Preferred Solution: No USB Audio CODEC no matter what I do.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No USB Audio CODEC no matter what I do.

Tried plugging it into different USB ports, no dice. Tried running the supposed driver program that is on the CD that came with the mixer.Now, you'd expect something that said it was the Behringer audio driver to actually be the correct driver, yes? Yet I've run it now three times, rebooted every time, and every time I get With these details:So it's all ready to use! Except for the freaking driver. Which is no small detail.

Hello you lovely people it s me again I have a tendency to watch videos online - nothing of a less than legitimate nature I assure you - BUT there have been times when I ve attempted to watch a video on my Windows laptop and before the video will play this message is splashed across the embedded flash player that I need Codec-V to watch it Now what the heck is it - matter! for browsers any other that and IE Codec-V and and why do I need it when I ve already got stacks of codecs for the job as it is Also and this is something of a niggling Codec-V and IE - and any other browsers for that matter! issue with me until I just uninstalled it cause it getting right on my nerves in IE which keeps freezing for some reason and in Chrome my OS kept having this message pop up saying that codec-v exe needed to run would I like the program to make changes to my computer I click on the button to have it refrain from warning me about it and then click on deny my favorite button in this case but minutes later it does it again So Do we know exactly what purpose that program serves and is it REALLY necessary PLUS why the heck does my IE keep freezing on me I do also occasionally get other programs randomly hang but not crash It s annoying Windows Explorer does it from time to time as well Any ideas

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Alright guys my problem is simple I can t record any audio coming from my laptop whether it be a song playing in iTunes or streaming from a website I ve tried using Cool Edit Audacity Kristal and some MP WMA Recording program and whenever I press the Record button in these programs I just hear a fuzzing noise and nothing records I ve got a Dell Inspiron laptop and it uses SigmaTel audio device The device is slightly out of date my current one is like and the new one is or what!!! - record no from audio laptop matter Cannot something I can t remember exactly but anyway when I downloaded the new driver to try and update it I got an error message saying quot Device Object Not Present quot then it said to restart system and try setup again or something I googled this error but nothing really helped So I figured I d try rolling back the driver to see if anything happened but Windows said there were no previous drivers or models to Cannot record audio from laptop - no matter what!!! roll back to - screwed there as well I ve read help guides for Audacity that say to record audio from the computer you just have to select quot Wave Out quot or quot Stereo Mix quot from the Mixer Toolbar but my only options in the Toolbar are quot Line In quot and quot Microphone quot The funny thing is my sound works perfectly well I can hear everything that I play and I even ran a Diagnostics check F from boot to check the audio and I heard everything that it tested Interestingly however in my audio programs such as Cool Edit and Audacity there is an alternative device There of course is SigmaTel Audio as that is the one my laptop uses but there is a device called quot MME Microsoft Sound Mapper - Output quot in Audacity and quot Wave Mapper quot in the Wave Out section tab in Cool Edit Device Properties I m unsure as to whether I m supposed to have these alternatives I m mainly just confused as to why the hell I can t record audio from my laptop that s all I want to do And the fuzzing noise that starts whenever I press the Record button in any of my programs is really unnerving Any help you guys could give me would be much appreciated - I don t want to have to reinstall my O S Anyway if you need any additional System Information I will post from dxdiag or something Cheers sorry that I rambled on Andy nbsp

A:Cannot record audio from laptop - no matter what!!!

Sigmatel audio cards have weird problems getting recorders to work on them. The reliable solution I have found is a piece of freeware called Freecorder. It installs a browser toolbar which has record and stop buttons. Just play whatever you want and press record, then when you are done, press stop. Freecorder will record all sounds coming out of the speaker of your computer and will split it up into multiple pieces based on pauses in the sound (so if you are streaming multiple songs from a site, you will get the songs individually broken up instead of one massive MP3).

Do Audio Video Cables Quality matter much?

for example with Coax i know the gold connectors worked better then silver connectors. So my question is do the cables red yellow and white connectors have high and low quality cables or they all the same. If they have high quality cables what are the names of them and where can i find them.

A:Do Audio Video Cables quality matter much?

Red,White audio RCA are much the same.
It's haveing and useing a SVHS video cable instead of Yellow RCA.
If your TV has it for VCR's etc.that have it out.

