Trouble with recording.

I have just started a French language course and every time I try to record it tells me it can't hear me or understand me. I have no trouble with microphone as it works for Skype and everything. I was wondering if any one else has had a similar issue? I know I can go on without this aspect of the course, but prefer to do it. Thank you.
