Hello, my name is***** isn't a way to do it from the camera, but there is a way to do it on your computer. Are you computer savvy, enough to edit your movies?

This is bullshit - I have Windows 10 Beta and it will not let me respond to Russel in the Chat Room. I can only see his chats. I hit the enter button to try to get chat to open up and he acts like I talked to him. Please fix this. I am getting absolutely NO VALUE because I cannot do follow-up.

I have my Kodak hooked up to the computer now. How do I change the volume setting to get a louder recording?

This is a multi step process, but it's pretty handy once you get the hang of it.

Step 1, extract the audio. Click here, and use that website to extract the audio into WAV.

Step 2, amplify the audio. Click here, and install Audacity onto your computer. Open audacity, and drag the WAV file to it. Go to the effect menu and select AMPLIFY. Set the New Peak Amplitude value to -1 and click OK. Do that one more time, you'll see the WAV get bigger. Save the file.

Step 3, put the audio back into the video. Open Windows Movie Maker(or another video editing software) and open your movie file. Drag the WAV file to the movie file, and you'll have nominal sound.