Can't find a codec for that so it must be something very unusual and obscure. However, I suggest you try using a media player which can play almost anything you throw at it: VLC Media Player:

If VLC can't play it either I don't hold out much hope of being able to play it with anything else.

A:IDT Audio HD Codec

Have you tried reinstalling the correct drivers? IDT is the current company that owns what used to be SigmaTel and if you have a "SigmaTel" integrated sound module some times the newer IDT drivers will not work or work correctly. As you have a Compaq PC, first stop would be HP/Compaq and check for a sound driver there for your specific model. If they do not have a Win 7 driver but have a Vista driver download and install that and see what happens as a first step.

There could also be a connection problem between the front panel and the motherboard for the headset jack connection. With the PC powered off, open the case and reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector for the front panel Audio.

Normally I can fix any problem I or someone else creates. But this has me stumped.

I installed a few different DVD rippers (As demos only of course). Now, when I listen to a streaming audio it plays in double speed. For example. It plays seven seconds worth at double speed, then waits seven seconds, then plays seven seconds.

I have noticed that it does not do this on pre-recorded files that I receive as an audio stream, just the actual live voice stream, like live radio shows. The commercials are normal, but the broadcast is at double the rate.

Rather than remove everything or rolling back to a previous date, anyone have any thoughts?

And yes I have rebooted.

Thanks in advance.

It worked perfectly fine when I plugged it into an old laptop with WinXP, but I want to use it on my new desktop with Win7 32bit Home Premium.

i downloaded the audio codec from this site:
but once I double clicked the installation icon, a window pops up saying somwhere along these lines: this software does not have the windows XP logo, which means it has not been tested for compatibility with windows XP. Installation of software mays cause severe errors in the operating system.

now, i've already installed the codec, but now im worried whether the site downloaded from is a legit one, meaning i may have downloaded a virus/trojan/malware instead of the real thing, because my WMP still can't play sound for XviD encoded movies. so i am wondering, has anyone else encountered the same window when installing DivX codec for WMP?

Hi Problem Codec Audio everyone just recently got a new laptop and downloaded some avi files however when Audio Codec Problem i tried to watch them i apparently didnt have the right codecs so i downloaded a divx codec pack the video would then play but i was getting no sound and the program advised me to download an ac audio codec or something which i did however this also did not give me any sound while watching this movie file so i downloaded another couple of ac codecs and still no luck i also downloaded some ogg vorbis audio codec thing too and still no luck so i just gave up however just now i tried to play one of mp 's that i was listening to earlier and the volume was extremely low and distorted so i naturally thought that the problem would've been the codecs i installed i removed them all But now I am not getting no sound whatsoever When i try to play an mp in windows media player i get this Windows Media Player cannot play the file The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file and an error code which is this C D Cannot play the file Now i'm naturally assuming once again that i kind of need a basic codec audio pack or a windows one or something but i can't seem to find anything to help me i've tried system restore and no luck i've also been into the control panel to make sure my soundcard is selected etc i've also tried about different mp 's in different programs and neither will play them even though they all worked fine a few hours ago please help thanx

Hi, Micro, and welcome to the Forums.

You might try installing the Vista Codec package - see Vista Codec Pack - 32bit & 64bit Media Player Codecs for more details.

Note: If you're on x64, you still need to install the 32bit package *first* and then install the 64bit extensions package *Second*.

Im using a Dell Inspiron 1520 with sigmatel HD audio codec. Does my audio system have any support for a graphic EQ? Any 3rd party plugins or software upgrades that I can use? Ive spent many hours google-ing and I dont think Ive found any solutions yet. I really want an EQ to tweak my sounds with.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Ty!

Hi All

XviD video would not produce sound... great picture. Ran Gspot. Said I needed AC3 Audio Codec. DLed from Intall prog said install was successful. Checked file with Gspot and said the proper codec was now present. Tried to run the movie file with WMP. WMP crashes every time and, the best I can tell its because of the codec. Probably a conflict with another codec?

Frustration sets in.

Thanks for youe help in advance.

i downloaded the audio codec from this site:

but once I double clicked the installation icon, a window pops up saying somwhere along these lines: this software does not have the windows XP logo, which means it has not been tested for compatibility with windows XP. Installation of software mays cause severe errors in the operating system.

now, i've already installed the codec, but now im worried whether the site downloaded from is a legit one, meaning i may have downloaded a virus/trojan/malware instead of the real thing. so i am wondering, has anyone else encountered the same window when installing DivX codec for WMP?

