Windows 7: No Stereo Mixer in Recording Devices

28 Feb 2012   #1

No Stereo Mixer in Recording Devices

I have Windows 7 Pro SP1 32 bit laptop.
It's a ThinkPad Lenovo T60p by IBM.

I've been searching google for ever and ever but I cannot find a fix.

Here is a screenshot of my Recording Devices:

I found this via Google: • Stereo Re-mix thread (was T61/p Sound Recording?)
And I have no idea what it means but it looks like it has some information on this subject.

I'm not sure what other information you need - feel free to ask and I will reply (bookmarking this page)
Thanks in advance.

Some sound cards do NOT support stereo mix, regardless of settings.

You can try older drivers--XP or Vista--in compatibility mode. That works in some cases.

If not, you would need to buy another internal or external sound card that is known to support stereo mix in Windows 7.

This thread suggest that the sound card does not support stereo mix. You can get it to show in recording devices but you still can't use it.

You could try the fix if you like but it doesn't sound like it will help. On mine it says unavailable but when I set it as default it works.

What are you trying to do anyway?
