Here lately my Recorder has started initializing on Win Start up at the EXTREME lower portion of my screen almost hidden behind the task bar.  It used to orpn at the top left of my screen.  How do I get it to move back to that position??  Version 3.1 and the latest Skype 5.10.0.116 and Win7 Pro.

1. You can temporary hide task bar, to get it.
2. You can edit settings file, to change starting positing
 - close MP3 Skype recorder, right click on recorder icon in system tray and choose Exit
 - look for settings file. Path for Windows XP will look like
  C:\Documents and Settings\[your windows username]\Local Settings\Application Data\Alexander_Nikiforov\MP3_Skype_Recorder.exe_Url_rttyapoey00k3qd0mc3ntgkhl5tno54t\3.1.1.2
   for Windows 7
  C:\Users\[your windows username]\AppData\Local\Alexander_Nikiforov\MP3_Skype_Recorder.exe_Url_rttyapoey00k3qd0mc3ntgkhl5tno54t\3.1.1.2\user.config
 (random part rttyapoey00k3qd0mc3ntgkhl5tno54t can be different)
 - open this file with notepad
 - change the following values to zero
     <setting name="StartXYpos" serializeAs="String">
                <value>0, 0</value>
     </setting>
 - save file
 - start recorder

Please note that part of the path are hidden folders. Make sure you can see them.
- go to Control Panel->Folder options-> View
- check Show hidden files,folders or drives
- click OK to save settings

 I have today downloaded and installed MP£ Skype recorder 3.1. It seems to work but after a while I get a message saying "MP3 Skype Recorder has encountered an issue and needs to close" Tried removing and re-installation 3 times but still the same. 
Windows XP SP3 and all current updates

I have also downloaded a new version of skype,updated my windows. and tried re-installing thsi many times. KIt states that the root element is missing and faisl to initilaise. Thanks for advice.

Hi there, I have uninstalled thsi programme multiple times, attempted to repair it and then re-installed. It says the root element is missing and it won't work. I cannot see what I'm doing wrong - as it says the configuration fails to initialize I am at a loss as to what else to do to make it work. Thak you for your help.

I have tried to reapir my skype MP3 recorder but it says this-
System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Configuration system failed to initialize ---> System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Root element is missing. (C:\Users\Gill\AppData\Local\Alexander_Nikiforov\MP3_Skype_Recorder.exe_Url_rttyapoey00k3qd0mc3ntgkhl5tno54t\3.1.1.2\user.config) ---> System.Xml.XmlException: Root element is missing.
   at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(Exception e)

Configuration file is corrupted.
Just delete the following file C:\Users\Gill\AppData\Local\Alexander_Nikiforov\MP3_Skype_Recorder.exe_Url_rttyapoey00k3qd0mc3ntgkhl5tno54t\3.1.1.2\user.config.
The program will create a new healthy one on the next launch.

Please note that part of the path are hidden folders. Make sure you can see them.
- go to Control Panel->Folder options-> View
- check Show hidden files,folders or drives
- click OK to save settings

I have been getting the following message after using this with mo isues before-See the end of this message for details on invoking

I've answered you above. I've placed your question to FAQ in case somebody having similar issue.
http://voipcallrecording.com/content/error-root-element-missing

My Skype recorder stopped working.  I am using Version 3.1 for the recorder and the version right before 6.0.0.120 was the version of Skype right before where my Recorder stopped working.  As I updated Skype, the recorder still is not working.

I am using Windows 7 home version for my OS.

I just noticed that 3 days ago was the last time that my recorder stopped working, if you need a time reference.

I've tested this Skype version with Windows 7, no problems were found. Please check that recorder is allowed to access Skype:
Start Skype and sign in with the account you are going to record.
Choose Tools from the upper menu and click Options.
In the new window click Advanced tab on the right and click "Manage other programs' access to Skype" (bottom)
Look for MP3Skype recorder.exe in the list (could be few) and check that it is marked "Allowed to use Skype".
If not allowed click Change button, select allow and save your settings.

I love this program -- thank you. There's one problem I've encountered, though, and it happened again today. I began recording a Skype call. Then I stopped the recording after 15 seconds and played it back just to make sure the levels were OK. Everything was great, so I started recording the call again. I clicked the Record button, and the message at the bottom of the recording read, "Recording: ON."  But when I was finished with the call 20 minutes later, only one file showed up in my destination folder: this file was the original 15-second test; the 20-minute call didn't record.  I've searched everywhere on my computer for this 20-minute call and I can't find it.  In the future, if I stop a recording in the middle of a call, do I need to close MP3 Skype Recorder and then re-open it if I want to start recording again?  Or is there something else I'm doing wrong?  I'm using Windows 7 and Skype 5.10.0.116.  Thanks--

I can't recreate the issue. Start-stop-start working fine on my system. I'll perform more test

Thanks! Let me know if you find anything.

 When i use the recorder to record a call on skype the person i am talking to in the call cannot hear me while it is recording, but if i stop the recording and go back to listen to it in the .mp3 file i can hear myself and the other person on it fine,  I also have the same problem when i try to record myself talking to the echo test service (cant hear myself in the call when it says i should).  While if i dont use the recorder at all my microphone works fine and the other person can hear me.

That is strange. Try to update Skype. Skype recorder is using Skype API to get audio stream and looks like somthing is going wrong in Skype in your case.

 Hey, I just have one quick question. I have the latest version of Skype and the MP3 Recorder. My friends and I record gaming footage for Youtube. While I'm talking, and if one of my friends talks at the same time (this happens even if there are only 1 other person in the call), it decides to cut out what I'm saying and keeps in what my friends say. Is there a way to fix this problem? Sorry if it's hard to understand my question, but it's hard to explain. It's as if my volume decreases dramaticly and my friends' volumes stay the same. It only happens if we talk simutaniously. I record with the Mono option with 64 bit rate. Thanks!

