i have recently wired a stereo and mixer up to my computer into the mic in (the red slot) on my sound card and the stereo into the speaker port on my sound card, the mixer and stereo and everything else is set up properly and working fine and all the sounds from the computer are going but i cant get to record on my computer, whatever recording software i use, when i try to record on it it comes up with an error saying : bad input device... or error opening audio device for input...or error while opening sound device please check input device setting and project sample rate...or an audio recording device cannot be found... i am on windows 7, in the sounds section on the control panel no other devices are showing apart from my speakers... anyone know what i have to do to get to record on my computer please?
