Audio Stream recorded thru Microphone instead directly (SoundMAX)

2008-04-04, 22:13 PM
Hi all,

I have a Lenovo X61 Tablet PC, preinstalled is WinXP. The audio device is SoundMAX.

Now I want to record audio stream from internet radio stations.

Unfortunately the recorders I installed and tested show all only in "recording device" the microphone, and it make all recordings thru the mic.

I can't switch to another driver or so. There is no choice of an alternative driver in Properties - Mixer Device.
Also muting the Mic doesn't help.

Then I installed Realtek but It doesn't show up in the device manager.

I also tried to update SoundMAX: No updates available.

In all other machines from IBM so far I had never this problem and I can't believe having to deal with this in the year 2008! with a brandnew machine loaded with such an apparently outdated audio driver.

Very thankful for some suggestions.

HAWI

You can blame the RIAA, which has been hassling laptop suppliers for some time now over providing anything other than microphone recording capability in current systems.

You may get into System Update, and install Sound driver. Everything should be fine.
