You want to record audio tapes? You need to convert the headphone output into a higher impedance output to plug into a microphone plug of a tape recorder. If you just use a cable to connect the headphone output to a microphone input you may have distortion because of impedance matching problems. You'll find if you turn the computer volume down nearly all the way it will work OK, but if you want to preserve the fidelity of the sound it is better to match impedance.
All you need for this is to either buy a cable which is meant to convert line out to mic in, or, just use some resistors.
which uses a 100 ohm resistor and a 10 k resistor. For stereo you will need 2 of these, the outer case of the wire is shared by both circuits, and will play the role of the bottom wire in that drawing for both the inner wires playing the role of the top wire (hope that's clear, if not, anyone knowing a little electronics will be able to help you).
I think you are using Windows XP. Go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Volume Control See if there is slider for Microphone & Mute button. If it is not then go to Options - Properties in Volume Control Menu Make a check mark against Microphone. Say OK. You will find the Microphone slider & Mute button. Remove the check mark against Mute if it is there & advance the Microphone slider control to your required level. Your microphone is ready for use.
Some computers have a special jack labeled line in. If your computer does not have a line in jack, you can use the microphone jack. You can then adjust the volume of the device in control panel under sound options. The headphone jack is only for output. I have seen some computers where you plug in a cable to the microphone jack and you will be asked what kind of device it is.
 --> Right Click the Volume Icon at the bottom right corner of your screen [The Task bar].  --> Click [Playback Devices]  --> Right Click the [Speakers] Icon and click Properties  --> Click the [Levels] Tab; and there you will see the Microphone Volume slider (The one at the very bottom of the "HD Audio output" and "PC Beep" sliders where you can un-mute the mic playback (By clicking the unmute icon, than slide the volume up to where you prefer it... Simple I hope I was able to help someone with this...
This is the issue regarding the Internal Microphone in the Computer.
Your contacts cannot hear you, until you have enabled the Microphone in the Computer.
You will find the information to enable the Microphone below:
1) Double-click on the Volume Control.
2) Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu.
3) Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section. Click the OK button. Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.
1) Right Click the Volume Icon at the bottom right corner of your screen [The Task bar]. 2) Click [Playback Devices].3) Right Click the [Speakers] Icon and click Properties.4) Click the [Levels] Tab; and there you will see the Microphone Volume slider (The one at the very bottom of the "HD Audio output" and "PC Beep" sliders where you can un-mute the mic playback. Windows 7: 1) Click on Start (the Windows icon) and type sound.2) Click on Sound under Control Panel.3) Click on Recording tab. Select Microphone and click on Properties.4) Click on Levels tab. The default Microphone Boost is set to 0. Increase it.5) Close all the dialog boxes, and the microphone will be ready for use. Hope this helps.
If you are running Windows XP or VISTA, "right click" the speaker icon in the lower right part of your desktop. It is on the right side of the taskbar. Go to "Open Volume Mixer" where it should have individual sliders for "Microphone" "Master Volume" "Line In" etc. Try lowering the "Microphone" or "Line In" volumes to a better level. You'll know which one to move if you try to speak or make any sound into the microphone of the device you want to adjust, you'll see an indicator bar next to the slider move, depending on how loud you speak. Oh, make sure the program you are trying to run with the cam is on and the cam is up and running.
If you have Realtek HD Audio like I have, there will be 2 speaker icons in the same taskbar, one red, one silver/gray. If you have that, then use the red one (Realtek) and go to sound manager. Open the tab of the device you want to adjust and do the same thing, adjust the one that is giving you problems. Here there will be 2 sliders, one for playback and one for recording. Try the playback first or mute it completely, that should help.
If you are still having problems, reply with a comment in this thread so I can find it easier. I hope I could help you get started. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!
