I have been using a USB mic form a webcam for a while, but it had wayt o much backround noise so i decided to plug a mic into ny soundcard (Xfi Extreme Gamer)
i pluged it in and noticed that it was recording and playing back my voice whithout me doing anything! this is very frustrating! i looked into the control pannel and noticed the little cross, and the word "REC" in red. so i figured id click it and it would shut off but it dosnt! it only gives me the option to enable "+20dB boost"
is there anyway i can stop it recording and playing back instantly? (i think thats what its doing) am i potting the microphone into the wrong jack? im not sure.
this is a picture of what i was talking about with the cross, and red "rec"
