    Recording "What U Hear" not working.


    I am unable to record any audio to my PC. I have tried multiple programs that record from the sound card. What U hear option is listed in settings, but not working. I have tried everything I know adjusting settings uninstalling the sound card driver and software, cleaning the registry. Nothing hs worked so I am out of ideas. Use to work fine, now the exact same problem pops up on 2 PCs at the same time. I wonder if a Windows 10 update has caused this problem. Recording programs tried are Creative Smart Recorder and two different Roxio programs also Audacity. In Creative Smart Recorder I get an error has occurred during monitoring. In Audacity I get error opening recording device, error code 9996 Invalid device. Can anyone help?

    :)

    Audacity and recording "What U Hear"


    I have exactly the same sound card as yours and I don't have any problem recording thru "What U Hear" with Audacity.
    Yes, it might be related because mine shown as Creative.

    There's is a slight problem with Creative driver. Try to disable Enhancements from: Playback devices->Speakers->Properties.

    If you have this option unchecked then sometimes you'll lose the sound. If that's the case, open Device Manager->Sounds, video...->Creative SB X-Fi, just disable it then re-enable again.

    Here's my test with Audacity:

    Audacity and recording "What U Hear"


    When previously on WIN 7 Pro 64 bit I was able to record with Audacity what ever was coming out the speakers using the "What U Hear" feature of my sound card (Creative PCIe X-Fi Titanium).

    Having upgraded and subsequently a clean install of WIN 10 Pro 64 bit this no longer works. I have downloaded the latest Creative driver for the sound card (which shows correctly in Device Manager) right clicking the sound icon in System Tray and selecting "What U Hear" as default recording device same within Audacity itself.

    I have noticed that within Control Panel - Devices and Printers that "What U Hear" actually shows up as a device and I don't recall this being the case with WIN 7. If I right click on this icon - Properties - Hardware - Properties - Driver it shows as a Windows Driver rather than Creative. Could this be the problem.

    Anyone else having problems with Audacity and WIN 10 and specifically recording "What U Hear"?
