Saving audio file in wav instead of wma
I need to record audio files in wav format but Vista automatically saves it
in wma and doesn't give me the option of using another format. Anyone know
how to change the settings to allow me to save my files in wav instead?

Thanks

Re: Saving audio file in wav instead of wma
Sound Recorder in Vista only saves in .wma format
Unless you have a N edition.

You might try Audacity
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows
free

or Cooledit
http://coolrecordedit.com/features.html
30 day trial, $20.

or use the old XP version:
I haven’t trried this, but I found these instructions...

To get the old recorder to work on Vista, do the following:
1. Copy the %SystemRoot%\System32\sndrec32.exe file from a Windows XP
computer to your Vista machine.
2. Right-Click the file and choose Run as Administrator. (This is required
so that it can write one-time registry entries).
3. Now you can just double-click that icon and the old app will work!
