I can't choose which method to record my audio

This section is now closed.

Audacity 1.2.x is now obsolete. Please use the current Audacity 2.1.x version.

The final version of Audacity for Windows 98/ME is the legacy 2.0.0 version.

I deleted your duplicate post in which you asked the same question. Please only post once. We do always reply to posts in English. I moved this to the 1.2 board for Windows since you are using 1.2.

If you have selected the wrong recording device in the Preferences in Audacity 1.2 (for example a USB device), there may be no choice of inputs for that device. This will make Mixer Toolbar empty.

It looks like you are on Windows XP, so I suggest you upgrade to 1.3.14
http://audacity.googlecode.com/files/au ... 1.3.14.exe .

In 1.3.14, all connected devices and all the listed inputs for your built-in sound device will appear in Device Toolbar.

To make sure the built-in sound device is listing all the possible inputs, please go to the Windows Control Panel:

Unfortunately, we are not interested in Audacity 1.2 as it will be superseded in the near future.

Did you install Audacity 1.3.14?

Did you enable all the inputs in Windows as described? Please list all the inputs available in Windows "Sounds and Audio Devices" when you click "Volume" in the "Sound Recording" panel. Then list the inputs that are available in the Device Toolbar in 1.3.14. We'll take it from there.

I can't open the input choice window . I'm using a mike into the USB. I don't get enough volume with the playback selector up full. Playback is very low with my speaker up full.
Input and output volume are my main problem ! Help ! Another broblem is with "tutorials" that don't match the Audacity equipment that I have. It takes a lot of guess-work to control things.

Much of the documentation has been written since development of the 1.2.x series ended, so it refers to the 1.3.x series.
Audacity 1.3.14 for Windows can be downloaded from here: http://audacityteam.org/download/beta_windows
I've been using the 1.3 series for something like 5 years, so I can assure you that it has been very thoroughly tested and is far superior and less problematic than the old 1.2.6 version.
