Is there any way i can record what my speakers hear while my mic jack is occupied? It seems like my computer can only record one or the other. Also, when i use a cable to go from my headphone jack to line in, my computer can still only record from one, and i cannot hear my microphone. Is there anyway i can record everything my speakers play while still being able to use my mic?
I dont have a sound card, just what is on my motherboard. 1 line in, 1 mic, 1 headphone/speaker.

Re: Line in / Mic jack help
So we're talking PC here, right?
I don't understand what you want to record. Going from the PC Headphone jack to the PC Line IN might be unwise in order to prevent a feedback loop. External (non-PC) source and PC MIC might work but you would probably want to monitor it on headphones again because of possibe feedback.
Does your MIC work?
Right click the speaker icon again and select Adjust Audio Properties or open Control Panel and select Sounds & Audio Devices. Select the box to place the icon on the Taskbar for future use.
Right click on the little speaker icon in your Taskbar and select Open Volume Control, if it's there. From there you're on your own. I have a sound card so I don't know what you will see. Look around, there may be a bunch of audio outputs and inputs with Master and individual volume & balance controls plus one for your Mic. Make sure it's not muted.

A local computer store or Radio Shack should have a splitter that you can use for that. I also have speakers into those connectors and needed a splitter to also connect a headset for online game matches. Should be under $8.
Ensure that you have selected the Microphone or the Line-in as your recording input. It sounds like you have set STEREO MIX as the recording input. Double click your speaker, select from the drop down "Properties" then Adjust volume for (RECORDING) select that and ensure that your appropriate recording device is selected. (XP)
First you'll need to know if your mic is dynamic or requires phantom power. The DP-01 does not provide phantom power, but the DP-01FX and the DP01-FX/CD units have the option of turning on phantom power for their two XRL mic jacks. The DP-01 simply has 1/4" jacks for mics. Typically if your mic comes with a 1/4" plug it will be dynamic, but that isn't always true.
Plug it into the mic/line jack in the front of the unit and turn up the input volume knob. Then depending on which of the two inputs you used you'll have to press the Assign button (A or B) and then the rec button over one of the tracks and turn up the track fader. You'll also need to insure that the master fader is turned up and you should then be able to see the meters moving when speaking into the mic and hear the output in your headphones.
To record simply press the rec button on the assigned track again (it will light steady) to arm the track for recording and press the play and record together.
i think that audio jack is for headphone-microphone combined (those cable plugs have a three black lines , top for left audio, center for right audio, last line for microphone)
so you can use a headphones with mic directly with this 5500.
the mic is i said before is the last line.
what you need is a monophone plug.
i dont think stereo mic will work.
