    Recording cellphone calls on PC

    I'm interested in how one would record an incoming phone call to your hard drive. I'd like to record both my side and the caller's side.

    What is the hardware required?

    What software would be useful?

    I don't really know how to go about any of this. I'd ultimately convert the audio into mp3 for storage.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    shouldn't be a problem as long as the person on the other end knows s/he is being recorded. in which case, he didn't ask about legality, he asked how to do it...in which i'm sorry to say i don't know.
    rebuilding carpc... kinda..

    Doh! Of course I would let the person on the other end know that I was recording the call. Not looking to do anything illegal here.

    I know that the creative software (their music player, I forget what its called) has a "record what you hear" option, so if it is playing throught the card it is recording it.
    AS for the legality,
    In many states the person on the other end doesnt have to know... as long as one party knows, and its not an anonymous tap. That is how they listened to Nixon constantly, and how Bush's friend tapped him when he was governor. He did it from a state where it was legal, so it didnt matter where Bush was.
    Sorry I couldnt be of more help.

    Well....because I'm considering starting a Podcast about car computing and I thought that the only time I would have to devote to it would be in my car between work and home. And I thought that doing interviews with people...like...YOU might be pretty cool rather than listening to me rattle on about stupid new car computing software products.

    And I thought it would be really cool to do it in the car on the actual carputer!

    What I think would be cool is a voice recoder for the carputer (using the built in microphone) that way, if a cop pulls you over, you can record the entire conversation, in case its something useful in court I had a cop pull me over told me this and that, then at court, he made up a new story (probably because he forgot the details of pulling me over that night)...it would have helped me win my case
