    I am using a Sound Blaster PCI 512 sound card with Win XP. I can't get any signal from line input. The card works fine with sound from the computer (i.e., on line radio station). I have gone to Roxio Audio Central and set the recording source to Line Input. My source is a stereo receiver and I am using the Tape Output on the receiver as the source. There is no other output jack.

    I notice on the Sound Blaster web site that WinXP is not listed as a supported OS. Could this be the problem? Am I in the market for a new sound card?

    Thanks for any help.

    Don

    Try and see if your microphone jack on your sound car will record. You could just use a mic to test it or maybe even run the tape output into it. If this doesnt work then you probably need a new sound card. I doubt this is an XP driver problem, you might just want to get a new one due to the fact that they are not that expensive.

    Boy, do I feel stupid!! After some more checking I find the problem is not the card. It has to do with the receiver somehow. All other inputs to it (CD player, its' tuner) work just fine. It's the cassette player that I can't get a signal from. The cassette player plays OK through the receiver, I just don't get any signal at the sound card when I have the receiver set to the cassette player.

    Onward and upward!!
