Phone Call Recorders

Bzzzzz. You know those Radio Shack devices for recording phone calls? When I hook one up to a tape recorder, it works fine. But it's the damndest thing: hooked up to my computer, it buzzes. Is this an electric grounding issue, or is there something I'm doing wrong?

are you plugging it into the mic-in or line-in?

I have a port that switches between line-in and mic-in mode. I want line-in, right?

Unfortunately, you do not have the right device. You need one that provides electrical isolation like this one.

Here's more info on the isolation issue.
