OK, I assume either "user" or hardware problem.
If you hear nothing in the recording, you may have recorded 111 minutes
of silence. (Don't worry about the time display, this is often wrong with
VBR files with broken headers but does not affect the mp3 playback at all)
The reason could be that you selected the wrong source (maybe line-in instead
If that's not the case try listening to the recording over the headphone while it
runs or watch the level meter. This should give you feedback that something is
recorded. This should always play back.
