How to open Windows Mixer?

I want to record sme old vinyl records using a USB turntable and software called Cakewalk Pyro. It usually works fine but some records top out too loud. Actually, I can adjust the recording volume using Windows Mixer. If I click on "Open Windows Mixer" from within Pyro and I get the message "There is a problem with your sound hardware. To install mixer devices go to Control Panels, click Printers and Other Hardware and click Add Hardware." Because I dont want to add any new hardware and only open Windows Mixer, I dont know what to do? Can anyone please help. Thanks.

Take out your XP CD and then put it into your player but dont let it start up. After that go to Start > Run > type in msconfig and then Enter > Click on Expand File > Restore from > Browse to sndvol32.exe on the XP CD. After that Restore it to c:\windows\system32 overwriting the file if necessary. Check if this works now.

Re: How to open Windows Mixer?

I found Windows Mixer in Windows System32 folder and I went to Properties and then in "Adjust volume for" clicked the Recording button. Somebody told there should be a Line in box there to check. I have only MIDI Synth, S/PDIF-In, CD Digital, Analog Mix, Microphone and Wave. Also in Device Manager there is a yellow question mark beside "Other devices" and under that, a yellow question mark with a yellow circle and black exclamation point on top of it for Multimedia Audio Controller. Any ideas?

I have normally used Windows Media Player for recording albums from my vey old amp line output to computer. The cord has 2 RCA jacks to the small one that fits portable CD players and your computer input. It is the only experience I have on this.
