Sound Recorder in Vista only saves in .wma format
Unless you have a N edition.
You might try Audacity
30 day trial, $20.
or use the old XP version:
I havenâ€™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!
