Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

Well whenever I try to skype call my friends, or even the test thing , it always drops the call and there's a yellow popup at the top that says, "Proem with recoring Divice" .. Including "
[5:07:01 PM] *** Call to Echo / Sound Test Service, no answer. ***" .

I have no idea what's wrong, I updated it twice this week, one about 2 days ago, anoter just a few minutes ago .. ><
Please help.. :sad:

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

What settings do you have for your microphone in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings?

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

Well it's in Auto Adjust, if I uncheck it, it will go to minimum by default ... :sad:



I just looked and it said

"Can't access your sound card"
with a little paragraph when I click the Red Bars in a skype Call..

But it's weird because I do have a sound card.. I can Listen to music, youtube, video's ...
And my mic is bran new, works with ventrillo , msn , etc ... Just not skype ?

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

What do you see in the dropdown box for your microphone? Are there more than one option available there?

My mic doesn't have any options, it's just a plug in headset .

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

Sorry, but I don’t understand what do you mean by “lost the box”. If I using my Skype open Tools -> Options -> Audio settings, then this is what I can see for the Microphone settings. What do you see in your Skype?

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

 when ever I try to adjust the blue dot, it will go back to the left by default (so I left it as auto adjust, which still doesnt work)... :sad:
I tried to send a screenie but it didn't work , the option is currently at "Realtek HD digital Input"

Re: Skype Call Failed: Problem with recording device.

If you click on the dropdown arrow on the Microphone settings box, do you have other options available? “Realtek HD digital Input” doesn’t sound right.
