Can Capture Audio But I Can't Hear It

Question

I just read a thread you posted in 6/2009 about the fix for being able to hear audio, but not being able to capture it using Roxio Creator 2009 on a computer running Vista.

 

My problem is the reverse...I can capture, or so it appears, audio from internet radio but I can't hear anything. I did right click on the sound icon in my systray and saw that my Realtek High Definition Audio is working. However, what I don't have is Line USB 2861 Device (Roxio’s Capture device). Do I need this and, if so, why since I am recording from the internet and not from or through an external source? (Do you have any idea where this device can be purchased from...Roxio only has a Video Capture USB. )

You do not need to have a capture device IF you are only capturing Internet Audio. There are two issues. Some devices will not play as they capture - that is probably the main issue. There is a work around involving running a line from your computer back into your computer but that is a poor work around. The other is that Windows Vista has several settings that must be right or you will not hear the music. I don't have Vista so you will have to play around with both the Playback and the recording set up.

 

The simplest solution if you have a desk top is to replace that audio chip with an inexpensive audio card. Sound Blaster has several that work very well. You will be amazed at how much better anything you capture will sound.

 

Can you hear the music if you play it back after capturing it?

I can only assume that I am capturing the sound when I try to record sound from the internet. But, I am not able to hear anything on the CD or DVD when I play them back. As for getting the linking device, I would have no trouble plugging in the USB portion but those other leads would not plug into either my tape deck or record player since the connection in their backs are via clips...like alligator clips. (My stereo system is about 35yrs. old...I only saved it from the trash so I could burn my tapes and 33 rmp albums to CDs and/or DVDs.)

Buy a set of phono leads with male connectors. Plug one end into the gubbins, cut the other plug off and peel back the insulation - you weill then have a wire and a screen - connect the screen to the ground connection and the wire to the other one. Repeat for the second channel.

 

However, for Internet streamed radio - have you considered the possibility that this is actually blocked (and you can't record it at all)?
