You need to install recording software on your PC.
Such as the software linked below:

You will need Male Stereo Audio Cable and Audacity

On your sound card, connect one end to the green / out put port and another end connect to the line in port - I think the mic port should work too.

This will record what you are playing on the PC.

One expert said: To record from the audio card on your PC, you should enable the Stereo Mix mix option, if it is not yet enabled...

To enable Stereo Mix (in Vista/Win7):
open the Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording tab
OR Right-click the audio icon in your system tray and go to “Recording Devices” to open up the proper settings pane.
If you can't see Stereo Mix in the pane, right-click on a blank area, and make sure both “View Disabled Devices” and “View Disconnected Devices” options are checked.  Stereo Mix option should now appear


But I never have found "Stereo Mix" in my computer based on these configuration steps. A friend said that my PC does not has that hardware, so it cannot work in my PC. Do you think so ?

If you don't have the correct audio chipset drivers then you wont be able to see Stereo Mix.
