won't playback in 2.0.5

with windows xp.
The input levels are only working on the green pair–no red.

When I try to play anything the green meters are going but no sound is emitted. Ditto recording/editing–it performs the task but you’ve got to play it in another program like itunes in order to hear it.

I’'ve been using it no problems for about half year, so suspect it’s about the new version.

Have tried disconnecting amp, checked devices volume settings, default sigmatel ok, no prob sound itunes/mixcraft/utube, etc.

I did install a new modem a couple of days ago.

A related problem–it doesn’t list my amp in devices. Don’t know if this is recent or not as i’ve previously only recorded vocals on audacity (record guitar and most vocals in mixcraft).

Have uninstalled and reinstalled.

any ideas would be appreciated.

Try http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_recording_troubleshooting.html#flatline .

Reinstalling Audacity won’t change anything unless you also check (tick) the box that says “Reset Preferences”. See http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#reset .

Is you amplifier really seen as an audio device in Windows? Please describe exactly what playback and recording equipment is connected to the computer and exactly how you record your guitar.

If you connect a USB or Firewire device after you started Audacity, use Transport > Rescan Audio Devices in Audacity so that Audacity picks the new device up.
