I don't know if this will help or hinder people trying to use Audacity, but here is a photo list of how to do it.

First open Audacity, then go to File in the top left hand corner



Then drop down to Import and slide across to Audio...

Ooops, sorry my fault, I tidied up my Photobucket account and I put them all in a folder, I presume the addresses have changed. I'm on the case ;)

Thanks Taz, coincidentally I downloaded Audacity yesterday then found this guide. It's pretty easy and intuitive software, pretty good for a free download and I think easier to use than Cakewalk which I had previously used, which came bundled with a microphone. Unlike Cakewalk, Audacity doesn't suddenly slow down mid-take, which is a definite advantage!

There's some useful plug ins for audacity for reverb, compression etc.

This afternoon just to see what would happen I tried to open a YouTube MP4 or FLV with Audacity,
Low and behold up popped instructions on how to get Audacity to load and extract the audio from an MP4 or FLV, it was easy providing you read the instructions carefully.
I have Audacity 2.06, the instructions are different for earlier versions, but why not simply run the most recent.

Brilliant thanks again Jeanette. Did you get a reply to your last post here as I can imagine posting the same comment on Thursday evening when I give it my first attempt?
No but see the drop down menu top rightish where it says microphone, as long as the Zoom is connected to the pc first before loading audacity it usually picks it up and you can select it from the dropdown. :) If not choose Transport, rescan audio devices. Sometimes I have to reload audacity a couple of times to pick it up.
