I just installed Windows 7, and I'm loving it so far. However, I am having a slight issue with my Creative X-Fi Titanium (Newegg.com - Creative 70SB088000004 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express 1x Interface PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium - Sound Cards
My Headset: Newegg.com - Creative FATAL1TY 3.5mm gold-plated Circumaural Gaming Headset
First, my Line-in connection doesn't seem to work. When I open up the 'Recording Devices' tab under the Sound dialog, and breath into my mic or make noise, none of the volume bars go up. I've already checked and my headset is in fact plugged into the correct port. Playback is working fine. The current drivers
installed via a Windows Update are '126.96.36.1993' published on '7/15/2009'.
Under the 'FlexiJack' option under my Audio Control Panel from Creative, I've been able to select the 'Microphone' Radio Button and get my mic to work. Unfortunately, doing this seems to get rid of the 'What U Hear' feature.
Even though I can get my mic to work, I'd like to find a way to keep the 'What U Hear' feature. Are my drivers the problem? Could my headset be damaged? The latter seems unlikely since I can get my mic working through the 'Audio Control Panel' from Creative. Thanks.
