With the work I do I record my calls with my associates and they do as well. I did buy a recorder from radio shack but I want one that is on my computer instead so its easier to save certain conversations. I know there are alot of free software out there for this and i downloaded a few of them but i cant get them to work. I have a friend who is an IT guy that was supposed to help me but he is acting like I am being a major pain in the rear end. So I told him to take a hike and I will go to a great forum that I know of to get help. I am not that great with computers however. FYI I use the magicjack. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

One person says you need to use the sniffer function w/ Cain & Able
Another suggests
http://stepvoice.com/index.shtml @ $15

Another one uses Audacity

However, you'll have to switch to the headset mode and use a microphone to conduct the conversation.

I've tried many recording applications and none of them worked, including Audacity, if you are using the real phone to make the call instead of doing it via the PC headset/microphone.

Wow Garmanma thank you so much. I will review this and install tonight. You always seem to come to my rescue when I need something through the years. Thank you for that. Let me give you a tip. Buy silver! If your not in a position to buy just watch it. Its at 13.70 and climbing now. Wait till what you see it ends up at at the end of September. Thanks again! Hope it works.

This guy hooked the same recorder up that I did in the link you gave me. I would like to get Cane and able working so I can do it with my computer. It would be alot easier for me. I do have the setup that guy did in the video but I dont like it.

Ok Im thinking that Im not getting replys because I am asking about Cain and Abe and not many may know much about this. I am just looking for any free voice recorder that will run on my CPU and work with my magicjack. Anyone? AM I posting this in the wrong section mods?


EDIT: Let's find out

One additional aspect you may consider, in the limited replies is the culpability in advising you on a potentially illegal act. Not knowing the state or country you reside in. Recording calls may be illegal without notifying one or both parties. The statues vary from state to state and get more complex with multiple jurisdictions.

Some information on the various laws: United States Telephone Recording Laws

Thank you animal and I do understand this. I am a commodity broker and I work from home. So in the mornings myself and associates have conference calls about the markets and the economy amongst each other and we all shoot out ideas to use with our clients. We are all aware that it is being recorded and we only use this amongst ourselves. There is just too much info to type and remember so we have to listen to the recording over and over to take everything down.

Chugg
