide 500ma of current.
