Since there was a micro phone on my computer, I tried to record some sound tracks my self with Windows Sound Recorder:

1. Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder. The Sound Recorder window shows up.

2. Turn on micro phone and click the record icon. Sound recording starts for a length of 60 seconds.

3. Sing a short song. After 60 seconds, Recording stops automatically.

4. Click the play icon. The recorded sound plays well.

5. Click menu File > Save As. The Save As dialog box shows up. The default output file format is WAV, with PCM encoding of 22.050 KHz, 16 Bit, and Mono.

6. Save the recorded sound track to C:\temp\WAV\FirstRecord.wav.

7. Check the file size of FirstRecord.wav, 2,646,058 bytes. The matches the format attributes: 22,050 samples per second * 2 bytes (16 bits) per sample * 60 seconds = 2,646,000 bytes.
