i'm on XP SP 2, soundcard = Creative Soundblaster Live!
i can't use the default mic on the web cam properly, it has very loud static (with/without the noise cancellation feature turned on)
I tried using Windows > Entertainment > Sound Recorded to test
and indeed static sound zzzzzzzz is recorded all the time even with no other sound recorded, thus i can't use it to chat online as the static is very loud. I have enscure in 'Audio properties' i am using the mic correctly
the cam is connected to the com thru USB only, thus shldn't be a prob of the soundcard mic port
tried updating to latest drivers, but same prob.
is mine a faulty set?
below are 2 same samples recorded
'error with cancellation feature.wav'
'error without cancellation.wav'
