Hi I'm running windows vista home premium.
my problem is that A.) I seem to get the feeling my computer isn't recognizing my audio card (maybe im paranoid) but when i goto device manager and i goto audio all i see is the sigma tel CODEC. I dont see like a sound card or anything.
. When i try to record with Audacity, i cant because even though i've got something plugged into either the mic, rear mic, or line it, it wont find it. Now, i've looked in my audio settings and when i plug into one of those spots the computer says its working and enabled.
I've also noticed that in my audio settings it doesnt find any sound cards, just the sigma tel codec, is that supposed to happen?
Based on what my Dell packing slip says, I've got Creative Sound Blaster HD Audio, wouldnt that be a sound card, not just a CODEC?
I dont really understand what a CODEC is anyway.
If anyone can help me out here that would be really appreciated.
