    Hi all. Since i have installed windows 7 64 bit home premium on my computer, Camtasia studio doesn't reocrd audio from my Saitek GH20 headset, and widnows cant seem to find the device anywhere. I have downloaded and reinstalled the realtek HD audio Driver, and have looked for a driver for my headphones but cant find one anywhere. I have tried everything i can think of.
    :(
    Thanks
    Ash

    I am not exactly sure what you want to record, but you might right click the speaker icon and select Recording devices.

    Check the window and see if a Stereo Mix or something like that is listed. If not, right click and check Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices to see if it shows up.

    If you find it, perhaps you will be able to record from it. That device is basically a record what you hear type operation.

    Also, if you check the communications tab, there might be a setting there you could use if your headset is considered a communications device.

    I had this same problem with using my M-Audio FastTrack USB recording device on ProTools 8. This solved my problem:

    1. Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Manage Audio Devices\Recording.
    2. Select the correct recording device.
    3. Click [Set Default] and [OK].
    4. Restart ProTools.
