I'm trying to figure out how I can record to my hard drive a live streaming radio station that is playing thorugh Windows Media Player (version 10)? Will I need to purchase software or is there a free workaround for this without taking up a lot of hard drive space?
In case this helps, the sound card i'm using is a SB Audigy II.
Thanks in advane!

You can use Windows Movie Maker 2 to record internet streams (if you have Windows XP it comes with it as Windows Movie Maker 1 and then freely upgraded with service pack 2. If you have service pack 2 installed you will have Movie Maker 2). If you load it up and go through the motions of recording from a microphone but change the source until you get the one with the sound. You will have to adjust the sound levels to get them loud enough. I think you change the source through the advanced menu on the microphone record function.
P.S Sorry if this post is a little vague, I am not able to open up movie maker where I am and so cannot give better instructions.
