Error Message

I have deleted Audacity and re-installed and I keep getting this error message - what to do? It was working fine at one time, now it isn’t.

Error opening recording device - Error code -xxxx this means there is a problem with your Audacity, operating system or sound device recording settings, where xxxx is replaced by a numeric code. the code is 9996

what to do.

What “device” are you using? …What are you recording from? The mic built-into your laptop? A USB turntable? Streaming audio? Etc.?

What he said.

Also, on Windows, sometimes changing the Host between MME and Window WASAPI can help. :smiley:
