Mic and headset not recognized

Hello, i have an Ideazon gh-100 mic/ headset. im using it for ventrillo but i cannot get it to work. i have two ports in the front of my comp (one pink and one green) and ive plugged the pink to pink and green to green. ive set the pink to mic in and the green to line out. ive gone to my sound and voice and to the voice tab to test it and the recording and playback tabs do not list my mic. it only lists Realtek HD Audio which is my audio manager. this is really aggravating. i do not know if it came with software; i dont believe so. i dont know if i need a driver either since ive checked the site and i cannot even find faqs or help for this mic on the website. any help would be appreciated extremely. thanks

link to the mic:

    I am using a Lenovo PC with Realtek HD Audio and when I use the GE headset connected to the front or back PC plugs, doesn't matter, I get horrible stereo echo when speaking with a customer. If I turn down the mic volume, the echo goes away, but the customer then can not hear me.

You haven't mentioned it that i can see but when you have the green plug into the green can you hear sound ?... if so look for the speaker icon on the lower right of your screen. open that to volume control.... look at the mic setting... is the mute box marked ? if so uncheck it and try the mic again

When I plug in my Audio 625 Plantronics to my usb port it shows an error - Device not recognized, please help..

If you are using a Mac computer your Plantronics .Audio headset will not work The microphone plug on the .Audio analog headsets is not compatible with a Mac. It will physically fit into the Mic input jack on a Mac; however, it will not function. Basically, the digital sound card does not recognize the analog signal coming in from the headset.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4

Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help.

A common fix seems to be to have either a USB headset with a mic plugged in, or something plugged into the analog mic jack. It seems they want to force you to use a mic.

Best Buy: Plantronics Problem

James, plug the phone cord that comes out of the back of the CS55 base into the handset port of the Cisco phone, not the headset port.  Then plug the coily cord from the cisco receiver into the front of the CS55.  Don't use the "Headset" button on your Cisco phone, just lift the receiver off.
