SOURCE: Sony IC Recorder ICD B600

To transfer recordings from the Sony ICD-B600 to Windows first buy a Radio Shack #42-2497 cable. Connect the cable from the recorder headphone jack to the computer microphone jack. In Windows XP follow the path: start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. This small window will allow you to record 60 seconds of sound to a file. Get Article #82215 from the Microsoft web site. It will tell you how to make extended recordings. I was able to record 45 minutes continuously. The recorder is turned on by moving the 'HOLD' switch down. The recorder is turned off by moving the 'HOLD' switch up and waiting 2.5 seconds. Have fun.

SOURCE: acid 7.0 music recorder

It sounds like the software is having trouble locating a recording device. If you go in to the settings for the application, you should be able to select/see the audio input devices. Does the device you are trying to record to show up and is it selected as the active recording device?

SOURCE: recording conversations which mic to buy?

How many speakers?  In a room?  Outdoors?  What kind of recorder do you use?  What is your budget?  Hi Fi or just need to be able to recognize what is being said?
Depending on your setup you might try:

Solution one: lavalier mics like an Audiotechnica ATR35 on each speaker's lapel.
Solution two: a boundary microphone on the table, like Shure mx395.  
Solution three: cardioid pattern mics pointed at each speaker (could also use a shotgun).
Solution four: one figure eight pattern mic put between two speakers facing each other (make sure the axis of the mic points at the two speakers).  
Solution five: you could scrap your recorder altogether and get a Zoom H2, put all four channels on and don't thump the table.

Look for a 3.5 mm microphone port on the computer. Usually the port on the back of the desktop will have a pink surround. (There will be other ports there; the usual minimum are the green port for speakers and blue one for line-in.) Put the 3.5 mm jack on the end of the cord on the microphone into the port. If you have an add-in sound card, use the microphone port on the sound card.

Some machines will also have a front panel microphone port. This will have a small mike icon next to the port.

Next you need to ensure that the audio device is set to Microphone. For Windows systems (Vista/7/8), enter the Control Panel and go to the Hardware and Sound panel. Click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. Then click on the Recording tab. Check if the microphone listed as plugged in. Make this the default recording device. (XP has a slightly different name for the panel.) For XP through Windows 7, click on the start button and then find the Control Panel listed on the right. For Windows 8, from the desktop, press the Ctrl and X keys at the same time. Then find the Control Panel in the list. (Alternatively, activate the Charms menu, Ctrl+C or hover on the upper right of the screen. Move down and click on the gear (Settings). Then select the Control Panel.)

If the computer doesn't indicate that the microphone is plugged in, make sure that the 3.5 mm plug is in the correct port. Next try the microphone on another computer. The audio card port could be damaged or the microphone cable could be faulty. If the microphone works on another computer, you can try a USB audio adapter (StarTech ICUSBAUDIO or similar) or a new sound card. (Note: some older sound cards do not work properly on newer versions of Windows. If you have a sound card installed and the motherboard has an on-board audio device, remove the sound card. Enable the on-board audio in the computer's BIOS. Install the appropriate audio drivers. Try that audio device. Accessing the BIOS will depend on computer. Often you can press Esc, F1, F2, F10 or Delete repeatedly after you turn on the computer. If Windows starts to boot, turn off the system and try again.) If another computer doesn't recognize the microphone, I'd recommend a new microphone. Fixing the cable isn't worth the effort.

I hope this helps.

Microphone Not Working!


If this is a microphone that connects to the 3.5 mm microphone jack, check that your microphone is connected to the Mic port (pink on the rear of a desktop). Make sure that the plug is fully seated. If you are using a front microphone jack on a desktop, try using the rear port (or vice versa). Next, if you have Windows, check that the audio input is set to Microphone, instead of Line In. (For Windows 7, this would be Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices (under Sound) and the recording tab.) Microphone should be your default device.

Next try uninstalling the audio driver and letting Windows reinstall the driver. Use the Device Manager (under Devices and Printers in the Hardware and Sound Control Panel). Expand the section labeled Sound, video and game controllers. Then right click on the Audio driver. Click on Uninstall then reboot the computer after the driver is removed. The correct driver should be reinstalled. (I believe that you do not have a separate driver for the microphone under Windows but you should make certain of that.) Check for driver updates as well. The Windows Update may list these as Optional updates.

If you have a USB microphone, try a different port. Also check for drivers from the manufacturer.

If you have an Apple or Unix OS, check for similar issues with the connection or drivers.

I hope this helps.

(who had a similar problem with Audacity recording on the line in port last month; I fixed the problem by uninstalling the audio driver and then reinstalling it. Then changing the Recording Source to Line In finished the fix. The driver got changed by a computer tune-up utility (registry cleaner).)

Audio driver is working properly but mic is not working.....using lenovo g430 3000


Hello,
If the audio driver is working properly but the microphone isn't, ensure that: 1(a). The microphone is not muted.On Windows XP, go to start, run and type sndvol32 and press enter button to launch the Windows Sound Volume Management Panel. Under the Microphone volume control, uncheck "mute" box.This should make your microphone functional again. (b). The wrong microphone may be selected, esp. if your sound-card has an external port for microphones.To rectify the problem, use 1(a) as illustrated above, go to File>Advanced Controls and select Input Devices.Under the Microphone advanced settings, you'll see MIC1 Select and MIC2 Select. Switch the selection as appropriate until it works. 2. If the audio driver has it's own Sound management Panel, e.g that of Realtek, open it's sound control panel and disable all microphone effects that may be enabled. 3. Ensure that sound acceleration is maximum. Open the DirectX Diagnostics Engine by going to Start>Run> and type dxdiag and press enter button.When the window opens, click the Sound tab and slide the Sound acceleration bar to maximum.
I hope my solutions work.Have a good day.

Hello, i recently bought a new motherboard a Gigabyte GA-8I915P for no reason the mic doesn't work, I've already installed the latest audio drivers for this motherboard, the speakers work fine but why...


Maybe it's not recognized. Unplug every audio device, open Realtek HD Audio Manager and start plugging them back one at a time, the manager should automatically detect that something was plugged in a specific port. Just tell it what you have plugged.

That KachiWachi guy is a **** indeed...
My fix for Vista 64 bit, yellow exclamation mark at Logitech Mic (Pro 9000) in Device Manager:

Right click Logitech Mic (Pro 9000), properties, driver, update driver

Browse my computer for driver software, location should be C:\Windows\System32\drivers, also make sure the Include subfolders box is checked

Click on Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
Make sure there is a checkmark at Show compatible hardware

Select the USB Audio Device instead of the Logitech Mic (Pro 9000) and click next

Now your microphone works by using the generic Windows driver instead of the Logitech ****!

Realtek audio device with sound effect menager


First thing is first, there should be 3 audio jack inputs. Line in, Line out and Mic. Make sure you are plugged into the Mic input.

Next if you are running windows XP check to make sure the Microphone volume is not muted and turned up. Do this by going to control panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> volume tab --> Advanced button. The Microphone volume should be there if not select file --> properties and make sure microphone is checked. It should then appear on the volume controls.

This should take care of it if not what program are you using the mic with?
