I am trying to record sound (words for a spelling game called Ray's Spelling) for my children. I have connected a microphone into the connection at the back of my PC but the sound recorder doesn't appear to work. When I try to record my voice using the sound recorded all I get is a hissing sound. When I try to record a word using the game (Ray's Spelling) I can only just about hear the word if I turn on my PC speakers to full volume.

Can anyone help please?

This solution is for the people who are using Windows XP
Go to -->Start
-->All Programs
-->Volume Control

- Now, you 'll see the Master Volume window appearing.
- In the Menu Bar,
-->Click on Options
-->Click Advanced Controls

- Now, you 'll see the Advanced button appearing in below the MIC section. Click on that Advanced button.

- You 'll see the a small window Advanced Control for MIC appearing:
In this small window, at the bottom, you 'll see the option 1 Mic 20db with check box. Check that check box [i.e, mark the check box].

Close the window.
That's it. You're done. You record your voice and enjoy.
Have a good day!
