Windows 7: Audacity. Sound recording doesn't works.

06 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise x64
Audacity. Sound recording doesn't works.

I use Audacity v1.3.11
My OS is Windows 7 32bit.
My sound card is Creative X-FI SB Xtreme Gamer with newest drivers.
In Control Panel/Sound -> Playback there are 3 types of audio output (underlined one is set to be default) Speakers. Creative SB X-Fi ; SPDIF Out Creative SB X-Fi; Speakers PnP Audio Device
In "Recording" tab there are these: Microphone Creative SB X-Fi; Auxiliary Creative SB X-Fi; Line-In Creative SB X-Fi; "What U Hear" Creative SB X-Fi; Microphone PnP Audio Device; Line PnP Audio Device; CD PnP Audio Device.

I want to record some audio from internet-radio, but Audacity doesn't record any sound when I push record button. Level meters shows nothing (both input and output). This began to happen after I reinstalled Windows. Before that, everything worked fine. This is second day of trying to find the way to solve the problem and to make it work. This forum is my last hope.

Any suggestions? I'd appreciate it if someone helps me
