I had same problem with Soundblaster 5.1 Live.

Look at that page:
http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=emu10k1

Here is the specific advice (quote from the page above) that worked for me:

Quote:
Recording from line/mic/cd(analog):
In alsamixer, set Capture to something reasonable (I have 53) and *hit space bar* to enable Capture. Then set the volume for the
source you want, and hit spacebar for capture on that too. I have AC97 set to zero and AC97 Capture set to 100, not sure if this does anything, but mic/line/cd recording now works for me. - Jared 20020910

Well, more detail would help. What did you do in your alsamixer? Did you read other advice for your card?
