Having problems recording sound my Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone, I have had this microphone for about 6 months and i haven't used it in about 3. The last time i used it, it worked normal and everything was good, but now whenever i try to record sound all i get back is this rustling/scratching noise. I tried running programs such as ventrilo and skype, but on those i got the same result. I have already updated my drivers, made sure it was the primary device, and adjusted the microphone level to the maximum with no success.I am running on Vista 32-bit if that makes any difference.


    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi Akuris,

    I suspect it is due to physical connection or faulty hardware.

    Connect the Microphone to another computer as a test.

    Please also go to device manager, right click on the autio card and click "scan for hardware change".
