    I've been recording some of my lectures with the notebook function of Word MAC 2004, but I'm recently having the problem that sometimes, when I try to stop the recording, the program becomes unresponsive (with the dreadful beach ball spinning forever). I've tried already to patiently wait for something to happen but I ultimately have to force quit the application.

    The main issue is that, even if I've just saved the file before trying to stop recording, when I reopen the file, the audio notes in the document are always lost (or at least unaccessible from word) :confused:. Is there a way to manually retrieve this recordings... I mean, they must be around somewhere in the hard drive (since when the program is still frozen you can see they were taking several megabytes).

    I would really appreciate suggestions, there are several important lectures that I need for revising and, since I was relying in the audio notes, my manual notes are not as complete as they should.

    Thanks!!
