I purchased a R31S Samson Microphone and it cant be detected when i plug it in to my computer microphone jack. What is it to do?


A dynamic mic connected to the your computer's mic jack is an analog connection. So your computer won't give a notification that there's a mic connected. However, you can view input levels through the default windows mixer of your sound card or any program or application installed on your computer that has the capability. Had it been connected through usb or firewire, it would be digital and you wold be notified that the device had been detected via device drivers etc.
Hope this helps

ATR3350 Microphone: Battery in. Plugged into laptop. Recorded video. ATR3350 Mic is ignored. Audio is still recorded from my Logitech Webcam software. How does this thing work?


You need to tell your computer which microphone / sound source to use.
In he absence of other instructions it is defaulting to the built in microphone.
Normally your sound-card software should detect a new device plugged in and ask you to confirm it. However if it is not doing so you may need to change the audio settings.
How to correct this will vary slightly depending on which operating system you are using.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES



Click VOICE


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.


NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.


That should be it but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.

Microphone not working. running windows vista. I've looked everywhere online and all the settings I keep seeing people say to change don't show up on my computer. Also says all the drivers are up to date.


Vista always has sound card problem.
I had too because with my headset (microphone) It works through your sound card
but it works well now after I installed it as below

When I plug in my Logitech USB Desktop Microphone into a usb port on my computer it does not detect the new software, how do I fix this so I can install it?


Sometimes you have to install the drivers and software before you plug the microphone in and sometimes it is the other way around.

I have connected the samson mic to my computer. input not detecte


A condenser mic. requires "phantom power" usually supplied by a mixing desk. Without this, there will be no output signal from the mic.
