I have the PC also but I just tried it again and every time I go back to the jail to let Emmit hear it. It just says "I don't know what that will do" The recorder is green for at least 15 seconds while recording but nothing seems to work. Even in the hints it's telling me to record him. Does anything happen to let you know you've got a good recording of him? I just followed him 3 trips back and forth this last time. The first time I just recorded him for a few seconds but neither is working? I'm about ready to forget this game, very annoying. Thanks for the help though!
