Mic doesn't work on MSN Messenger

  Pier1 20:19 16 Feb 2003

Hi, my microphone works as normal, but when I click on 'Start talking' on MSN Mess and it gets accepted, it says " The voice conversation with [email protected] has ended". Why is this?

The mic is configured on MSN and I have turned my firewall off, and it normally works when chatting to my mate upstairs on the LAN (but thru MSN, so it'll be through the net).

Any ideas?

MSN Messenger looks at your sound card to see if it is what is known as "Full Duplex" - that is, it can record and play at the same time. Older cards merely emulate this so it looks as if it works, but MSN Messenger checks for it.

If there is no error on your side (looks like it), it might be on the other computer. Try starting it from the other computer (if you have access) to see if it works. If it causes an error, it's probably that computer.

If there are no errors, I'm out of ideas.
