Why can't I save .WAV files in Windows Vista Sound Recorder
Sound Recorder in Vista only saves in .WMA format instead of .WAV format unless you have a N edition. This is bizarre since Windows Vista uses .WAV files for it's system sounds.
You might try Audacity which is free:

To get the old sound recorder to work on Vista, do the following:
1. Copy the %SystemRoot%\System32\sndrec32.exe file from a Windows XP computer to your Vista machine.
2. Right-Click the file and choose Run as Administrator. (This is required so that it can write one-time registry entries).
3. Now you can just double-click that icon and the old app should work!
