Hi thanks for reading this
im running a pc on windows vista home premium.
when i try to record sounds from my soundcard using one of the free sound recorders off the internet i cant hear any records the file but when i play it back it has no sound allthough you can see the slide bar moving across the screen as though it is playing.
im new to vista and still finding my way around.
the sound recorder im using at the moment is audacity 1.3 beta (unicode).
but you name it ive tried it. but all of them have the same effect every time.
many thanks in advance ozzy

On the taskbar have you tried the volume controls?

another offering is to turn off User Account Control.

Control panel--security--security center--under User Account Control click on turn off now. You'll need to reboot.

Ok. If you're sure that all is working in Vista, ie right click sound icon in sys tray and check playback devices and recoring devices then it must be settings in Audacity.In Audacity click edit then preferences.My playback setting is for internal speaker/headphones. Recording is set to Wave Out Mix. I also use the 1.2.6. version.

Ok i give ive tried everything but nothing works.
when i went into audacity preferences i set it to my laptops speakers but the recording tab only has my microphone settings and not wave out mix.
but i think the problem lies with my laptop because i cant even copy with mp3 my mp3 whitch i used for ages on xp. please help