 Try switching to stereo mode. Each of your voices will be in separate channel. Stereo mode is better for sound editing as you can adjust levels for each voice separately. Anyway you can mix it to mono later and add to footage.

 
Hi, there --
I really love your software and have used it for years. However the last two calls I've made -- calls around 30-45 minutes -- the recorder cut off about halfway through both times (at just after 15 minutes for one, around 17 minutes for the other). I have Windows 7, and the latest Skype and MP3 Skype Recorder. Nothing interrupted either call, and there was no indication that the recorder wasn't recording. Can you help?

Assuming that you've try to reinstall the recorder and using the latest version, check that nothing is blocking connection between Skype ans Skype recorder. Like personal firewalls etc, which is unlikely as there are some recordings done, but anyway check this.
Try to update/reinstall Microsoft .NET Framework. It is big framework and corruption of some files could lead to unexpected errors/behaviour. Upgrade to the latest version of Skype.
You can always check the recording progress if look on the bottom of recorder. There should red string showing current recording file size increasing during recording.

I'm using Windows 7 (64-bit) and skype 5.10.0.116.
Every time I start or end Outlook 2010, MP3 Skype Recorder (v3.1) crashes.
Any idea what's causing that?

This may indicate that Microsoft .NET Framework is corrupted. Try to update/reinstall it.

I have Skype Version 5.10.0.116   when I open the recorded file to play it, Media Player opens but will not play the recording. The message is that the format is not supported by Media Player

 Normally Media Player should work with recordings. Try free Winamp player

 Skype recoder has correct permissions and used to record skype call automatically.
Everything indicates it is ready to record just waititng  for Skype call, but does not launch.
Now, it is not working -- recording when I start a call.
Where should I look?
using Skype 5.10.0.116  OS=XP serv pack 3

I've tested the recorder with this version of Skype, should be working fine. What is status of recorder, bottom string? Is it "Connected to Skype; Recorder:ON"?
Check that no personal firewall or security software is blocking connection between Skype and Skype recorder. Check that destination folder exist and you have permission to create files in there. Just try to create text file in that folder.
Try full reinstallation of recorder - uninstall, restart, install back. Try reinstalling skype.
 

Failed to save settings: Unable to save config to file
3.1
Win7 64bit
 
What I tried to make it run:
1) deinstall and reinstall
2) Give all permissions to the file in question
The only way it's working is as administrator ...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

 Hi, I was wondering if there was a setting of the following:
I have recorded conversations couple weeks / months ago.
When I go to a folder to look at the recording, it's gone.
Is there a setting where the program deletes mp3s of xxx days old?
Thank you

The recorder never deletes files and there are no such settings. Probably you have changed target folder for recordings. Try searching for mp3 files on your hard drive.
 

 Thanks for the reply

 My OS is Windows 7 an I have the latest version of Skype. 
the recorder isn't responding when I use it. 
what should I do?

 What is 'not responding'?
If it's not recording, then check the following: 
Recording button is pressed for automatic recording.
Open Skype. Click Tools->Options->Advanced tab->Manage other programs' access to Skype(bottom of the window). Look for MP3SkypeRecorder.exe and check if to is marked as Allowed to use Skype. If not then click Change and OK to save changes.

  Good morning 
I am currently encountering a problem using MP3 skyped recorder, 
I can hear my voice in the recording but I coudn't hear the recoding of the one that I talked with 
Please help me. 

Check that both speakers are working on your PC. The recording is stereo your voice should be coming from one speaker ant the one's you talking to from another.
Alternatively you can use mono mode.

Getting a debug error on install. Using Skype 5.10.0.116. Program will not execute. Fresh install.

 I was recording a skype GROUP call and for some reason when I click record and stop it doesn't record anything what is the problem?

- You can check if the recording is in progress by checking status bar (bottom) of recorder. There should be changing figures shown actual size of mp3 file, it should be changing/increasing during recording.
- Allow MP3 Skype recorder automatically start and stop recording. Just leave recording button pressed to make it automatically record all calls.

I found an error where the files are not being saved to the folder, skype did not promt allow acess and i can't locate the nessary files or anything else. help?
 

 You can "allow access" manually. Go to Skype->Options->Advanced tab -> Manage other programs' access to Skype.

Hi,
I'm using MP3 Skype Recorder 3.1 and Skype 5.10.0.116
I made a long conversation (more than 3 hours) yesterday in the evening and however I checked it more times if the recording is on, and I turned the rcording off, in the end there was no file in the folder to store the conversations. I looked for it all over the computer but I found nothing in the end. it's a shame because the conversation was an online interview for a research.
I used the program before for the same purpose and there was no problem. Now I made everything the same way like before. Two strange things happened during the conversation. Once the skype connection went wrong but only for a moment, we did not have to make a new call, and there was no sign that the recording turned off, I checked it. In the end there was no file neither from this part of the conversation. The second strange thing was that the recorder did not turned off itself in the end of the conversation like at other times, I had to push the stop button. And after that I wanted to check the quality of the record and I found ot that there is nothing to check.
Is there any possibility to find the file somewhere?
And what can I do if I want to make sure in the future the success of the recording? Do you have any suggestions? Is there any other software what I could use at the same time when I'm using Skype and the MP3 Skype recorder just to make it sure?
Thanks a lot in advance!

 I and several employees share recordings from SKYPE RECORDER. Recently when we share a recording via an attachment to an email, only one side of the conversation can be heard. The other side is not even getting recorded. How can we fix this problem?
