Cannot Record Line In Sound, Using USB Sound Device
I've had this problem since windows vista, in windows xp i could record my line in perfectly, without any problems, but now, even if i enabled Stereo mix(tried mono also) it won't make any sound when i try playing some music.
Anyony that can help me with this?
Also, as stated in the title, i'm using an USB sound card device.
USB Mic Shows As Sound Device
For my radio project and podcasts I've invested in a digital microphone. I also got a wireless keyboard and mouse with volume control, not very important but it factors in.
When I start Windows I have two sound devices: The actual speakers and this ProSound mic. Under the actual speakers would be things like VLC and under the mic would be other vital things like Iron (Chrome). If I want to watch/listen to something online I have to plug out the mic. This puts all the programs under the Speakers device. If I plug it back in these programs RETURN to the ProSound mic.
So first of all I need to know why my programs made this choice and how do I put a stop to it? Secondly how do I make my speakers my primary device so I can use these awesome volume controls I paid out the *** to use.
No Sound, No Sound Device Detected, Drives Installed
I'm in a pickle with my machine and Windows 7 after this latest update. On startup I get an error from MMDevApi.dll saying that it might not run on Windows or... something else. This also occurs anytime a program tries to use the sound card ie. WoW, Yahoo IM, Live IM, SL, etc. I've updated my sound card drivers to the newest ones. I still get an error that says the device is detected when going to "Sound Devices" in the control panel.
Trying to adjust the sounds themselves leads me to the Windows Audio thing... which won't start even from the component list.
normally i only have 1 sound card/sound device in sound settings when i use hdmi with my tv, i have 2 sound devices in there, and i can choose 1 one of them as default, and ALL applications i run will play sound on that default device, so i choose hdmi (my tv) as default, open chrome for my mom watch movies, sound play on my tv (hdmi), that's what i want and i open firefox, go to youtube, sound also play on my tv (hdmi), that's not what i want, i want it (firefox) to play sound on my pc, so my mom can watch movies on tv, and i can watch youtube on pc
is there a way to do this? a way to set per-application sound card/sound device setting? i know some programs like windows media player or vlc can let you choose sound card, but firefox, chrome do not. i tried indievolume and it did not work, even uninstalled, reinstalled but did not work, or is there any browser that let me choose sound card setting (like wmp and vlc, but these 2 are not browser)
and does anyone know if mac or windows 8 has this feature as built-in? if windows 8 does then i might upgrade
Can't Record Sound Any More
I have Windows 7 and have successfully recorded sound clips using the Accessories Sound Recorder. Next time I recorded a sound I carelessly plugged the mic into the earphone socket. Naturally I was unable to play back a previously recorded sound so I fiddled with the settings (I'm descended from a long line of idiots). Then the penny dropped and I plugged the mic into the correct socket, now because of my fiddling I can't record clips that will play back. I can play back my earlier clips.
Cannot Record Streaming Sound On Windows 7 Laptop
I used to be able to record sound. I used to have a vista system and was never able to record sound (what I you hear i.e. streaming sound) so as soon as I got my new windows 7 laptop it was the first thing I checked. I have selected the SoundMix as my default device, I did that when I first got the laptop and as I said I was able to record the streaming sound, now I cannot however and looking at the recording devices, everything is set to default and as the guide shows. I used Roemer software free HiQ recorder because it shows the levels when sound can be detected by the software (the left and right levels move up and down showing that sound is being detected) and nothing is showing there at all. The levels don't move. The built in sound recorder doesn't record anything either and the volume level box is completely empty.
Is their some other setting or properties that has some how switched off or muted or something? I have been through the RealTek HD Audio panel and tested everything. I do have sound, I can listen to music so its not like I have no sound entirely. Also I have an inbuilt microphone in the lid of the laptop and it's on. If I tap the mic hole on the lid you can hear it is on and the sound recorders don't record even the sound of my tapping the mic! Again, I used to be able to record sound and now I cannot! In the living room we have a desktop with the same sound card, RealTek HD Audio on Windows 7 and that records sound as well.

