Mic recordings don't play after PC crash..

Hi, I have made about 4Gigs of micriphone recordings for my personal use. However, my PC unexpectedly crashed some time ago. I retrieved all saved data, and re-installed my OS - WinXP Home. But now there is a problem - Sonic Stage software doesn't let me play my own recordings. All I get is an error message: "SonicStage (00002460-2100) Cannot play this track because its licencing information cannot be retrieved. For more information, contact the source from which you received this track. (000084e0)" Fact: I am the source from which this track was received. Then I tried to convert it into WAV. But I got this message: "Non-ATRAC tracks or tracks purchased from the music service cannot be saved as WAV format" Fact: It's a mic recording of my own voice. It has not been purchased. It's been created by myself. And it's definitely ATRAC file with extension *.oma Please I need your help,if anything can be done. Quite valuable information has been recorded,and I need it now.

You need to use 2 different players at the same time to do that. There will probably be a conflict though until you assign a different DMA and IRQ for the devices.

SOURCE: Problem with transfering!

This is not a solution, but an explanation.
There is nothing wrong with your Net MD. This is a standard feature Sony included to protect copyrights. An extensive search of available soft produced only one non-commercial product which promisses such transfer
No idea if it works, it's a shareware.

While using Skype, the person I am talking to can't hear me. It says I need to install a soundcard. What is the solution?

If the person cannot hear you then, either your mic driver not installed or not working OR the mic is not configured in Skype.
To test your mic go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the mic need to be configured in Skype.
Normal 0 To configure the mic - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

Logitech 9000 recording problem

My suggestion for recording music of any sort is to disable the cam mic and use a good quality mic plugged into the sound card as the mic in a cam is more suited to voice.

Acer aspire 5735 mic problem

Go to control panel and sound devices and unmute the mic under record options. To avoid feed back use headphones or mute the mic in the play back option. Audacity is a good open source application to use to record on your PC.

My micriphone attached to headphone seems not to work.

First, make certain that the mic is really broken, by testing it in another application or devise. Sometimes you cannot hear your own voice unless you are in recording mode! If the mic is found to be working, then try to reconfigure the software, or the Yahoo connection. Good Luck!

Samson co1u recording issue

you first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.
