I have installed several recorders - including MP3myMP3 - but I cannot record any sound inside my laptop. My operating system is Windows XP SP3. I have regulary used MP3myMP3 on my PC, but I cannot here.

In 'source' I only get Microphone and Line in - not Wave Out Mix or Stereo Mix or anything else.

What do I have to do?

Just Doesn't work Depending upon the sound card and various other system properties the program simply may or may not work. For example some dell machines simply have Stereo or Wave out mix disabled in hardware. For more info on Dell issues click here.

We sincerely apologize to anyone who has spent their valuable time to install and try out this program only to find it will not work with their system/configuration.

Actually, I wanted you to read that first.

Try the following:
  • Create a restore point.
  • Please download Restore Sound, and save it to your desktop. Be sure to double click on it to install. Confirm the install, if necessary.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Test recording.

Did this work?

I'm sorry - but I did as you instructed, and it didn't work.

Is there anything else we can try? I hope there is!

Do you have any defense programs running, such as Spyware Guard, Spybot Teatimer, Comodo Defense+, HIPS, RegDefend by GhostSecurity, or any else?

Yes, I am running Spyware Guard, and (I think) Spybot Teatimer in addition to Zone Alarm and Avira. Are any of these causing the problem?

Only have one of those running normally. They do the same type of things.

You have to disable those while doing the registry fix. They probably reset the registry where it was modified with the Restore Sound fix.

Try to first disable the realtime protection. Then, run Restore Sound again and immediately restart. When restarted, you can re-enable protection.

Did this work?

Seems like an audio DLL is corrupted. Let us fix this, possibly.

Do you have your XP disk? If so follow these steps to do a SFC /SCANNOW

Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
Type in: sfc /scannow
Click OK (Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Flyupload, and post download link.


If you don't have Windows CD....
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start and then Run
type in regedit and click OK


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


Thanks to Broni for the instructions

I don't have CD/DVD, so I followed the last set of instructions.

sfc simply quit, without any message.

What to do now?

Be sure to reboot the computer, and then run SFC again.

I restarted the computer several times, and ran SFC - with the same result?

Anything else we can try?

I don't know why I didn't think of this before: I connected the speaker chord one ed at the mic socket and the other at the headphone socket. Then I played music on my Windows Media Player and recorded it on MP3myMp3...and it worked.

There's just one snag: the sound cracks a little (but not when recording voice, say a lecture).

What do you think can be done about that?
