    Sound Recording Mixer will not open in Vista for Line In recording

    The Sound Recording Mixer will not open in Vista for Line In recording. I
    tried installing the drivers for my Soundblaster but still don't get
    anything. Does anyone have any ideas? I tried double clicking the speaker
    icon but it doesn't work because it only opens the playing mixer that just
    has 2 sliders on it for Main and Apps volume. There is no option anywhere for
    switching to the Recording mixer.
    Has the Record Mixer been removed because they want the Windows Sound
    Recorder to be used exclusively now? The problem is the Sound Recorder
    doesn't record MP3's.

    Click on the Start Orb and type "services.msc" in the Start/Search box and
    hit Enter. Scroll down the list of services to Windows Audio and see if the
    service is started and set to Automatic.
