[Help] Recording Podcast wtih XENYX Q802USB to Adobe Audition
So here is everything in my setup involving the mixer:

Here is the Audition settings:

I'm admittedly a little novice at this and just trying to simply record my voice in Adobe Audition. I have Audition on the MME interface with USB Codec playback and recording.

My computer isn't recognizing the sound at all.

Is the 'Main Mix' knob turned up so you get an indication on the VU meter LED's above the 'Main Mix' knob when speaking into the mic?

I believe the '2-TR to MIX' button should be up/out and the '2-TR to CTRL ROOM' can be in to hear playback via USB. The position of the '2-TR to CTRL ROOM' switch may affect where the VU meter LED's get indication from.

It looks like you have cable from the 'CTRL ROOM OUT' jacks going back to a MIC/LINE input(?) of the computer. What is this doing? I don't think you need it unless you can explain otherwise.

I just tried a Xenyx X1204 USB with Audacity with the MME and USB CODEC settings you are using and it worked OK
