M-Audio Transit

I am using a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista SP1 as OS. I am using Audacity 1.3.9.
I have attempted to record using an Internet stream, using the M-Audio Transit as sound card. Although I can hear the sound through headphones attached to the Transit USB device, when I open up Audacity and attempt to monitor the sound there is no signal. I have no problems if I alter the Preferences and Audio I/O to the sound card ie Stereo Mix for Input and Loudspeakers for output I get no problems. Any ideas on what to do so that I can record and listen to the recordings using the Transit device?


Most of the M-Audio line uses ASIO drivers. Audacity doesn’t directly support ASIO because they keep wanting to be paid for it.



Does this mean Audacity cannot play through the M-Audio device ?
