I need to find out if I still have a built-in recorder with Vista

I changed my hardrive and installed Windows Vista Home Premium, I have been attempting to record music that I am sending from my Yamaha Musical keyboard, I have Audacity which is musical editing software that is made to work in conjunction with the recorder in my computer. However, now that I switched to Vista I can't seem to find or use the built in recorder, It worked when i was using Windows XP pro. all that is now listed in the device manager under audio,video and game contollers is the Soundmax sound card.

    In the past I have not needed drivers for my Yamaha keyboard. I am only sending prerecorded music fron the keyboard to my computer. The keyboard has not ever shown up in my device manager even when I was successfully doing this with XP. I'm sending an audio signal from the Yamaha keyboard to the computer over an audio cable to the computer's mic in. What is not showing up is the computer's recorder. I would need a driver for the keyboard if I were using the USB cables and Musicsoft downloader.

    I haven't needed drivers for my Yamaha keyboard before.I'm sending an audio signal across audio cable from my keyboard's audio output to the computer's mic in. This procedure worked before with Winows XP.I am getting the music to the computer but it is not recording. I have Audacity which is music editing software that is set up to work with the computer's internal recorder

Hi,

The problem concerned a lack of recording device within the operating system because the device was disabled by default.

Select : 'Start : Control Panel : Hardware and Sound : Sound'
The small 'Sound' window includes 'Playback', 'Record' and 'Sounds' tabs. Select the 'Record' tab.
Within the 'Record' tab, within the 'Select a recording device below to modify settings:' RIGHT-Click within this blank area and select 'Show Disabled Devices'
It is likely that the 'Stereo Mix' associated with the sound card is disabled. RIGHT-Click and select 'Enable'. While here, select the 'Properties' of the Stereo Mix' device.
Within the Properties there is likely to be a 'Levels' tab. Select this and ensure that the level is reasonable high - otherwise the recordings will be at a very low/quiet level.
OK this and return to Audacity. It should now record.

Other issues might be :-

I suspect that enabling the Stereo Mix feature of the sound card could cause problems with some of Vista's multimedia playing software. The intention of Vista is to stop users recording copyrighted materials! (And even if your use is legitimate, the secure pipe for media has been broken and might stop the media player working properly).


Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Since your keyboard is not visible in the device manager or control panel that means you have not installed the correct drivers drivers for your keyboard. Below I'm providing the link from where you can download the latest driver for your keyboard kindly uninstall any drivers if you have installed earlier for your keyboard. disconnect your keyboard from pc before installing the drivers. connect only after installation or if asked by installation. In case you get any error just comment back. First check wether your OS is 32 bit or 64 bit then only choose the correct driver.

Yes, if you use a Virtual Machine, you can install the version of windows you wish to work with, install the software, and it should work just fine.
You will however need a genuine copy of windows to install in the virtual machine.
You may be able to find an image of the OS you need, or a snapshot of an OS, to load into the VM, it all depends on the type of VM you are going to use

It could be that the OS is not assigning a drive letter to your removable drive. To do this, go to disk management and assign one.



Right-click My Computer then Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click the removable drive and click on Change Drive Letter
Assign a drive letter and click OK
Your drive should now show up on My Computer

Hope this helps.

Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition


Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.

I may have a work around
It is a way to give admin privs to the msi file
First, create a file called Arthur.bat
- Open a folder, say C:\temp
- Right-click and select new, Text Document
- name it Arthur.bat
Next, edit the file
- right click the file and select edit
- put this in the editor ... msiexec /a d:\Arthur.msi
- save and exit
Then, right-click the file and select "Run as administrator"

Worked for me.

There is another msi file (ISScript11.msi) on the CD which I didn't run which may be needed ? But, I managed to play through the tutorial/start so ... we w ill see.

So, it is a permissions thing. Hopefully this will get passed on to the developers and they can resolve it tout-de-suite

Driver for windows vista home premium


I have Windows Vista Home Premium. I do not have my original Olympus disc. I downloaded the driver from driver guide (http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=583812) > installed driver (in this case pencam.exe. After installing the Olympus software I hooked the USB cable up, turned on my w-10 recorder and let Windows begin it's search.

I manually pointed it to the pencam folder where it proceeded to load the drivers successfully. I am now able to transfer my files successfully. Hope this helps in some way.
