    Sorry if this is the wrong forum guys.
    Im wanting to know if I can record direct from my headphone jack direct into my mic jack which is situated on the front of my ASUS laptop?
    I am ok recordind from a tape deck to the mic...it works fine using AUDACITY.
    I need to record a Czech radio progran which a friend is being intervied but my sound card wont allow me to record streaming so I am hoping I can go from my Headphone to my mic with a simple piece og cable with the same connecter on each end.
    Thanks to all.

    It's depending on sound card. Most of the sound cards can record even without using connection between headphone and mic jacks. You should check your sound cards properties what it is recording.
    But it should work your way too. Why don't just try. It might be mono though..

    From what I have research previously, my sound card does not support the recording of streaming.
    This is the reason I am hoping I can do it via the Headphone and mic jacks.

    That is possible, at least you have a mixer. But there is no harm if you try it. It works with some sound cards. You can't break anything, if you keep your sound level low.
