    Why can't I add narration now ?

    ralph r harveys

      I have added narration in the past on previous versions of Premiere elements and on Pre 10 but in the last 2 weeks I get an error when I click on the red record button I get a error message that my audio hardware selection does not have any input channels and I should go to Preferences, Audio Hardware to correct this.

      I go to Preferences Audio hardware and and it shows Premiere elements WDM Sound and next box has ASIO setting. I click on these and I see no other possibilities or choices.

      I still have Pre 8  loaded and the narration will not work now on it with the same error.

      What could cause this after narration has always worked in the past?

          Welcome to the forum.

           

          What is the make/model of your mic.?

           

          What is the connection type?

           

          What is the make/model of your sound card/chip?

           

          Do you have the latest driver for that sound card/chip installed?

           

          In a program, like Windows Recorder, does the mic. work fine?

           

          In Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, does your mic. show up with no errors, or warnings?

           

          What is the ASIO setting now?

           

          Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.

            Bill I believe I have answered your questions If not get

            back to me and I will try. I am a Snowbird in a motorhome traveling in AZ. And

            the internet comes and goes from time to time. And being a senior my computer

            skills leave me at a disadvantage. I really appreciate you trying to help me.

             

            Thank You

            All drivers have been updated and rechecked for updates

            today all were current.

             

             

            When in project and I click (Edit, Preferences, Audio

            Hardware) The box opens with Default device shown as Premiere Elements WDM

            sound. Then when I click ASIO settings a new window opens showing Logitech H

            150 as default device.( Left Panel 3.5 MM External Jack)  I also use this in Skype for phone calls and

            also tried it in Windows Movie Maker and it works OK.

             

            In the ASIO box there is 3 other choices:

             

            Speakers (High definition Audio Device)

             

            Digital Audio (S/PDIF) (High definition Audio Device)

             

            Laptop internal (High definition Audio Device)

             

            I Have tried all 4 devices with the same results

             

            When in project and clicking on Audio, Add narration, the (Record

            voice narration) window pops up and when I clink the microphone box to choose

            mic the box lights up but no choices show.

             

            In Control Panel, device mgr I do not see the Logitech  h 150 listed

             

            Narration was working till about 2 weeks ago. I do not

            believe I have changed anything.

             

            A bout 3 days ago I uninstalled Premiere el 10 and Photoshop El 10 and reinstalled both, I thought that may help but no change