Failed to get encoder for specified Codec.

I have TrueSpeech Installed (says so on WMP) However it doesn't initialize.

Q: Unable to initialize the codec. CODE = -10

-10 means the codec is found but is marked as disabled.

Double click "Audio Codec"
Double click on Microsoft GSM 6.10

Since I've just switched to vista I find it hard to navigate around the control panel since its so much different than XP. Can someone translate those XP instructions into Vista, or tell me how to initialize the codec.

Hi, I'm having an audio problem. Well with the current codec I can listen to music play games etc, but I can't hear sounds produced by the system itself like when using the task manager, if I visit a webpage with a flash video on it no sound it reproduced and so on. The codec I have isn't certified by Windows and I can't find one that is. I'll attach my dxdiag file if it helps.

According to DXDIAG, you don't have your soundcard drivers installed.
Do you have an integrated sound card, or a PCI sound card?
Also, what is your sound card manufacturer and model?

hey all. i'm having issues with the realtek HD audio drivers. i just installed the latest version (2.24 i think) and i have no sound. note, i did not have a prior working version under windows 7 - i just installed windows 7 RC today for the first time.

one possible issue is that it appears to be using the wrong codec - i believe that i need the ALC882 codec, but in windows 7, it appears to have installed the ALC885 codec.

anyone know how to change the codec?

A:Realtek HD Audio - wrong codec?

quick update, i was wrong about the codec - XP does in fact use ALC885.

that said, i resolved the issue using info from the second sticky in this forum (regarding editing the registry keys to reassign ports) and rebooting.

Hi, Here are a couple of thing to check. 1.  Shutdown the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu, then select f10 to enter the Bios Menu. Under the System configuration tab, expand 'Built in Device Options' and check that both 'Audio Device' & 'External Speakers' are both selected - save any change before exiting. 2,  If the bios shows the above options are already checked, try the following. Download the IDT HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the IDT device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the IDT installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

Okay, So, I have that thing, but Stereo Mix doesn't show up. I need to enable that option to record sound for a video recording program. I tried downloading drivers, but they aren't compatible. How do I make this option pop up? I have an Inspiron 1545, by the by.

A:IDT HD Audio Codec and the Stereo Mix Option.

If you are using Vista, make sure that when you are in the "Recording" tab, you are showing "disabled" devices. Under the list of microphones, etc, right click a blank space and select "Show Disconnected Devices". Then a source called "Rec. Playback" should come up. This IS stereo mix. Right click, enable it and then you can select it as your default device and use it from other applications, etc.
If you still don't see it, you may be a victim of Dell's strange policy of disabling Stereo Mix on some laptops. I personally have a Studio 1537 with IDT and it has Stereo Mix enabled, but Dell have restricted it in the past on some computers due to copyright protection.

Hi all,
Just purchased Sony DVD Burner that came with a beta version of Nero 7. Seems that this bata version does not come with the needed codec to play audio. I have spent several hours trying to track down the missing codec but to no avail. I have windows xp 2000 and plenty of power to run the programs but I am not literate enough to find and install the missing codec. Help! Any hand holding would be greatly appreciated.


PS. Sony gratiously offered to sell me the full version of Nero for about $80 and did not even offer an appology for selling a burner that does not even have appropriate software to make it work. The box does not even mention this deficiency or that the included Nero 7 was a bata version.

A:Audio codec for Nero 7 needed

Nero 7 would be a limited version if bundled with a DVD drive and Sony is partnered with Nero and has no other relationship or responsibility to support the Nero product. You'd have to contact Nero for that and I'm sure they would probably "encourage" you to buy the full version of Nero 8 but you could probably get it at an "upgrade" price which means it would be a little bit cheaper than full retail but it might be the same less expensive cost at Amazon so its not really much of a deal.

But concerning the audio codec problem, what are you trying to play that you don't have a codec for? There are many audio codecs used for different videos and for different purposes so just to say you are missing the audio codec doesn't describe the problem well enough.

