Playing along with protools "HELP"

How do you play along with pre-recorded tracks to get a feel for what you want to play on a new track without recording it. I have the new track inputed digitally and when I
press play I can't hear the sound anymore. Please Help.

PT7.x = activate the "I"nput button only. It will turn green.
When you're ready to record activate the "R"ecord button. It will turn red.

If you're using PT 6.x
- Go to the "Operations" window and check "Input Only Monitor".

PT 7.x
On the Mixer screen, above the volume fader on each audio track there are 2 buttons R & I.
- Activate the "I"nput button only on the channel you're inputting. It will turn green.

When you're ready to record activate the "R"ecord button. It will turn red.

I'm using protools le 7. above the fader I'm only seeing the solo, mute, and record buttons. Not an I button. Werd?? There is the input setting button where I set my digital input. Is that what you are refering to. If so I still can't hear any audio from that channel when I'm playing back my recorded material.
