View Full Version : Microphone Problems -.-

December 28th, 2009, 5:43 AM
First of all i want to disable the built in microphone and enable my plug in microphone.
However when i enabled the plug in microphone it wouldn't recognise any sound.. Is it broken or am i doing something wrong?
The sound levels are all turned up to full.
But I don't want the built in microphone as i need to move the plug in microphone around to different things (I record music).
Much appreciated if you can answer =3

I assume you're using Windows Vista or 7. Just go to the Sound Settings and set the plugin microphone to your "Default Device", I think that's what you do... XD

Did you check to see that the drivers were properly installed? Sometimes (in XP especially) the default Windows drivers for devices don't work too well and you need to go to the manufacturer's site and download/install the latest ones - which is a good practice in any case.
