Hello Jim,

It's a while since I had a sound blaster installed, so this
is from 
memory, and some details may be not accurate.

I find it easier to use the Windows mixer.

1. left windows key, R for run, then type: sndvol32 and
press enter.

2.  you need to go to the Propperties page, press left-alt
and arrow 
down to propperties, then press enter.  Alt-p should take
you straight their.


3. You should be focused on the list of audio devices, so
arrow to 
the creative sound card, and tab once.

4. from the pair of radio buttons, select recording.
Playback is the 
other option then tab to the list of recording volume
controls to be 
shown to you.  Then arrow through the list, checking the
ones you 
want to use.  You will want Line-in, and if it is still
available on 
this model of card, a function which is called "what you
hear."

5. Tab to the OK button, and action it.

you can tab through the recording volume and balance
controls, and 
check boxes to select or not select the inputs and the what
you hear output.


If you are not hearing what you are recording, first load an
audio 
file and establish that this plays through goldwave.

If it does, then you should be out of trouble.  If it does
not, then 
repeat the first 2 steps, instead of selecting the recording
radio 
button, select playback.

Make sure that the master volume levels is high enough, and
not 
muted.  Do the same for the Wav volume.

When done, alt-f4 to close the windows mixer.

Sorry this is so sketchy, but I hope it is of some use.  A
brighter 
candle than me will doubtless shine more light on this for
you.

Regards,






.
