Hi,

You can search for the word 'sound' in the Start Menu search box.


How to record sound
Once you have started Sound Recorder check that your microphone is plugged into the sound card. Also, don't forget to check its sound level in the Volume Mixer. If it is on mute you won't be able to record anything.
When you are ready, click on the Start Recording button. Job done :)

Tip

Where has the run command gone/how to show run command.


In Windows Vista and Windows 7 , the run command is hidden by default. This was probably done to declutter the start menu , but I like having the run command available as it does come in handy for more advanced users.

So , how do I get it back?

Right click anywhere on your startbar and select properties.

Now , under the start menu tab , select customize.

Now , just under the recorded TV section , there is a check box with the run command. Check the box and select okay.

Your run command will now once again feature in your start menu.

Please remember to rate this solution if you found it helpful.

Xitel Inport De luxe with window 7


The directions for using the Xitel Inport Deluxe under Win7 are the same as those for using the device with Vista. The drivers are built into the OS. You will need to set the audio input to the Xitel device. For most installs of Windows 7 (Aero capable), with the Inport Deluxe plugged into a USB port on the computer, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under the Sound listing, click on Manage Audio Devices. In the Recording tab, right click on Microphone Input and select Disable. Right click on the Line INport and select Enable. Right click again on Line INPort and make this the default device. Click on the Playback tab and right click on Speakers INport and select Disable.
If Aero isn't available, it's Control Panel > Sound.

You can use any recording software that runs under your version of Windows 7. The LP Recorder software manual starts on page 8 of the Xitel Inport Deluxe manual. If you do not have the original disc, LP Recorder is available here: http://www.cfbsoftware.com/lprecorder/lprecorder.aspx . (Audacity, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ , works much the same way as LP Recorder. However the drop down menus for the source and output are available from the main program with the default toolbars enabled.)


I hope this helps.

Hi. I bought a new Acer computer last spring. I have no difficulties recording sound from the Inet, but if I try to record with a mic, I can hardly hear what I recorded.


Hello, If you're using Windows XP you can go to the small speaker icon in the taskbar and double click on it, coose the menu options and choose Advanced controls, you'll be able to see a button under the MIC slider, click on it and then check Mic boost, click the close button and you're done, please don't hesitate to ask again if you are using vista or windows 7, have a nice day :)

Need drivers for windows 7 for my sony icd p620 cannot find anywhere


This IC Recorder is not compatible with the Windows 7, Vista and Macintosh Operating Systems and at this point of time, there are no Drivers available.
However, you can transfer the files by connecting the Headphone OUT of the IC Recorder to the LINE IN of the Computer. Then, use any Sound Recording Software. You can also use the Sound Recorder Software that is pre installed in the Windows Operating System.

How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker If you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker When we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version 6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool.
So, the next question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker.
Your best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or, better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good list of webcam video capturing software from this list:

Microphone


Inspect your computer to see if has a hole somewhere that might look like a microphone. If you want to find out for sure open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound wave in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work you probably do not have a built in microphone. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.
