LifeChat LX-3000 Recording Audio Problem, Please Help.


  • I have just baught the Lx-3000 Headset and i noticed there is other questions similar to this, but my Question involves two parts.

    1.Does the LX-3000 record for seperate audio things to make a audio file, or is it just simply for Windows Live Calls?

    2.From the response of question 1 if it is only for Windows Live Calls then thank you from that i have the answer to this, it not then how do i record audio files with the LX-3000 because i installed the software and everything (even though the software isnt displayed anywhere ) and when i try to record there isnt any vocals detected at all, but the earphones work fine.

  • Hi,


    First, I would like to say that it is able to record the sound with your LifeChat headset.


    you may refer to the following suggestions:


    1. Remove and reinstall Lifechat device


    1). Go to Start-> Control Panel (Classic View) -> System icon, and click Device Manager on the left.


    2). Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers


    3). See if the first or second entry is "Lifechat Lx-3000 Microphone ".


    4). Right-click on Lifechat Lx-3000 Microphone and select Uninstall.


    5). Unplug and plug the Lifechat Lx-3000 Microphone onto the computer.


    6). In the Device Manager, click the Scan for hardware changes button on the toolbar and let it scan your computer.


    7). When the system finds the new device, it will request to install the right driver.


    Note: If the wizard prompts for some driver Setup file, please download and install the latest driver for Lifechat Lx-3000 Microphone (3.57M)


    LifeChat 1.3 32-bit and 64-bit for Windows Vista
