Unable to record soun from mic


Hi. I'm having trouble recording .wav files from my microphone. Other than that my soundcard works fine.

The thing is, I record a file but when playing it, there's absolutely no output. Still, when I speak in the mic, I get an output from the speakers. I think I checked evertything; the mixer settings are OK, the driver is working fine (ALSA).

Other than that, I don't know what to check/configure.

I have a Soundblaster Live! with snd-emu10k1 (ALSA). I'm running Mandrake 10.0 Community (linux 2.6.3-4 and KDE 3.2).

Could someone help me?

Thanks in advance.

I am running Fedora 1 with KDE 3.2 and I am having the same problem.
I want to record all my old cassette tapes into ogg-format, so I have a cable from the mic-out on the tape-player to the mic-in on the sound card. The sound plays through the speakers, but I cannot record it using krec. (Or trying some kind of piping from /dev/dsp either).

Any hints?

Well, the sheer quantity of responses really overwhelms me...

I eventually solved my problem by getting ALSA and installing it. After that my sound card began to record and all is well.

My advice: Sound problems = get ALSA and hope. OSS sucks.
