    Default last 1 or 2 minutes of conversion lost

    I am converting to MP3 via the sound card driver. Some times I do not get the last 1 to 2 minutes of the original file in the MP3 file. I am assuming the remainder of the file is fine (no problems noticed).
    This does not always occur, I usually set record time to original file play time plus 5 minutes but have extended by an hour and still had the problem. Not sure why it works when it does as the input is the same.

    Try and record using stream capture instead of audio. Apparently this site has a lot of different streams and AV can handle only so many in audio format. Thanks.

    I was playing a file to create an MP3 version.

    What I think was happening was when I was near the end of the recording I would start doing some other work while waiting for it to finish.

    It appears I was triggering other sounds (appointment reminder sound, etc) that were interfering with the recording (which I did not hear as speakers turned down). At one point my entire 6 hour recording consisted of a 5 second windows wav file and this is when I realized what was happening.

    I thought that sending another sound through the sound card would only inter fer with the recording rather than terminating it.
