Windows XP will let you expand your system memory to 2 GB

However, Microsoft has confirmed (specifically on XP and a few other versions of Windows) there is a known design limitation in Sound Recorder and not because of any problem with the underlying multimedia If you try to record a .wav file by using Sound Recorder on a computer that has more than 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM, you receive the following error message:

Not enough memory available to complete this operation Quit one or more applications to increase available memory, and then try again.