No Sound From Stereo Mix / How To Record From Headphones ?
I have upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 week ago.I use audacity to record audio from stereo mix.But I am not able to record from stereo mix anymore since I upgraded to Windows 7.Because there is no sound coming from Stereo Mix,it used to work before I upgraded to windows 7,I have searched for solutions,tried installing virtual drivers etc. and it has nothing to do with audacity,I am sure that I have configured it right.I have few questions regarding this problem;
-Is there any way to fix the sound issue with Stereo Mix?
-If not,is there any way to record from headphones with audacity,or set headphones as a recording device?
-Any other ways to record audio I am hearing from my headphones with audacity?
I am using : Realtek High Definition Audio,driver version 18.104.22.16882
Virtual XP - No Record & No External Sound?
I tried another forum with this, but didn't have any replies, so I'll try this forum as a last resort before uninstalling it as it's more hassle than it's worth:I have set up a VM. It was working fine yesterday apart from the networking which I now have operative. However:Yesterday the attached USB soundcard was working fine when activated for both playback and record. Today it isn't.t is available in the USB dropdown as unknown device. Attaching it allows me to hear external sounds.Releasing it stops the sounds, so it is being recognised at some level or other.System sounds come through the host machine's sound system.There is only an 'MS RDP Audio Device' in Control Panel|Sounds for playback; there is no record.Yesterday it was a (virtual) Soundblaster with the USB device available as an alternative in both Record and Playback.The USB SC is a good quality device with a combined Mic and Digital input and a stereo output. Although there is a USB expansion card fitted to the host machine, the USB sound device is not on it
Stereo Mix To Record Sound From Card Missing
Im trying to playback audio for sstv through my sound card and the "Stereo Mix" option is missing as an audio input (recording) method. I have some in-product sound card that came from Dell so I've been told it may not be possible. But I've found free software that does record in the same exact way that "Stereo Mix" would. Is there any universal sound drivers out there that would add "Stereo Mix" as an option?
On-line Full Screen Video Sound Distortion
I've gone to Microsoft for help with this issue, been to several tech forums, and even sent a request for help to Adobe Flash Player for help but I have had absolutely NO luck.
Basically this is my problem...I am a student and I just upgraded my Gateway laptop to Windows 7 Home Premium x64-bit for that $30 deal. Everything is running perfectly except my on-line videos.
Every single time I click on "full screen" to maximize the video size I start having sound distortion after about 30 or 40 seconds. I've checked and it's not my browser (I've tried it with Firefox and IE). I went to upgrade my sound driver but I got a message saying that my driver is already up-to-date. I also thought that the problem might be the flash player but I checked on that too and it was also up-to-date.
The best way that I can describe the distortion is that I have this sound that makes all of the noise in the video sound like everything is cracking up under water. Hope that makes sense. Oh, and to make things even worse...I don't have this problem on YouTube. I don't know if YouTube formats their videos in a certain way but I can put videos on Full Screen without the sound distortion. If you'd like an example of the type of videos I'm talking about go to MSN.com and look at the tiny little video that they always have on the left side titled "Video Highlights".
Any help would be greatly appreciated...I really don't know what to do. I have a small bit of understanding of computers but I'm not that tech savvy.
Line In Record With Simultaneously Playback?
I'm trying to record my cell phone messages onto my computer as mp3's. All the audio capture software i've found will do this but, not at the same time 'play' the line in audio (which i need to hear how to control my voice mail system).I can't use a splitter on the audio as it's a crappy old phone and the output is pretty low as-is.

Please check the input device settings and the project template'And I cant record anything.In the built in Windows sound recorder, when I hit record, I get this error 'An audio recording device cannot be found' Everything seems to be functioning perfectly, yet i just cant record anything.
No Sound Device Recognizing?
I have recently installed Win7 Ultimate on my PC - was running Vista Home Premium.Had no problems until last week. I had a BSOD, which surprised me, haven't seen one of those in a while. Major error on my part to not write down all that sais, but there it is.Now I have NO sound at all. Actually, my computer does not recognize the monitor speakers, nor does it recognize external speakers, when I tried using a pair of them instead, nor does it recognize headphones when plugged in to the jack. The computer informs me that the device is simply not plugged in - even though it IS.I have downloaded and updated every driver I can think of to no avail. So I am now at a standstill as to what to do.
Device Connected Sound?
I am having problem with a device connection sound without any device being connected and when the sound pops up, my pc freezes for few seconds and its happening very frequently like every 10 minutes.
Sound Device Not Being Detected
I could really do with some help. Just installed W7 64 but when I come to install drivers it cannot even detect my x-fi SB at all. Thus I cannot install the driver. No sound at all - I am at a loss. Does anyone have a solution? ps I have a ASUS ABN-SLI Nvidia chipset.

