    This is kind of an odd request.. But is there anyway that you can make it so your music output can be played on your music input? Example. I play a song in Winamp or any audio program.. I want that song to come out as what I'm recording on my microphone. So if I play a song, and go into sound recorder and click record, what will come out is the music I'm playing. Again, I know. Odd. But if anyone can help me with this, I'd be very greatful :D.

    Connect the LINE-OUT to the MIC connection on the audio card. Radio Shack should have the 3 wire 2.5mm cable to do the trick.

    Hmm.. I have this thing that is used to connect the mic on my card to a mic on the speaker. Basically, a mic extention cord. This should work right? I tried it, but no luck yet.. Maybe it needs some fiddling and such.

    I think the problem is that it's only 2 wire.. And I need 3 I suppose =/.

    I'm guessing there's no program that can do what I'm asking, right? ^^;

    Good point about the mic being mono and using the stereo jack. How about a cheap second sound card? Then you'll have a speaker out and a line in, as long as you connect everything correctly. :)
