|I am having difficulty with windows sound recorder when recording sounds from within windows.|
First of all to clarify, I have a microphone and from the microphone, sounds record fine but when I want to record a sound without the microphone, the volume of the recorded sound is super low and it's fuzzy. I adjusted all the mic volume settings from the audio properties and it doesn't make a difference.
I'm watching a video file and there's a sound byte that I'd like to record from the video, if I try it, it doesn't work. BUT if I use my microphone it works fine.
I already changed the hardware acceleration settings to maximum in the device manager. The sound card drivers are fine and I even tried deleting the sound card from the device manager and reinstalling it on the next boot up. Still nothing.
And just to be completely clear, I require a solution to THIS problem, I am not looking for another program to substitute sound recorder because either the free programs aren't really free or they are too complicated to use I've found.
I find it really strange that it lets me record from a microphone but not from a within windows sound. I recently reinstalled Windows ME on this system and before the reinstall (full reinstall after a FORMAT C:\), there was no issue with windows sounds or microphone sounds. I know I mentioned that I already played around with the audio settings/hardware acceleration but if it sounds like I didn't mention something correctly, please feel free to correct me as I don't want to risk missing something simple that I overlooked or neglected to mention.
Also, any sound not coming from a microphone won't record, the microsoft sound, WAV files, MP3, WMV, WMA NOTHING but before the reformat, all those above worked and more.
