Help with USB audio card




Hi all.

I just bought an external USB audio card.  I plugged it into the USB port of my
PC and plugged a 3.5mm jack microphone into the `mic' input of the card.  It is
shown in lsusb:

$ lsusb

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c312 Logitech, Inc. DeLuxe 250 Keyboard

and also in arecord:

$ arecord --list-devices
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC662 rev3 Analog [ALC662 rev3 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 2: ALC662 rev3 Alt Analog [ALC662 rev3 Alt Analog]

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 2: Device [USB PnP Sound Device], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Besides, I ran alsamixer, selected the USB card and unmuted everything.  But
then, when I try to record, no sound is recorded.  I do:

 $ sox -t alsa hw:2,0 output.wav

, or

 $ arecord -f S16_LE -D hw:2,0 -r 96000 test.wav

, or also within Audacity.  But nothing, my voice is not recorded.  Please help
whoever can.

Thanks,

Rodolfo
