This not being able to record in Vista seemingly doesn't bother a lot
of folk.  I wonder, is it that others have found the way around it but
are keeping quiet in case Microsoft's listening?  Maybe they don't
want to own up to recording stuff this way, but for personal use I
don't see the problem.  You've had no reply from the Goldwave people

Wonder too if Apple users are faced with the same sort of thing.  If
they don't, then it Sure is one reason one might consider switching to
the Mac!

I'll be interested too to see if this post makes it as all my attempts
to reply to Jamie's post re. RNIB and web radio boxes simply don't
make it to the list.  (I've sent Jamie a copy of this unseen message
to this list personally.)

Hi Ray.

I followed the instructions, but unfortunately , it did not assist me
Caroline told me to go into Sound/Recording and look for other
devices.  I
did this but only got one more Line-In function, associated to the
computer's internal card.

I've got my Soundblaster set as the default and I can listen to the
Player and listen to music files using GoldWave, but as yet, I cannot
find a
way of getting GW to record audio streams.

This is so frustrating and disappointing Ray.  If I cannot resolve
issue, I'll need to consider removing VISTA and installing XP Media

Best wishes.
