CAPTURE AUDIO NOT WORKING

Question

My EASY AUDIO CAPTURE is not working.I just installed my Roxio media creator 7.5 onto my new computer. I have windows XP as before (no problems on my old computer). I tried capturing from various sources (Streamline radio stations, outside sources such as my record player..line in) but no indication of any audio in my EASY CAPTURE AUDIO pop up box so I can download it. The audio is working from all the sources I mention. It's just not capturing it like before (old computer). REALTEK HD audio input is in the sound device box. I've had no problems with any other sound devices WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER,REAL PLAYER,WINAMP..ETC.

What I'm saying is all of my media players & sound are working fine PRIOR to using ROXIO. When I go & use ROXIO ,under Music I click on Capture audio. That's how I've always "recorded" sound off the internet ( streamline ,etc.). Unless it's a download from that site in which case, I don't need ROXIO. Thanks.

What I'm trying to find out is if the Windows capture is still working or not - that's why I asked the question.

 

A second one tho - did you install Internet Explorer 7? (That is wrecking EMC 7x like you wouldn't believe)

Yes. It came with my new computer. I also downloaded FIREFOX 2.0 ( which is giving me problems asking for pluggins for certain things & I haven't a clue what to do) ,but that's another story for the FIREFOX message board I guess.

I've had no problems (that I'm aware of ) with IE except, for this problem.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by the Windows Capture.

 

I've used Windows Media Player to listen & only recently I've burned two CD's with it . Captured songs on that player then burned. Is that what your asking?

I guess captured isn't the proper terminalogy. I had the songs in MY MUSIC from previous downloads then sent them to WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER. It's the audio broadcast's from net or Rhapsody playlist's songs..things like that ,that I'm trying to capture with my EASY MEDIA CREAROR 7.5 ...CAPTURE AUDIO.

Sorry if I'm not explaining myself well nuf. It's probably something really dumb that I'm missing. But, as I said before. Never had problem before, til new computer.

GGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....I just found SOMETHING. I went to the front mic RECORDING CHANNEL box that picks up what I'm trying to capture ( EASY AUDIO CAPTURE) & I pushed the audio capture volume on far left top just above AUTO ...all the way up...& I barely see the db's showing ( the left/right bars going up & down that show the audio being captured) but I do barely finally see them. So I recorded it with my easy audio capture. It captured it.I went to my music downloads to listen to it and it's BARELY hearable. A whisper. Adjusting the MASTER VOLUME on my computer doesn't help. A bread crumb to start with but. NOW WHAT?

If IE7 came with the computer, I'd suggest you go to add/remove programs and uninstall it - that could well be the problem.

 

IE7 was not part of the original XP setup - it looks as if it may have been added by whoever installed the OS (by doing a complete update before selling it to you)

Since these are downloaded files, they may have DRM code, and therefore only play with software (WinPlayer) that can enforce the code.

No, they are not downloaded yet. My problem is trying to capture it with proper volume . As stated above I am capturing it but with virtually no volume.

 

Did you uninstall IE 7?

I am using IE 6. You are not going to get your problems solved with your EMC 7.5 until you revert back to IE 6.

Well, as I tried to uninstall IE 7 I was warned by the uiinstall that I "may" loose programs that were put there since IE 7 was installed & may harm operation of computer. Also I've been told that IE 6 may not automatically be there after uninstalling IE 7 although it should. Now I'm REALLY paranoid about uninstalling IE 7, AS MUCH AS, I want to.

 

Also, I did this... DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I COULD CAPTURE LIKE THIS (DAH)....I went to ACCESSORIES>ENTERTAINMENT>SOUND RECORDER ( I didn't even know about this recorder)....I played around with everything below & STILL only got a whisper when playing file after capturing it.

1. Place a music CD in the CD-ROM drive. Stop any audio player that may start up.

2. On the Windows Start menu select Programs, then Accessories.

3. Select Entertainment and open up both Volume control and Sound recorder.

4. In Volume Control, click Options, then Properties. The Properties dialog will

appear.

5. Click the Recording radio button, and in the list of devices make sure the source

you want to use is active. Click OK.

6. Adjust volume for recording, and make sure that every device checkbox is active.

7. Play the CD, then click the record button in Sound recorder. Stop recording after

about 10 seconds and stop the CD.

8. Playback what was recorded. If no audio was recorded, choose another source

under the recording control and then do the same as above, until a WAV file has been

recorded.

If trying to capture a video clip, follow steps 2-8 above.

Once you have successfully recorded something, audio capture should work in

VideoWave. Make note of the system audio settings that work properly in case the

settings change in the future.

 

NOW,this isn't even ROXIO. PLUS , on top of it all I realized I had IE 7 on my previous computer & I had no problems .
