You CANT enchant anything with an empty soul gem. In order to fill a soul gem, you need an empty one in your inventory (no need to hotkey it or doing anything with it, just have it in your inventory).
You have to have the ability to "soul trap", whether through spell casting or an enchanted weapon that has the soul trapping ability. Once you kill a CREATURE, not a human, you will absorb its soul (it will be pretty obvious because this blue energy stuff
starts swirling around you.
You can capture human souls but you must have a black soul gem for that.
I'M PRETTY SURE THAT I U S E D AN EMPTY SOUL GEM TO ENCHANT MY ITEMS. I'M NOT ASKING IF I COULD USE THEM. I KNOW I USED ONE AND IT WORKED. SO, I WANT TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN USING EMPTY ONES AND UN-EMPTY ONES. THANK YOU. :)
It might have been that the one you used was already filled with a soul, I have used a few that have been pre filled i have found, Im in the same boat now have only empty ones which i cant use as I dont have the skill to trap souls yet.
