Recording from cassette to laptop

May 14, 2007
Hi there,

I am having trouble recording from a cassette player to my laptop (same setup works fine on my friends laptop and so it must be a setting or something on this particular laptop). I'm using audacity on a Sony Vaio VGN-BX195VP and whenever i try to record the recording comes out with a very loud fuzzing noise (on any volume). can anyone help at all? Many thanks :)
