Fraps doesn't record sound

I have an x-Fi titanium PCIe card, trying to figure out why fraps doesn't record sound in games. I have the creative volume control panel installed, but I don't know what settings to mess with. Thanks.

As far as I know to get Fraps to record audio you have to set it to "What U Hear" in the Windows/Creative controls under Recording as the default recording device (and depends on which driver you have installed as to whether the option is there).
