I must be doing something wrong, because although I have no trouble hearing the radio and cds on my computer, I get nothing when I try the proceedure you suggested for recording.
Is it possible that Nero 8 is not set up correctly? I used to record many old LPs etc to CD using sound blaster, but since I have this new computer with Nero 8, I can't seem to record anything.
Any suggestions?

Nero 8 is a bit hard to install. Sometimes, one would have to clean the registry. Nero site should offer some help; if not, post your question in their Forum site.
