View Full Version : Voice Rec on NX
04-16-2003, 03:35 AM
I have a little problem with the build-in app "Voice Rec".
When I use the LP mode to record something, I can hear it from my Clie, however, after I transfered it to my computer, it seems that my computer don't reconize the format of the LP mode of the recording.
If I use SP mode to record, it works fine on both Clie and Desktop. Is there some special codec that I have to use to listen to the wav file that was encoded in LP mode? If so, what codec do I need?
I have recorded a 1 hour 45 min lecture, but now, I can't hear it.
:..( Please help me.

What software did you use to play the sound files? They are recorded in simple WAV format, so they are playable with Windows Mediaplayer, Winamp, Realplayer and even with the good old Audiorecorder that is/was to be found in the Windows Accessory folder.
I tried both SP and LP and had no difficulty to play them with any of the above applications on my PC. Perhaps you should try another audio player than the one you used before.
Good luck! :)

LP will not directly play on older computers without the appropriate codec. I just use Irfanview. It's freeware. Go to downloadnow.com and pick it up.
Already posted. Do a search on the forum. There are many answers to that problem.

thank you for the reply everyone.
However, the problem is still there. I use both Windows Media Player and Winamp, both don't work on my computer.
And there was somthing interesting happened when I use the voice recoder with my windows xp, it gave me an error message says that the hardware is unable to playe that sound file (or something similar, I don't exectly remember what the message was since I am away from my own computer).
I have even downloaded the Irfanview to try it out, but still no luck.
This make me think that it is something wrong with my driver (or maybe really the hardware)
I am using windows xp, soundblaster live! with the latest driver from sound blaster, do anyone have the same problem? right now I just wanna see if I am the only person who have this problem.
I have done some search on this forum and on the internet before I come to ask, there don't seem to have any info about this. (maybe I use the wrong keywords to search)
thank you again, everyone.

i think maybe you need a codec?
are you using SP or LP?
I am using -besides my better Win2k- XP as well. XP natively supports the MS Export feature as well as both of the recording formats. It seems you have a hardware probelm(as your error message states). Try looking in your hardware manager for exclamation or question marks. If this is not so, post a very short (2secs) voice recorded wav. The others and me will check this out..

I had the same problem and asked the same question a few days ago. After all the great replies and testing several software titles, I found a solution.
I downloaded quicktime pro. I use it to open the *.wav files and then use the export feature to export it as a *.wav file. It exports it in something that all my *.wav players can play.
I works well for me, I highly recommend that solution.
Maybe it is a compressed wave-file?
For QT mostly saves it uncompressed...
