Audacity wont record

Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes. I have recently downloaded Audacity onto my Vista notebook. It seemed to instal OK and opened up fine but I cannot record anything. I have checked the FAQ and various articles, but cant find a solution.

I have also checked control panel / sound / manage audio devices and see that under the “recording” tab I have a microphone and WaveOut mix devices shown, but nothing else. I have enabled everything in turn but the only recording I get is a high pitched buzz when the microphone is enabled and used.

Vista seems pretty touchy in the driver department, but I’m hoping there is a solution. Any ideas? Thanks. :question:


Actually, it’s not. This is the forum to discuss the color of the panels, type of font in the forum messages, and the shape of the smilies. Go back up and find the right version of Audacity (1.2, 1.3) and then the right operating system (Mac, PC…) and post there.