HDMI Device In Sound Manager?
I am in the process of setting up my audio preferences but I'm confused about various aspects of Windows 7 audio settings in the Device/sound manager. My computers are part of a Recording Studio setup, and as such, one of my computers has an Maudio 1010lt audio interface card. As my studio is also an entertainment setup, I began to investigate if Win 7 has some kind of audio "profile" manager, whereby I might be able to select various "devices" or outputs that would AUTOMATICALLY be selected when various applications are started. For instance, when I use my DAW(Reaper), I would like Win 7 to automatically select the Maudio card as the IN/OUT as the Maudio outputs(8) are connected to a patchbay, and are normalled to be connected to an analog mixer. However, if I am listening to audio on the net, like Youtube etc, I would like the mobo onboard Stereo(front) outputs to be selected by the OS, as they are connected to a pair of standard computer powered speakers, as I do not want the mixer powered on during regular listening. And then there is the movie thing. Since my mobo has Stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 as well as S/pdif output jacks,(and input), from what I understand, the S/pdif output must be used for Sound Surround as the onboard Realtec chips decode DVD etc to the S/pdif outputs, which I would like to connect to a SoundSurround reciever, with 5.1 speaker setup, of which the front speakers are used for standard Stereo listening..Anyway, as I looked at the Device/Sound manager screen, I saw an "HDMI" device in the list.(see screenshot). Well, I don't have anything in the computer that has an HDMI output. So, I am curious. Can anyone tell me what this "HDMI" device is or what it is referring to?

Audio Device Is Disabled - No Sound At All
I'm on the verge of re-installing Windows. It started earlier today, I'd just installed Call of Duty: World at War off Steam, tried to launch it and it kept crashing. Tried a few things, but nothing worked and read it might be a sound driver issue. Tried updating my ASUS Xonar DX drivers to the latest version, but once the PC had restarted I had no sound and a the speaker on the taskbar said there's no output device installed.
Uninstalled these drivers and tried installing the ones I was using and same problem. I opened up playback devices and the default speakers were my monitor as I connect via HDMI from my graphic card to my main monitor. The "set default" option was greyed out and I couldn't change the default speakers unless I disabled the HDMI audio, but still I had no sound. Tried uninstalling the graphic drivers and re-installing the drivers first, but still nothing. Even when the only audio device was the sound card, there was no sound.
If I troubleshoot, it says the audio device is disabled, even though it isn't. I've checked all the audio services and they're all running. I even tried enabling my onboard audio again, but I still get the same problem of the audio device apparently being disabled. I ran an sfc /scannow, and that fixed a few things, but still no audio. Only thing I can think of doing now is just re-installing Windows.
No Sound Device Installed On Windows 7?
For about 2 weeks ago my battery on my laptop (ASUS Eee PC - Windows 7) got low and the computer turned off. When I turned it on again the sound on the computer didn't work, the sound symbole on the right corner on the bottom has a red X sign. I've just recovered my computer to fabric-new and the sound still doesn't work and the red X symbole is still there.When clicking on the sound symbole with the red X on the right corner in the bottom it says "identifying problem..." and then it says that it couldn't identify the problem... My webcam on the computer doesn't work either after that.On control panel it says "no audio device installed" and when I deleted RealTek and downloaded it again it still doesn't work.

No Sound Drivers Not Installed For Multimedia Device?
I recently upgraded my computer from XP to Windows 7 now I have no sound! In device manager there is a yellow ? mark by multimedia device and PCI input device, which I am sure is an audio card I installed trying to get sound. My system is a Gateway Desktop E - 4100, Sound Blaster Live audio card. Have all ready tried Intel, Gateway and Mircrosoft to locate the newest drivers to fix the multimedia drivers with no luck what so ever. I even payed and downloaded a program to scan and update my computer with the latest driver (DID NOT WORK) and spent hours and hours searching the web to locate the driver.
