    soundblaster live record what you hear
    the record what you hear doesn't show in play control options
    creative soundblaster live p3 800
    why could it be it works on my other comp
    which i don't use online so doesn't have latest updates,
    i'm wondering if a windows update caused it
    i have uninstalled reinstalled both with windows update
    uninstalled reinstalled with creative software i got with the soundcard
    everything works fine other than this minor inconvenience but
    it bugs me so if anyone knows why please let me know thanks

    I would suggest, if you are trying to record, upgrading to professional audio cards. Sound Blaster just doesn't cut it for good quality recordings. M-Audio offers products from $80-$500, from usb to firewire. This combined with Cakewalk or many other progs, will get you studio quality recordings. Fruityloops, cubase, protools (the industry standard).
    Not sure if that is the direction you wanted to go.
    Try posting in Audio recording forums or SB forums if they have them.

    When you reinstalled teh Creative drivers, did you use the ones from teh CD or did you download the latest from the site?

    I suggest you try the latter.
