when I run the following code(REcording),
It doesn't recording ! What is the reason.
Thank You for your help

void PDlg::OnRec()
{
      // TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
      UINT wDeviceID;
      MCI_OPEN_PARMS mciOpen;
    MCI_RECORD_PARMS mciRec;
    MCI_GENERIC_PARMS mciClose;
    MCI_SAVE_PARMS      mciSave;

      wDeviceID = mciOpen.wDeviceID;

    mciRec.dwCallback = 0;
    mciSendCommand(mciOpen.wDeviceID, MCI_RECORD, MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)&mciRec);
      mciSave.lpfilename = "xxx.wav";
      mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_RECORD, MCI_TO | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciRec);
      mciSave.dwCallback = 0;
      mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_SAVE, MCI_SAVE_FILE | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciSave);
    mciClose.dwCallback = 0;
    mciSendCommand(mciOpen.wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, (DWORD)&mciClose);
// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here

You miss out many parameters in your code. You can use the following example code, which is from the documentation.


Recording with a Waveform-Audio Device

The following example opens a waveform-audio device with a new file, records for the specified time, plays the recording, and prompts the user to save the recording if desired.

// Uses the MCI_OPEN, MCI_RECORD, and MCI_SAVE commands to record and
// save a waveform-audio file. Returns 0L if successful; otherwise,
// it returns an MCI error code.
DWORD recordWAVEFile(DWORD dwMilliSeconds)
{
    UINT wDeviceID;
    DWORD dwReturn;
    MCI_OPEN_PARMS mciOpenParms;
    MCI_RECORD_PARMS mciRecordParms;
    MCI_SAVE_PARMS mciSaveParms;
    MCI_PLAY_PARMS mciPlayParms;

    // Open a waveform-audio device with a new file for recording.
    mciOpenParms.lpstrDeviceType = "waveaudio";
    mciOpenParms.lpstrElementName = "";
    if (dwReturn = mciSendCommand(0, MCI_OPEN,
        MCI_OPEN_ELEMENT | MCI_OPEN_TYPE,         (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciOpenParms))    {
        // Failed to open device; don't close it, just return error.
        return (dwReturn);
    }

    // The device opened successfully; get the device ID.
    wDeviceID = mciOpenParms.wDeviceID;

    // Begin recording and record for the specified number of
    // milliseconds. Wait for recording to complete before continuing.
    // Assume the default time format for the waveform-audio device
    // (milliseconds).
    mciRecordParms.dwTo = dwMilliSeconds;
    if (dwReturn = mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_RECORD,
        MCI_TO | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciRecordParms))
    {
        mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, NULL);
        return (dwReturn);
    }

    // Play the recording and query user to save the file.
    mciPlayParms.dwFrom = 0L;
    if (dwReturn = mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_PLAY,
        MCI_FROM | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciPlayParms))
    {
        mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, NULL);
        return (dwReturn);
    }
    if (MessageBox(hMainWnd, "Do you want to save this recording?",
        "", MB_YESNO) == IDNO)
    {
        mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, NULL);
        return (0L);
    }

    // Save the recording to a file named TEMPFILE.WAV. Wait for
    // the operation to complete before continuing.
    mciSaveParms.lpfilename = "tempfile.wav";
    if (dwReturn = mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_SAVE,
        MCI_SAVE_FILE | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciSaveParms))
    {
        mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, NULL);
        return (dwReturn);
    }

    return (0L);
}

How to assign the  dwMilliSeconds?
 dwMilliSeconds=1000 //(1000 HZ)

dwMilliSeconds specifies time in millisecond. If you want to record for 3 seconds (== 3000 milliseconds), dwMilliSeconds = 3000;

When I check it, It is PCM Mono,11.142Hz
Can I change to 8 bits Stereo?
And The Record file (temp.wav) is created.
However, the content is empty, (No sound in the wav file)
That file is only 1 bytes.
The Coding is not right?
--------------------------
void CAPhoneDlg::OnRec()
{
UINT wDeviceID;

DWORD dwMilliSeconds=0.0000001;
MCI_OPEN_PARMS mciOpenParms;
MCI_OPEN_PARMS mciOpen;

MCI_RECORD_PARMS mciRecordParms;
MCI_SAVE_PARMS mciSaveParms;
MCI_PLAY_PARMS mciPlayParms;
MCI_GENERIC_PARMS mciClose;

mciOpenParms.lpstrDeviceType = "waveaudio";
mciOpenParms.lpstrElementName = "";
mciSendCommand(0, MCI_OPEN, MCI_OPEN_ELEMENT | MCI_OPEN_TYPE, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciOpenParms);

wDeviceID = mciOpenParms.wDeviceID;

mciRecordParms.dwTo = dwMilliSeconds;
mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_RECORD, MCI_TO | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciRecordParms);

// Play the recording and query user to save the file.
mciPlayParms.dwFrom = 0L;
mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_PLAY, MCI_FROM | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciPlayParms);


mciSaveParms.lpfilename = "temp.wav";
mciSendCommand(wDeviceID, MCI_SAVE, MCI_SAVE_FILE | MCI_WAIT, (DWORD)(LPVOID) &mciSaveParms);

//???
//??? I hope close all pointer and files. The following code is right?
mciClose.dwCallback = 0;
mciSendCommand(mciOpen.wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, 0, (DWORD)&mciClose);

Of course it is empty since you record just 0.0000001 milliseconds. You can use MCI_SET command (MCI_WAVE_SET_CHANNELS) to change the recording format.

DWORD is 32-bit integer. 0.0000001 for DWORD is zero.

I want it to record until the user clicks STOP.  I guess I use a callback.  Anyone know they syntax?
