You had better contact Dragonfly DAC . Did it not come with a user manual on how to install.

There is nothing to setup with this DAC other than the initial settings in the control panel. Once the Dragonfly is plugged into a USB port it automatically sets itself as the main sound card. The Realtek card which was the original worked fine with both playback and recording. Roxio can't open the Dragonfly

You should realize that all capture audio is taken from what is coming from the RGC via the USB connection to your PC...

 

NOTHING else can be captured, unless it is introduced at the RGC Device -_-

I appreciate your help Jim but I don't understand this RGC Device thing. I'm using a HP 8600h Workstation with Windows 7 not that this has any bearing on my record problem. You are dealing with a 71 year old who is also a JIm

Don't try to hide behind your age, I'm only a couple years younger than you!

 

RGC = Roxio Game Capture

 

It consists of the Software ~ capture/edit/streaming

 

As well as the Device

 

The software captures ONLY from the Device!

 

Your Sound Card, Microphone or your Dragonfly DAC is not accessible to the Software unless it is added at the Device.

 

Nothing will change that.

 

Now some questions for you!

 

What is it that you want to capture? How are you hooking that up?

I just want to capture streaming audio. Before the Dragonfly I was hooked up from my line in on the computer while using tape out, I also was using Hi-Fi link for streaming which was a USB connection on the computer and that ran to my video four output. It all worked fine but I do hear an improvement with the Dragonfly but it may be more trouble than it's worth. I don't do gaming

Were does Roxio fit in this?, and what specific Roxio program do you have?, and how do you have it hooked up.

I use Roxio Creator 10 and one of their applications that I like to use is Easy Audio Capture so I can record streaming music off the web

Do you even have the Roxio Capture Device? If not why did you post in the forum for the device? Now you state you have Roxio Creator 10 (actually there is no such program) or do you mean Easy Media Creator 10 or do you have Roxio Creator 2010?

 

Please clarify exactly what program you have , be specific with the full name. Your topic will then be moved to the correct forum.

Lets re-cap.

 

Whatever Roxio product you have...... you said in post 5 "The Realtek card which was the original worked fine with both playback and recording"

From that information we know the Roxio program is working fine.

 

The only change you made was you replaced your internal sound card with Audioquest Dragonfly DAC .

 

You also stated that the "Audioquest Dragonfly doesn't show up in the recording settings area my sounds and hardware in the control pane"

 

So, until you get that fixed it is not going to work. Go here http://www.audioques.../flight    click on the DRAGONFLY - FLIGHT MANUAL tab, set your choice of language, and then scroll down to page 9, and follow the instructions.

 

If that does not work, contact Audioquest.
