MusCAudio Devices are showing up instead of my real audio devices

II have installed the trials of both camtasia and adobe captivate.  I have a Bose sound system on this PC with a creative suite for sound controls, etc.

In both camtasia and captivate, I cannot record from the microphone because I keep getting a list of MusCAudio Devices showing up in my audio device lists instead of my real audio devices.

I need to be able to get my microphone to show up in this list.  Usually it shows Mic Line 2 in or something of that nature.

ok
check in device manager if the sound card is installed without error.
in xp, look first in the sound applet>audio tab if your sound card is selected

Prior to this install "camtasia and adobe captivate" - was it normal?
then you can try to uninstall them, or use a sytem restore to a prior date

If your sound card (which will do the recording) is not in the sound recording list then it needs to be re-installed. I don't see why a microphone would show up as a recording device, even if it's digital it doesn't do the recording, the sound card does.

Prior to the install of camtasia a captivate it wasn't normal. I tried to track down when we couldn't record correctly anymore. In Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 I can select to use the creative card, but no where else can I seem to find it.

@nobus, the bose usb is selected for playback, not recording. Creative does not appear in any of the drop lists. I am reinstalling the driver now. I'll get back in a second with updates with that.

updating the driver can work - possible one of the other installs has changed it's settings
but you may have a dying card too.
