I have been trying to use a variety of programs (SoundGadget Pro, Goldworks, CD Recorder) to convert sound samples from CD (using the CD player from Win95) into wav files. I am using an HP 5040 120 MHz computer with a HP monitor (the microphone is built into the monitor). The system is using a CS4232 Audio Device driver. The problem i am having is that all of these programs are recording the cd through the microphone in the monitor rather than 'internally'. When I disconnect the microphone I get no sound, but when it is connected the resulting wav consists of room noise as well as the cd track which plays through the speakers. Other than disconnecting the microphone, which is not working, I don't know what else to do. I would appreciate any help you can offer.
