    Does anyone knows how can record a sound from an available microphone?

    To help others with similar problem, I'm posting a solution though its late by 9 months :p

    I would have achieved sound recording in C# by using mciSendStringA in winmm.dll.

    First import the dll :
    [DllImport("winmm.dll", EntryPoint = "mciSendStringA", CharSet = CharSet.Auto]
    private static extern int mciSendString(string lpstrCommand, string lpstrReturnString, int uReturnLength, int hwndCallback);
    Now, create a new device (named MyRecorder) :
    mciSendString("open new type waveaudio alias MyRecorder", "" , 0, 0);
    To start sound recording :
    mciSendString("record MyRecorder", "" , 0, 0);
    To save the recorded sound (to C:\MySound.wav):
    mciSendString("save MyRecorder C:\\MySound.wav", "" , 0, 0);
    To stop recording sound :
    mciSendString("close MyRecorder", "" , 0, 0);
    That's it !

    For complete list of MCI Strings, go here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms710815(VS.85,loband).aspx

    I hope this post would be useful to many :smile:.
