I have a simple Sound Recorder, was working just fine after a few days until now...it just suddenly stop giving sound why is that?

Can anyone recommend a software package I could use to record sound for longer periods of time ?
Here's a fix/workaround if you want to use the one bundled with XP.
I think it tried it in XP and it worked, but that was years ago.
If you're a developer and want to programatically build a sound recording application or need to do so programatically*, then check out the Coding4Fun Developer Toolkit which includes a DirectX Sound Recorder application with the ability to change the sample rate and sample size.
* You could use this programatically with a motion sensor web cam that, when it senses movement, automatically starts the mic recording in your home and emails you the sound file after some time interval.
I miss the Windows 3.1 sound recorder app myself.
