Shift+F12 will start or stop recording an MNG fine, which is basically an animated PNG, and as such, has no audio. You can find the recorded MNG file in the snap/ folder, being the driver you're currently running.
To record an AVI, you must use -aviwrite (there should be an equivalant option in MAMEUI), but be warned, this will create a huge file as the AVI is uncompressed. Having your HD formatted using FAT32 will be unhelpful, due to FAT32's file size limit of 2GB. NTFS is the better option here. After recording, you can use a video editor or converter, such as avidemux or Super, to convert the AVI to a compressed format.
