Hey guys, I got a mic -- C-Media USB Headphone Set. Well actually that's the usb plugin. I got a mic that plugs into it. It's a mic only though, no headphones attached to it. So I plug the mic in, turn the thing on and the hardware automatically installs (I don't have any control over that as far as I know =/).. It shows nothing about this on my Realtek soundcard. So I check the volume control, the mixer devices include an extra device now: C-Media USB Headphone Set. This is probably expected, however, there is also Playback AND Recording. And under Recording there is only the Capture volume control, not Microphone or Line-in or anything, only Capture. Nothing is muted nor is anything on low volume setting. I cannot hear any sound on the computer or even hear myself (on the computer when talking into the mic) when the usb is turned on (theres a switch to turn it on). As soon as I turn it off, the computers sound immediatly works. When I record me talking into the mic, I see the lines moving proving that the mic does work. After turning the mic off I can play this back and I hear myself just fine. I have another mic, but it doesn't require a usb. This works just fine (other than that it's really bad quality mic, and so there isn't much of a volume boost when I hear myself). I also have another thing that a my mic can plug into, it plugs in like my other microphone plugs in, and I can plug my mic into that. When I plug this in though, Realtek does notice it, and I can change some settings, but it doesn't work, like sound works and everything but the mic doesn't work at all. Any suggestions guys? It'd be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
