Can't Record Sound

Question

I've been transferring my vinyl collection to CD with Easy CD & DVD Creator until I got a new mobo and installed XPpro. This board/OS did not like EasyCD so I got C2009 (not as good as Easy CD) but I cannot get any sound. I use the line input but C2009 does not see any sound board and gives me no choices for an input device. (Coinsidently, Easy CD does not see any sound input port either.)

 

I've checked all the sound switches and volume switches many times but no success. My board is an Intel dual processor with the Realtek HD sound chip running Xp Pro SP3.

 

Thanks for any and all suggestions. Rob

I just recorded my first lp. First I had the same problem. I went to contol panel/settings/sound audio devices/audio/sound recording tab and selected (sound card). Now I could record. All worked great. I still cannot monitor audio during recording though. Any idea?

Robair, did claygrace post help you?

 

claygrace that is not unusual when using a sound chip rather than a sound card. Some chips just don't allow recording and playback. Just keep an eye on those meters bouncing up and down. If you don't have a laptop and you plan on recording a lot of music, consider installing a $35 sound card (example Creative cards will allow you to hear and record via a "What you hear" setting".

 

Note be sure to turn off the system sound while you are recording or you will hear all those little Windows sounds.

I have the same problem: IMPOSSIBLE to record LP sound. In Control Panel>Sounds...>Audiotab> I chose: Realtek HD Audio Input. In Roxio I chose "Digitize LPs en Tapes": then I get a dialogue box. where I see Capture From: Realtek HD Digital Input and I CANNOT change this to Realtek HD Audio Input. In the same dialogue box I see "Input": CD Volume and I CANNOT change this to Line In or Microphone or Webcam as it should be. Replies to numerous questions (Roxio, Realtek, Microsoft, PC dealer) were all useless. Anybody any idea for any solution ?

How do you have the player connected to your computer? What OS are you using?

 

If you open "Capture Audio from Sound Card" does the application see your audio chip?

 

None of those suggested either a Sound Card or (if laptop) an external audio card or USB device?

Player is connected to the PC via Line In or via Micr. I thought Realtek HD was the soundcard. "If you open "Capture Audio from Sound Card" does the application see your audio chip?" How do I get aware that the appication sees my audio chip ?

What does it show in the window? If it shows your audio chip, play some music. If the meters are moving, it is recognizing the setting. If it does not, then go to the right drop down box and select another input option. Do this until you see the meters moving. Record a short amount to see if you are truly recording.
