WaveIn stops after unplugging the Mic jack

Nov 4, 2012 at 12:39 PM


There's a strange problem with WaveIn. When I unplug the Mic jack, recording stops and I can't start it again. I just can start it again if I close the program and open it again.

I followed the problem and found that after unplugging the Mic jack, the program receives WaveInterop.WaveMessage.WaveInClose message.

I have an onboard Realtek High Definition Audio.

Thanks in advance

You should get a RecordingStopped message, probably with an Exception set. You'd need to dispose WaveIn, and create a new one to start recording again.

I exactly did that, but it doesn't work. To my surprise the windows native sound recorder program works exactly like my application. In both programs (my program and windows sound recorder) I have to close the program and open it again.

sounds like a driver problem then

Yes, but I just can't understand that what's the relation of this problem and closing the programs. It seems that something doesn't release after disposing the WaveIn. How it's possible?

I couldn't find the main problem of the software part, but I solved this problem by disabling the "front panel jack detection" in Realtek HD Audio Manager software. I hope it can help some one.
