Even when I set the recording control in XP to 'Mono Mix' and unmute the mic, I
still cannot get my screen recorder software to record both sides of
a conversation in Skype, MSN msgr, etc.  On my laptop, I can,
but the laptop fan is too noisy so the recording is unusable.  I've
tried every imaginable setting in Volume control and recording control
and the audio settings in the Screen recording software (Screen
Recorder, Snag-it, BSR)--doesn't make any different, just the mic
input gets recorded.  Help!
There is no answer at this time.
