When recording my voice sounds like a chipmunk

I am able to play CDs or listen to wave files with no problem, but when i use Sound Recorder to record myself, it sounds like a chipmunk. Likewise, when i use skype to make calls to family, they report that i sound like this chipmunk. I have made no changes to the computer and its a brand new computer- only 6 months old- Dell Inspiron running Windows Vista SP1 native install, it was working for a couple months and then now it does not. I have never messed with the sound settings at all so no idea what happened. Any advice?

The same thing happened with me.
you need to go to Dell webcam manager, and click Webcam console.
you need to go to the 'effects' tab, and uncheck 'enable Audio Effects'

Even though you say you did not mess with the settings, I'd suggest you check the audio recoding settings in Vista anyway. Better make sure all those are correct.

If you are using an internal microphone, I'd suggest trying an external one (if you already have that, try a different one). Even a webcam with built in mic will do. That way you can isolate the cause.
Based on my experience I'd say that chances are bugger that it is a loose contact, so make sure to check your plug if it's an external mic.

I have a number of files on my digital recorder where I have recorded interviews. When I press play, it shows up the length of each interview and the countdown starts, but there is no sound, just a qu


Did any of the files ever playback with sound? You can record sounds, but that doesn't mean the recorder is picking them up. A bad connection, level control setting could be wrong.
Try to do another short recording. If you are using a microphone pull the jack out during recording and put it back in again. Then listen to the recording. If there is sound when the microphone is in and it goes when it is out, then there is a possibility that somehow you recorded the other stuff with no connection and that's why there is no sound. If there is no sound on the new recording at all, then you might have a faulty playback amplifier inside the device.

I recorded meeting minutes to my digital OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder and want to transfer the recording on it to my Dell Inspirion/1100 laptop. Could I transfer the audio from the headphone jack to...


Hello,

yes, it is possible. You will connect the earphone jack from your voice recorder to Mic of your laptop. Then you will be needing a wave software on your laptop, download the wave software from the internet, open the wave file, then press play on your voice recorder and the minutes will be recorded into your laptop as a wave files.

But the easiest method of tranferring the minutes is by using the usb cable of your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder. If you don't have it you can purchase it, then connect it from your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder to the usb of your computer and it will be read like a flash drive.

After that, go to my computer and you will see a drive representing the OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder, open the drive and you will see your minutes, then simply create a folder on your computer, and copy, paste the minutes into the created folder. And the would be all.

God luck.

I need to record voice on a CD on my Inspiron 1521. Is this possible? I do voice-overs and need to burn new CD for my agent Help please


You can use a microphone or a built-in one (if the laptop has one) and use the Sound Recorder program. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder. You can then record your voice-over and save the Wave file and burn it on a CD disk.

Wow I have an audigy card and a Olympus and never had that problem before.

Goto soundblaster.com and make sure the audigy drivers are updated. There is an update to the olympus software available on their website as well.

If the volume is up too high on your recorder when it is playing back, it may shut the speakers down as a safety precaution especially if your sound card has a limiter to it.
