Sounds like you do not have the options and defaults set correctly for your sound. Just for kicks, right click on the small speaker icon on your task bar and the click on "Playback devices" this should take you to a screen where you can make several different choices for you sounds and mic settings. Make sure that the "default" is set to the proper setting.

It appears to be a conflict between Adobe and Roxio. I have no clue what you need to do to resolve it. Hopefully, someone else, who has had the same problem, will drop in and get your sorted.

If you open Easy Audio Capture and look at the drop down for Input what do you have for choices?

I have an Audigy and use What You Hear for mine.Does the X-Fi Extreme have that?If so try it.

 

Another thing to do is go to the Control Panel,Sound and when you get there hit the Recording tab.Right click any device you see and check Show Disabled Devices and Show Hidden Devices.Now go back to the list and see if there are any new devices.If so enable them by right clicking and checking Enable.

Now go back to EAC and see if you have any devices showing that will do the trick.

not so much as maybe the soundcard is not supported...works fine on my other computer, but this one does not have the option of "what you hear" and none of the options works except the microphone, which does work...it just can not find the souind card apparently...

For Kicks I installed Soundbooth on the system with EMC 9/10/C2009 and have not seen any issues for Audio Capture and still able to select my crappy Sigmatel ;) Try few things below.

 

1. Rt click on Speaker icon in systemtray and choose Recording Device

2. Rt click in the Recording window and choose to "Show Disabled device"

3. If above still does not show anything, go to Device Manager and delete drivers and uninstall the card.

4. Reboot and let it detect the card again and if possible update the driver.

done that a hundred times...no luck...I do not have the "what you hear" option on this computer, although my other computer with this program does....

Is your other machine XP or Vista?

If it's XP then that would explain why it sees the inputs but the Vista machine doesn't.

 

When Microsoft created Vista they changed the way that sound works.Because of this some sound cards just don't show their full capabilities.It's a matter of the sound card manufacturer making his product work in Vista.

About the only thing you can do is go to Creative's site and make sure you have the latest drivers and/or software installed for that card.I'm not familiar with that card so other than that I can't think of anything else.

You've already checked the things that I've done to make mine work.It all boils down to what inputs the card presents to the Operating System.

nope..both machines are Vista Ultimate and I just downloaded the newest drivers from the site for the sound card....grrrrrrr I'm thinkin they did not get a driver for my card ....HP did the same thing with the 7680 printer....Roxio Help is not much help either...

Yeah,see that's what I have in mine and it works in both XP and Vista.The card provides that What you Hear input that works perfectly.

Why Creative decided it didn't need that in that line of cards is beyond me.I wonder if all the X-Fi cards are the same?

dunno but since it is an "extreme music card" it should work , dontcha think???? grrrrrrrrr

Just guessing, but most likely was removed because of DRM requirements in Vista.

 

Some sound card options are disabled in Vista by default. Check post #7 for that.

 

But yes, the card should be working with audio capture. You should at least see the microphone as an input and aux input.

I'm not sure microphone will work for Internet radio.

I'd think you'd need something like What you hear,Wav,or whatever other cards use that are basically the same thing.

You're trying to capture something you're listening to not something you're actually plugging into one of the inputs.

With my Audigy in XP the only 2 things that work for Internet Radio are What You Hear and Wav/MP3.I believe the same ones work in Vista.I'm not at that machine right now so I can't say positively.

I only said that the microphone WORKS, so I know the card is fine..everything is enabled, no hidden, no muted sounds, no "what youhear option"...just does not work with internet radio...stupid thing to do if they did it onpurpose...

I realize that buzz.

Unfortunately,if you've done all the things mentioned and Easy Audio Capture still doesn't see an Input that will work then I think you're out of luck.I don't have Soundbooth so I don't know what it's looking at to get it's capture.

Unless the card presents an Input to the OS that the software recognizes it just won't work.This is mostly being found in Vista with the way sound now works.

 

I'm glad I'm seeing this because I'm considering a new sound card and if Creative's cards aren't giving good inputs anymore I'll reconsider my options.Too bad cuz I've used Creative cards forever.

Hi

 

Reading this forum out of interest - trying to decide whether to upgrade. Thought I'd just mention ..................

 

I use EMC 10, and have the same soundcard and Vista 32 bit - nearly at the end of processing 350 albums/tapes. I have never had any problems with EMC 10 and the SB X-Fi Extreme card - works just fine, so I find it hard to believe it won't work with 2009. I feel it must be settings somewhere on your PC. All the options are there, including 'what you hear'.

 

Are you sure you have checked all your connections to the sound card line-in and ensured the bits you need are enabled? I confess I have never fiddled with the settings as it has always worked for me.

 

In control panel, harware & sound, sound, recording tab............... there are options for changing the default from 'microphone' to 'Auxilliary', 'line-in', 'digital in' or 'whart you hear'. Have you tried experimenting with those?

I confess I'm not a technical person, so cannot think of any whizzy solutions for you.

 

My PC is coming up 2 years old now - soundcard was installed using a CD provided with it rather than letting Vista detect it - don't know if that means 'extras' have been installed over and above what Vista would do.

 

Since then, I have updated the drivers using a driver detection utility I bought (rather than going to all the different the manufacturer's sites). My driver is showing as provided & signed by Creative Labs inc, version 6.0.1.1361 dated 15 July 2008

 

Good luck

GBR

I have one more suggestion Buzzz. I too have played around with several different sound cards and have found out why you don't get the "What you hear" option when you click on the speaker Icon (on the task bar) and then on Recording devices. I have no idea what BIOS setup you have and don't know if your MB and computer case has options for audio ports on the fromof your case, but give this a try:

 

On bootup, go into your BIOS SETUP (click on del, esc or what ever key is required on your computer) and then on the advanced (tab) cursor down to see if you have a listing for "On Board Device Configuration" or similar listing. Then click on that and then see if you have a listing for "H. D. Audio". If you do, Disable it and then exit and save changes to your bIOS. Once your computer has rebooted, check to see now if you have the "What you Hear" listing.

 

My computer is running an Audigy 2zs sound card, Vista Home premium OS and a "Phoenix" BIOS chip. And I have ports on the front of my computer case for Audio, Mic, USB and Firewire. If I want to use the audio ports on the front of the computer, I have to use the BIOS to select H.D. Audio. If I want to use my Audigy sound card I have to disable the H.D. option in the BIOS. This all depends on if you have a sound card, or if you don't and are using the sound chip that is onboard your MB.

If I am correct, then I assume that your Dell has no on board audio chip but rather just the Soundblaster x-fi extreme sound card. Other wise there would be no way to change from the on board chip to the sound card. Sorry you are still having problems. It's certainly odd that others that have that same sound card (but possibly on a different manufacturer's computer or custom) has the option of "What You Hear". That really is strange <_<
