You can record through your computer by selecting the "Stereo Mix" option in 
the Volume Control. 
Hold down the Windows key and then press the letter R. Once here, type 
"sndvol32" (without the quotes) and press enter. Then press the Alt key and 
then press the down arrow to go to Properties and press enter. Tab until you 
get to the radio button that says "adjust volume for recording." Tab to the 
"show the following volume controls" list box and make sure that Stereo Mix is 
checked. Then tab to the OK button and press enter. Then if you tab, you should 
come to something that says stereo mix balance and then tab again and there 
should be stereo mix volume. Tab one more time and there should be a select 
checkbox. Make sure this is checked and then press alt F4. Now you should be 
able to record from your computer.
