  1. Hi,

    I have an Acer 661 laptop running Windows XPPro with a Realtek AC97 soundcard and it doesn't want to record from the cd rom drive. All settings appear to be ok ie recording source checked. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why not just use Windows Media Player to rip the CD tracks into WMA/MP3 format? The record source & all that should be irrelevent

    Yeah, fine for wma files but I need to record to .wav file for use in programs that only recognise .wav format!

    On my pc with sounblaster card win.98 all works fine, and what i'm really trying to get to the bottom of is whether it's an ac97 thing or a windows xp thing????
