    could someone please tell me the exact name(measurements etc) of the cable I need to connect from my guitar fx unit(pod) to the mic input on the back of my computer, so I can record guitar.

    I need to know the name of it so I can walk into a shop(tandy electronics) and buy it.

    thankyou

    Just say the Pod-outputs are 1\4 inch jacks and your soundcard
    is a stereo headphone jack.

    Yeah,
    You'll have a bit of impedance matching to do!!!!
    Maybe u should use the line input of your soundcard.

    You should have 2 inputs. One is the Mic and one is the Line-in.
    You should probably use the Line-In.

    ah, ok so at the moment my modem is connected to the line in.
    so I should disconnect the modem and use the line-in to record guitar.

    I'm learning:D
