Re: no voice is recorded when i take a movie

Thanks for the quicktime tip lorenzo39! A look at the manual states that the video is AVI (MJPEG). The easy to find morgan codec is good but it's a 60 day try-before-you-buy situation, not really useful if you just want to watch/edit your home videos. I found a couple of freeware codec packs with MJPEG, but this seemed like the most recent/ best:
Windows media player has trouble with it, but VirtualDub works great. Fine, I'll playback in quicktime, edit in VirtualDub and avoid Microsoft alltogether!

Re: no voice is recorded when i take a movie

The camera does record sound, it's not on mute but it doesn't have audio playback on the camera and when trying to play it on the computer you need to download an additional codec.
The only program I've found that plays the video & audio without any problems is Quicktime, so try using this. In order to use Windows Media Player you need to track down the upgraded codec, but unfortunately I can't give you a direct link for that, it's annoyingly difficult to track down!

I think your card is damaged. Try connecting to your computer and check available space. Take a backup and format it from your PC, check if it is formatting completely.

If the card is not Class 10 you will also have problem recording movie from a camera. You need a high speed card to record video.

While shooting video if i zoom then sounds doennot come why?

From page 30 of the manual: "If the ZOOM buttons are being pressed during the Movie shots, the voice will not be recorded."

Many cameras do this so as not to record the sound of the lens being zoomed.

How to i use video mode

Rotate the Live View switch to the LV position. Focus by pressing the shutter release button halfway. Start recording by pressing the movie-record button. Stop recording by pressing the movie-record button again.

Full details are in the "Recording and Viewing Movies" section of the manual (page 107 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

My olympus Fe-210 wont record sound

This was done intentionally by the camera manufacturers. I agree that it is not fair but the purpose of the movie mode is not to replace a video camera. It just allows you to take short movie clips. Depending on how long you have owned the camera you might be able to exchange it for a model that does allow audio capability in movie mode as Olympus does have other FE models that allow for this feature.

Can't hear audio on video playback (neither direct from camera nor from pc)

This is because the camera is not capable to record the sound. The camera was not designed with any audio speakers to be able to record and playback sound recorded during movie mode.

Olympus Camera FE-170 Problem in recording Voice

Recording moving images. Sound is not recorded

This is straight from your camera's user manual.

The camera does not have any way to provide sound with the movie clips. This is how the camera was designed by the manufacturer.

Sound not recorded during movie making

Sony DSC-S700 can record voice in video clips but you can listen sound of clip by exporting it to computer and playback there.
