Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I dont seem to hear any sound from my microphone although I did connect it into the computer. What may I have done wrong?
Go to your computer start menu. Then to control panel, then system sound /audio devices. Locate the master audio control. There should be a slider for Mic. Adjust this volume until you hear your voice. Depending on your computer built in soundcard the volume/quality will vary. You might consider a external soundcard.

Look for the sound card on the back of the computer. This will have a 15-pin connector and several colored jacks.
Locate the microphone jack. Although some manufacturers will stray from the norm, the microphone jack is typically colored red or pink and/or will probably have a picture of a microphone.
Connect the microphone into the jack.
Click "Start," then click "Control Panel," then click "Hardware and Sound," then click "Manage Audio Devices" under the "Sound" category. This opens the "Sound" window.
Click the "Recording" tab. Here you will see a picture of a microphone. To the right of the picture should be a sound bar.
Test the microphone by speaking into it. If the sound bar lights up, then the microphone is plugged in correctly and ready to use. If the sound bar remains gray, then there is no signal. Try another jack on your sound card and repeat the steps to test your microphone. If you still can't get the microphone to work review your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer's technical support.
