problems with capturing


agomoll

Question

hi, i'm running emc9 on a new vista laptop. i'm trying to capture audio off of the soundcard, but i can only get the program to capture audio from the microphone. the drop down menu to change input devices only lists the microphone and not the sound card. is there a specific way i can get this program to recognize my soundcard?

thanks, any help would be much appreciated!

Have you checked for updated drivers from Realtek.

 

However, due to the extreme hand-holding of Vista, you probably won't be able to use these as they will not be 'MS Certified'.

 

Another thing re Vista - the DRM is extremely tight and if there is any form of copy protection, it just won't let you do it.

 

Do the tracks play in Media Player?

The tracks play in Media Player. They also play on Winamp.

 

I have checked for updates from Realtek and, strangely enough, what they have online got rid of the "disabling the DLA drive" popup window everyone seems to be having problems getting rid of. Nonetheless, I still can't capture sound.

 

Regarding DRM, the streaming audio that I want to copy is not protected. I have an older PC with Windows XP, and have not encountered any problems capturing music from the same sources while using that computer. I've actually tested capturing non-protected tracks that I already have on my new PC's hard drive and the same thing happens - nothing! Come to think of it when I open Easy Audio Capture in the older PC, it lists the sound card by name in the "Capture From" box and "What U Hear" in the Input box. It does not do that in the PC running Vista - that area is grayed out so I can't get in there to change it.

 

I also spoke with a Roxio tech who claims the most probable reason why I'm encountering this kind of problem is that the audio card is probably an "on board" card vs. an "after market" sound card. Does this make sense to anyone?

 

Would appreciate any guidance as to what to do next. Thanks.

I think basically, if you don't have a laptop you'd be best fitting a dedicated soundcard in the computer - it doesn't need to be a state of the art one - any of the mid range ones should do the job

Hi folks, I'm having the exact same problem as described on my new HP Pavilion running Vista. However,

I have a second HP Pavilion running Windows XP, and the capture function works fine. Both PC's have ON-BOARD sound circuits, but the difference is that the one running Windows XP uses Realtek AC97 Audio and

the newer one running Vista uses Realtek HD audio technoligy. I read an article that states Rixio EMC9 has been certified with Windows Vista Operating Sytem so maybe that leaves the Realtek HD audio with it's existing drivers at fault. Your comments please. I sure would like to get this problem resolved, many thanks.

I'm also experiencing problems with EMC 9 recognizing incoming sound when using Easy Audio Capture, Media Import, Music Disc Creator, Sound Editor, etc. My new PC has a Realtek HD sound card, which gives me the option to capture from either the microphone, line in, or digital in. Problem is that it doesn't recognize sound coming in from any of those three sources. The recording levels and input box on the Easy Media Capture and Media Import are grayed out, and the sound bar is at 0. I have tried raising it, but it automatically goes back to 0. When I use Sound Editor or Music Disc Creator, no sound is heard when I play a track even though it shows on the monitor that it is playing. Has anyone encountered similar problems? Better yet can someone help me correct this? Thanks.

 

P.S. The operating system is Windows Vista.

If it's picking up the mic' then it is seeing the sound card (that's there the mic plugs in)

 

Check volume control properties and make sure that 'line in' is there and not muted (that's where the audio input is supposed to be)

Drivers in Vista seem to be a real problem. From what I've heard (I don't run Vista so I can't confirm it) is that it will not let you load up drivers that are not 'Microsoft Certified', so going to the card maker's website mightn't be any use.

 

It could be worth a try tho and see if they will install an updated set

Do you have a line in jack on the laptop? Some don't.
