Ok, I've read the thread that has the software thats for recording stuff, but it isn't helping me.

So I was wondering what software is easy to use that I can record my guitar songs/riffs that can add some effects maybe.

I have an adapter for my guitar that lets me plug it in to the mic port on the computer. I have audacity, but it won't recognize the adapter so it won't record anything. So far the tests i've been doing with it have been through Camtasia 6 and it's pretty annoying.

So again if someone could help me out with picking a recording software that would be most helpful.
