I have a new HP 8740w which has Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on it. I have just discovered that there is no WaveOut, for recording, via checking the recording tab within the Sound Applet in the Control Panel. I understand this could be a deliberate ploy on the part of the manufacturers to stop users recording "playbacks" as pressured by the music industry. However in my case I am simply trying to use some Music Mixing software on my own music.
Any thoughts on how to recover a WavOut record option? Is this the same as "Rec Playback" which is showing as "Currently Unavailable" on my laptop. Also I have "Show Disabled" and "Show Disconnected" devices ticked.
Thanks in advance,
