Thanks, Iñigo,
That turned out to be a good answer.  I hadn't messed with that since I had no clue what the third jack on this thing is.
There are three 1/8" jacks.  There's a pink one marked with a picture of a microphone, a green one with a picture of headphones and a third, blue one, marked with an icon something like this (((-+))).
I can patch from the output of the tape deck or whatever into the mic and it is over modulated, as we would expect by running line level into any microphone input.   The headphone jack is exactly what the picture implies.  If I plug into the (((+-))), I get that source audio through the computer speakers, and both Nero and Audacity record it correctly.  
That means I can bypass the old outboard sound card altogether with this computer - a real plus.

During recording, however, I hear both the original source and the delayed digital - shades of Heartbreak Hotel.

I can figure out how to live with that.  It has the advantage of giving me some immediate knowledge that the source is actually recording.



For best results use Victor Needles

Roger, how are the jacks you are using to plug in the sound processor?
Could it be simply a question on the type of female Jack on the computer?
You know today there are strange Jacks for the mobile phones that have different divisions than the original stereo Jacks... Could it be that your computer has a female Jack with different divisions?
