Hey all, Ok forgive this lame-O question. I am trying to hook up a sound recording and editing program to my mac. The instuctions say to plug the cable from my stereo to the "in line" on my computer? The problem is that I see nothing that says "in line" or "input"? The closest thing I can think of would be the headphone jack, but that's an output? I need to find out how to plug into my sound card so I can transfer sound into my mac from an outside source?

If it helps I have a mac G4 Laptop. Any help would really be appreciated!

Cheers!

EG.

Do you have an iBook or a PowerBook?

If you have an iBook, I have some bad news for you... the iBook doesn't have a Line In. I think it was pretty lame of Apple not to include one, but there you go.

I got myself one of these.

It's good because it handles Optical and Analogue line-in as well. It works well.

On the other hand, if you've got a PowerBook, the line in is right beside the headphone jack (they're the same size port).
