    I have NVIDIA Quadro FX 1300 sound card with an Intel 82801GB LPC
    motherboard and running Windows XP. I'm capturing video, using an old
    consumer camera as a deck - JVC GR-DVL 120U. I don't have the video
    editing software that I want yet so I'm just capturing using Windows
    Movie Maker. When I preview during capture, I see the video on the
    computer monitor but only hear the sound through the video camera.
    Does anybody know how to make the sound come out through my computer
    sound card (Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS)?

    Thanks,

    Liz

    Is this by any chance a SVHS camcorder? Are you by any chance using an
    S-video cable (4-pin mini-DIN) to connect to the capture card? If
    this is the case, remember that the S-video cable carries video only,
    no audio at all, and you must connect separate audio cable(s) from the
    camcorder to the capture card (and/or the audio card).

    If you have the appropriate cables for both video and audio connected
    from camcorder to computer: Does the video file you capture contain
    audio...does the audio play back from the computer via MediaPlayer or
    the NVIDIA's software? If so, then the problem is that your audio
    playback controls ("loudspeaker" icon on the taskbar) or record
    controls do not have the correct input selected to monitor audio coming
    in.
