My sound recorder does'nt work .


I understood your problem. Here i providing you perfact solution for this problem.
This is might occurs due to some dust formed on the hole of microphone.


just use air blower or vacuum cleaner to clean the hole.
if further same problem occurs then you have to replace your mic. or better to use external Headphones with microphone.

As a beginner, i would like to connect seagate external drive to tv and use as a recorder


You can't connect a hard drive to a tv and record to it even if you have a usb port on the tv. The tv will read from the usb port pictures and music but it will not record to it. The tv does not have any software built into it that will let you use the usb port as a personal video recorder. It won't work.

I have connected my phillips cdr785 recorder the proper way to record from an external source and I get the message "start source" on the cdr side when trying to record. And it never starts...


If you're recording an analog source the recorder won't automatically start. You have to start it in sync with the playback.

If you're trying a synchronized digital recording...

Page 28 of the manual says

Start playback on the selected source.


The CD recorder starts to record simultaneously and recording in progress is shown. The remaining recording time left of the CDR(W) is displayed.


Note: If you start playback on the selected source within a track, recording starts at the beginning of the next track or after 2.7 seconds of silence in analogue recordings.

I am attaching an external microphone and need to mute the internal mic. They both work and it echos. PLease help.


Adding a mike doesn't create echos/feedback. Windows? Version? Right click on speaker icon in lower right and go to recording device mixers, can mute and adjust level of sound sources, also microphone power and pre-amp. Telephones and other devices (laptops) with both input and output will feedback unless the input is "noise cancelling", so you will have to be much more careful with the placement of the external mike compared to using the built in mike.

External mike doesn't work


I'm assuming you have Windows Vista. If so, you may need to change the default microphone, particularly if you have a built-in microphone on the computer.
1. Right-click the speaker icon next to the clock in the system tray.
2. Select "Recording Devices"
3. Select "Microphone" or whatever item you want to record with.

There will be a VU meter showing the input level. Try talking into you mike and see if the VU meter goes up. If so, you're good to go.

If not:
1. Click the "Properties" button in the screen mentioned above
2. Move the "Volume" and "Boost" sliders up.
3. Click "OK."
4. Check your VU meter again.

If this does not work it is possible you selected the properties for the wrong device. Click on another device and repeat the last 4 steps again.

External Mike not working


Try this:

Double click on the volume icon on the system bar (lower righ corner, asuming you are using windows), this will display the volume controls. Now, click on Otions -> Properties and select "Record", MAYBE you will need to change the Mixing Device in order to do this, click on accept or ok and the volume panel now contains the recording volume controls, check the silence mark ys not checked for the mic, adjust your volume settings if needed. Good Luck!.

To get the original volume config, just do the same selecting the play option.

Acer aspire 4720z Built-in microphone only records loud static


You did great troubleshooting for your laptop. If the sound is fine and good for the headset, your sound card is probably not the problem. The driver aspect, should not be the problem either if it works with your headset. So herein lies the dilemma...the problem is most likely due to some physical componenent between the built-in mike and the computer case itself. You should take it to a laptop repair shop and see what they can do. It has nothing to do with the software or the sound card. It is the physical component of the built-in mike and speakers. Get that checked out and you should be good to go!

IHP120 20gb multicodecjukebox-voice recording


Sir,
I solved the problem .Actually under the SOURCE title it was under the LINE IN.There were some more options like INT.MIKE, EXT.MIKE, OPTICAL. So i first tried under external mike by connecting to the EXT.mike and selected the source and by removing the external mike switched to Int. mike and changed the source. It automatically picked according to the source and played the recording and saved it in the file and later heard the lecture with the head phone and later converted in to a file in the laptop. Now it is working nicely. A really a good product to make use and it is very much user friendly.
Thanks again.
regards
