Optio WGII Movie Sound

Does anyone know if its possible to record movies and turn the built in microphone off so no sound is recorded? I have tried playing with all of the menu items in the Record Mode under "Sound" but none will turn the audio recorder off.

I don't think there's such an option. You'll have to modify the videos on your computer.

Thanks. I use windows movie maker and haven't found a way to eliminate the sound either. Best I can do is put music or voice over it but the background sound recorded by the camera can still be heard.
