I turned off my mic in error and have turned it on. Now when I try to record myself speaking, it doesn't pick up my voice. I have checked that it is all on in settings and in my control panel and as far as I can see its all functioning as it should. Any ideas.......thanks.
Did you check the settings here? If not, look under YOUR USER NAME on the top black bar (to the right), click it and then choose SETTINGS, then click the mic on under settings. After that, maybe try shutting down the computer, and turning it back on (clearing the cashe). *NOTE: I'm not a computer tech, I just play one on TV. ;-)
The mic part depends on Adobe Flash. If you have set your privacy settings (which I strongly recommend you do!), you could have globally disabled the mic. Check with the settings manager: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager06.html (Yes, you go to a web page to change the settings for your local computer. Odd.)
