I believed that is as it should be. What are you trying to accomplish? You need to capture the audio before playing it back.
O/S Windows XP
Record deck connected to pre-amp - connected to line in on PC - when playing a record no sound from speakers.
Checked volume control - Recording - line in checked - volume 1/2
Playback - volume 1/2 on line in
I think I've updated drivers on sound card
Have connected lead from pre-amp to hi-fi and everything OK
- any suggestions ?