I just installed WinXP Pro onto a new HDD with a new mobo. The entire install went fine. Before I installed the audio drivers from the disc that came with the mobo, I installed several audio codecs. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but my audio driver isn't working. If I go to the driver window where it should normally say: This device is working properly, it says something to the effect of: error 10. I've tried unintstalling it and reinstalling, with no change. I went into BIOS and switched from AC97 to Azalia for the audio, and it was set to Enabled.

This is an MSI mobo, MS 7508 or 7085 (not sure on the model #) with C-Media Azalia CMI9880L audio codec controller.

I think you will fine that you need different codecs for different avi files, so it's a good idea just to download a codec pack. Either from avi codec pack downloads - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET or the popular pack from DivX Plus Codec Pack

I went to Device Manager>Sound, video, and game controllers>IDT High Definition Audio CODEC and uninstalled the driver.

If I choose the install High Definition Audio Device, it successfully installs however the light does not come on for the mute button as well as the speakers are not as loud as they previously were. I also noticed that my Beats Audio Control Panel has been removed from my program list. Any suggestions or drivers available?

I was able to resolve the issue by looking up the audio drivers that came installed on the machine from the drivers webpage; however, it was a little difficult to figure out as the first few times, after selecting an operating system I did not select the change option. Maybe have the webpage auto update when a selection has been entered? Just confusing that it stated "change" when i had never selected anything to start with.

When I download music and videos and put them on a disc I can only replay them on my laptop. I use final down loader which is really fast and is suppose to convert them but I cant play them elsewhere. I'm not very good at this can someone help me?

A:I need a video/audio codec converter ?


but I cant play them elsewhere.

By "elsewhere" do you mean on a DVD player? DVD players won't play MPEG, AVI, QuickTime files or any of those everyday computer file formats. You would need to do DVD authoring with a program like DVD Studio Pro. That's a whole complex process. I believe some programs like Toast can burn some file types to DVD that will play on a DVD player but with limited capability. For example if you try to fast forward or run in slow-motion it will just lock up.

A:Idt high definition audio codec

Because of custom implementation by PC Vendors, IDT does not provide drivers on their web site, they direct you to the PC or Motherboard vendor for the drivers. I have an Intel motherboard with SigmaTel integrated audio, when I was using it (I have a separate sound card now) and later an IDT driver update, from Intel, I heard NO DIFFERENCE in sound quality between the drivers. I can be picky about sound as I have a Recording Studio.

If your PC Vendor, and I gather HP from your post, does not have an updated driver usually non HP drivers will either not work or not work correctly.

Hi scruffydog420

1) Go to Device Manager and uninstall the IDT item from the Sound... category.
2) Go to Device Manager and uninstall the graphics devices listed in the Display... category.
3) From the Dell Support Website download
-----> the Dell Notebook System Software
-----> the Intel Mobile Chipset Driver
-----> the Sigmatel Audio Driver

Install them in this order:
1) Install the Dell Notebook System Software
2) Reboot
3) Install the Intel Moblile Chipset Driver
4) Reboot
5) Install the Sigmatel Audio Driver
6) Install the Graphics driver that matches your hardware. It will be one of the following =
.....a) Radeon Mobility x1400
.....b) Intel G945GM
.....c) nVidia GeForce Go 7800
.....d) nVidia GeForce Go 7900S

The graphics drivers are on the following Dell webpages:
a) Radeon Mobility x1400
b) Intel G945GM
c) nVidia GeForce Go 7800
d) nVidia GeForce Go 7900S

If you are unsure which graphics device is in your laptop, visit, select Support, select Drivers, and enter the Service Tag number on the sticker on the bottom of your notebook --- it should list the device in your system. Note that you can find any other drivers that you might otherwise be missing there: such as for the network or the touchpad.

That should do it.
Best of luck
. . . Gary

[the "IDT" device listing is a misdetection, because Windows XP doesn't have enough information on the devices in your notebook].

It currently uses Conexant HD audio codecs... but here lately, whenever I record something with Fraps or Hypercam, the audio is bad... it sound garbled, to say the least. A friend I know all the way in Scotland uses Realtek HD codecs, and his Fraps records fine... incredible even.

Should I delete my Conexant audio codecs, and install Realtek codecs? I heard Realtek is better anyhoo, so i'll be upgrading my sound, right? Or do you guys believe that I should just leave it alone.

Thanks for helping me numerous times in the past

Any advice would be appreciated Thanks!

