Please help! Can't record in Audacity!


Recently, a pop-up came up from audacity. It said “Recover Recent Projects?” which were just test (nothing important in projects). I clicked “NO” becuase I did not need them recovered. But audacity said that I can no longer record after i clicked no.

Anyway to fix this?

(Sorry if I was unclear)

It helps to write down (or attach an image of) the exact error message you see. Please see here for how to attach files: .

If you are seeing “Error opening sound device” when you try to record, please see: .


Well, I’m trying to reinstall the program. I’ll see if that works.

Okay, uninstalling worked. I’m all set now… sorry for the trouble
