/dev/dsp0 should be the 'line in' port with a Sound Blaster Live.
Did you try the other devices?
Did you try to open test1.wav in an audio editor (audacity, sweep,
wavesurfer, ecawave, ...)? Does it contain any data (i. e. low noise)?
Do you use ALSA or OSS driver?
(If unsure try whether '/sbin/lsmod' lists snd-pcm-oss, then it's ALSA
in combination with OSS emulation)
