I think I know the answer to my problem (MIC NOT WORKING)I done a system restore to when it was ok two days later i downloaded windows updates thats when it stopped working I have just done a system restore to when it was ok and it worked fine I then done windows updates again but only a few at a time checking as i went along to see if the recorder still worked and it did untill the last two updates which were driver one for Via tech multi media dated 18/06/2003 The other for logitech image 7.00.1221. after installing those two drivers the recorder stopped working.
Know the question how can i remove those last two windows updates,I HAVE DELETED LOGITECH PROG
I BELIEVE THE VIA TECH IS MY MOTHER BOARD WHICH AS A BUILT IN SOUNDCARD. THIS MY BE A BIT OF RUBBISH BUT HELP WOULD BE GREATFULLY RECEIVED.
IF THATS POSSIBLE
ONCE AGAIN REGARDS KIMO
