I sometimes need to run my companys application and record the spoken messages for demo's etc. Previously, I did this simply by playing the messages through the laptop speakers and at the same time using the Windows Sound Recorder to record it from the laptop microphone (I didn't even need to use external speakers or microphone).
Now, with the new T420s that I have, when I speak into the laptop microphone it records my voice fine but when I use an application to play messages through the laptop speakers, the recorder does not pick up an sounds......is this a result of this "combo" port........if so, is there any way round it ?

When I use audacity, it doesnt get any sound either......it seems like the fact that the application grabs the audio output port for the speakers and so the microphone cannot hear anything and thus nothing can be recorded.......this worked fine on my previous laptops that didnt have combo ports......
