Win ME. :badpc:

I cannot get a pass mark in the Skype audio test but all else is good. I can record from mic to Win Media Recorder and other recording software but not Skype. Anyone got experience of Skype please?

TIA

Whats your soundcard?

IIRC, they state that Skype isnt supported under Win9x/ME

Tried getting updated drivers for your card? Im willing to bet its the soundcard at fault here running on WinME :( Hate to be the bearer of bad news....

:) Thanks a bunch, I never thought that Win.ME wouldn't be supported with the new Skype 1.3.0.57 version. I'll try downloading an older version.

Thanks again.

Err.. Its not just the new versions AFAIK.

Ive had it working on Win98 with an older 1.0 release though if it helps :)

Dusty, I hope you will get it working.

Like others have said.. It's said to not work, with Win98/me.

But wishing to get it with Win98se, I looked at the Skype forums.

Many users said it works fine on Win98se, so I tried it..

And yes, it does. Should work for you.. I'm still using the 1.1.0.61 version.

Maybe the later V 1.3.0.57 could be a problem. Seems strange that your mic will record via other recording software, but not with Skype.
