    Noisy Signal

    hey i have alot of noise on my carputer and im not too sure how to fix it. I have read posts on the forum but i havent found anyone that has the same setup as me .... Im just running a computer with the output of my soundblaster to a tape adapeter and that into the tape deck. Should i just buy a ground loop isolator right away or is there other things that could be goin wrong.?? oh yeah the noise stays constant if the motor is not running

    Regardless of your setup noise is usually caused by the same thing.

    First: Tape adapters are not that great I am currently using one too, so I am not knocking you, but sound quality from tape adapters is rather poor.

    Second: Make sure EVERYTHING is grounded.

    Third: The ground loop isolator can help, but since it will degrade sound quality you should try checking your grounds first.

    What did you do to ground your DSCustoms screen?

    Di you connect it up using the single cable that carries vid and power, or run seperate cables for them?
