Question about Rosetta Stone Chinese Mandarin Level I & II Set Personal (chilspe)
I set up the headset in the setup application (speak "1,2,3,4,5") and it works perfectly. Then when I go to my lesson, I can hear but the system does not know I am talking. Like it's muted.
I found the answer. Rosetta Stone has a problem detecting the mics if the speaker input is not in someway connected to the mic. I'm not exactly sure how it works, but I don't care and neither should you.
Follow these steps each time you want to use it and you should be fine.
*I'm on Vista, but this should work for every one.
1. Open Control Panel
2. Open Hardware and Sound
4.Set Line 1 as your Default Speaker
5. Refresh the Mic list
*All of your mics should now show up.
6. In Rosetta Stone, apply the mic you want and finish the setup.
7.Start whatever language you're using and switch back to the Sound menu.
8.Set whatever speaker you want to use as default.
*Rosetta Stone will continue to work fine until you close it, switch Users, or remove the mic.
In short you have to set the default speaker to LINE 1 to get the mics to appear. Then when you apply the settings switch the default speaker back.

I had this same problem with my Windows 7 and Rosetta Stone 4. I discovered the problem may be solely with Windows as there is now a provision to improve VOIP that interferes with RS. I went to the Control Panel and in Sound clicked on the Communications tab and clicked on "Do nothing" When Windows detects Communication activity. The mic is now working perfectly.