To easily install, go to device manager first. Then right click the Realtek audio, choose uninstall and also check the box to delete the driver.

This saves you a reboot in the process to install. When you run the installer, it won't demand a reboot before actually installing the driver.

Just like it says. I've tried numerous codec packs, but something about VirtualDub doesn't work. I'm trying to extract the audio from an AVI that used TCM for its encoding. Why is it that people always have to use the most obscure codecs they can find?
It plays just fine in WMP, and will show video in VirtualDub, but when loading the video gives an error regarding bitrate, and file info shows the audio as unknown, tag 0055. I used GSpot (and something else) and it says the audio is Mpeg-1, level 3.
I Dl'ed videoaudio extractor, and got it, but that's shareware. I don't do this stuff that often, so spending the cash to register it is kinda senseless. VirtualDub is free.

Hi. This is a pain to do, but follow to get up and running:

The DSP codec can be installed on Vista using the following procedure:
1. Acquire tssoft32.acm and tsd32.dll at - Downloads
The Download link is half way down the page.
2. Open the Windows\System32 directory
3. If tssoft32.acm is present, rename it tssoft32_old.acm. Either way, proceed to the next step
4. Place tssoft32.acm and tsd32.dll into the Windows\System32 directory
5. Create the following registry entry:
a. Folder (you may need to create some of these folders: KEY_CURRENT_CONFIG>Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Drivers32\msacm.trspch
b. Set REG_SZ value to: tssoft32.acm
c. No need to reboot, just close regedit
6. You can verify that the codec installed correctly by going to WMP 11\Help and clicking on “Technical Support Information”. A webpage will open listing all the codecs installed. If tssoft32.acm is listed, you’re set!

I have a new Intel DP965LT motherboard with "SigmaTel" audio control. I am running windows XP SP2. I have two sony DVD/RW burners. When using Adobe Elements to make a movie, audio is burned onto the disk but will not play back in either burner. (Plays great on the TV). I have sound for playback for other recorded files, such as Mpg or WMV that have been burned to DVD, but not for and movie-type DVDs. I seem to be missing a codec? I do have a list of audio codecs in Device manager, but under Sigmatel there is only one.
How do I find and install the proper codec(s)?

I have already checked that nothing is muted, that headphones haven't been selected, etc.

Hello.  Im the owner of a HP 620, and i recently installed Windows 8 Pro (x64). It detects the sound card and installs it, the device has no conflicts but it has no sound. I checked out this post: And i used the drivers recommended by the HP team however it still does not work. I reinstalled Windows 8 Pro and I tried to install those drivers provided again, but still they do not work for my HP 620. I also tried to download any other version from Microsoft Update Catalog, but none of them work. In Windows 7 the sound works perfectly. Any solution to this problem? PS. My hardware is an IDT 92HD88B3

When trying to edit a .avi file in Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 I get this message: Stream attributes could not be determined.
This is not the first time this have happened and I usually solve it buy running a codec finder program and download the suitably codec. But this did not work for all of the files this time.

The codec I downloaded this time was: Fraunhofer MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder

I get this information when I run the files that did not work in a codec finder program:
128 Kbps, 48,0 KHz, 16 bits, 2 channels, MPEG Audio (MP3) (Version 1) (Layer 3) (Joint stereo / MS Stereo)

In the files that worked because of the codec I downloaded I get this information:
128 Kbps, 48,0 KHz, 2 channels, MPEG Audio (MP3) (Version 1) (Layer 3) (Joint stereo / MS Stereo)

The only difference I can spot is the 16 bits part. Is it this that is the problem?

Is there anything i can do to watch this? Maybe get some other media player but i really dont want to download it again.. ( Big File )

A:Quick Question - Missing Audio Codec?

Sounds like you just need the correct codec. You can download a codec pack that covers most types of video - look at the K-Lite codec pack options, or Gspot is a tool that will tell you the codec you're missing.
You can get both here.

I have a Sony Vaio VGC-RC110G and installed W7 RC 32 bit and it went smoothly 'cept for 2 missing drivers. The main one is the sound device as it is NOT being read. I can't get any sound.

Tested a bunch of drivers (from Sony site and even updated sound drivers from Dell) and none worked.

Even downloaded some program called detective driver to help me find compatiable driver but I'd have to pay $30 to activate the program. I would but Im afraid it might not find it.
