I have hooked up my mindisc recorder to my pc. I have a sounblaster live soundcard. I have enabled Line in, but
I can't seem to get any sound out of the minidisk.

Why??

Is it actually possible to just use your pc soundcard and speakers as througput of the sound signal. Without recording anything, that is.

Or is it necessary to use software like soundforce to first record the sound onto my pc before I can play it back??

Yes. Make sure that the line in isn't muted in the Windows sound options.

How have you 'hooked it up' ?

The best way to go through line in is with a headphone jack on the Minidisc player/recorder and then of course to the line in.

Found it!!

My sound blaster live has a mixer in the audio HQ. I had enabled Line in, in the "Playback Control" but there is also a "Record Control".
Switching this on nearly gave me a heart attack and the music poured out. :thumb:
