Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR220E/S Notebook PC

Open Question

Recording/sound card? On my old laptop I had downloaded a program that could record streaming audio from the internet into an mp3 file on your computer. I just got this new Sony Vaio VGN-NR, but I am unable to record...whatever program I download, it says it can't detect a device...but there's of course a sound card already installed in the laptop right? otherwise I wouldn't be able to hear sound... I've tried the support and help center on my computer, but I haven't been able to fix this problem...although I have found one lead that could explain the problem. I the hardware and sound section, I found that the playback device is Speaker/HP Realtek High Definition Audio, but there is nothing listed for recording. I think that is the problem...the laptop should be able to record right from the sound coming out of the laptop, right? That's how it worked on my old laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

Here is the link to that driver file for that sound issue.

Run the setup and it should install it. Verify it afterwards by going into the device manager and making sure that its there underneath the sound area.

I'm confused. A Codec is used in an audio player like Media Player 11. If your computer has no sound when it comes on then you need a driver. I looked up your model and found a Realtek driver speciafically for your machine. You can download this at: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNS460. If you need an Audio CODEC for your media player I would suggest downloading PowerDVD from download.com to insure that your system sound is working correctly then you can use the Microsoft CODEC installation package to determine the real missing CODEC.

SOURCE: Device can not start code 10

error code 10- either the device is not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed (could also be manufacturer specific error code) right click on the item in the device manager, select properties,drivers and either roll back driver or update driver as, unless you have removed the connector and not reconnected properly, I assume the device is still there.

Tip

Download Free Music legally,,legally


Are you scared that the RIAA is about to track you down for illegally downloading songs. Well, here is a method of obtaining many songs absolutely free that is virtually untrackable by modern technology. This has to do with capturing streaming audio, which in many cases, believe it or not are plain old mp3s just waiting for you to "download." I have found most of the current top - 40 as well as many others you may like, so keep searching. The music is waiting for you to find it.

Step 1:
First of all, you need to find a good site that hosts streaming audio. My favorite that has brought me many songs to date is hxxp://www.windowsmedia.com. Some others are just as good, but this is the site that i will be referencing (plus, I know you guys love to steal from Microsoft).

Step 2:
Alright, go up to the left hand corner where there is an empty text box. This is the search box, just fill it with songname or artist just like you would in kaaza and click search. This will bring up a page with links to many websites hosting a stream by that artist. The ones with music notes are just that...music, this is what you want. In many cases, this is all you need. Just right click on one of the links and click "save us" to save the song.This works if the file extension is .mp3 or .wma or .asf or well - other known formats. If this worked, you are finished, otherwise continue reading.

Step 3:
However, if you encounter a .asx file, there are few more steps you will have to endure. First of all, do exactly like the above example downloaded, check to see how large the file is. If it is large file in the megabyte range, then you should be able to play it in your music program. However, if it is less than1 kilobyte, open it as a textfile. You will see many script commands that communicate to windows media player. Don't worry about these, just look for some URLs which will most likely be pointing to a .asf file. It will have at least one if not more. Open the new found URL in your browser and save it like in step 2 and you should be good to go. (I use Mozilla, because Internet Explorer like to open things rather than save them as I tell it)

NOTE: If any of the URL are preceded with "mms://" instead of :http://" find another URL, because this technique will not work.

This technique is especially useful to avoid prosecution because streaming
audio, and downloading it appear the same to a web server, therefore you are seen as just another "legal" listener, so "download" away my friend and don't blame me if this soon becomes illegal (if it isn't already)

Step 4:
If you are picky then search for a program that will convert these file types to mp3. I assure you there are many sites out there.

If this technique does not work for some reason, there i8s another technique which is manually recording streaming audio, with an audio capture program. I use the one that came with my sound card (Audigy 2zs, great sound card), but I would recommend it only as a last resort such as with ":mms://" files. There is a degredation in quality compared to the other formats and it records every sound your PC makes while it is records every sound your PC makes while it is recording so don't chat on AIM while recording (lol I can hear random doors slamming now).

I can't record audio.


To record streaming music, you need a program that's specifically made for that. Here's one link to a company that sells such a product:
http://www.nch.com.au/soundtap/index.html

However, you might want to just search on Google for "record streaming audio". Shop around - there are some freeware products, and some that are shareware or very low priced. I just included the link so you could see what one program offers, but I haven't tried this particular program myself. I've used some freeware ones in the past, but they probably don't work with Disaster, er, I mean Vista.

Hi, I just got a new pc HP Media Center M8430F, and I am not able to record stream audio or internet radio


I have an HP with Media Center as well.

Generally you need a software program that specifically records streaming audio and or video. A freeware program I use is OpD2d. Google it and install. Very simple to use.
