LogicTech USB Mic not working even though windows says it is

My microphone isn't working. I've Went to see if it was muted in a lot of diferent places, It wasn't muted at all. I Looked in Device Manager to see if there was a hardware conflict, and there wasn't one. I double-clicked on 'sound, video and game controllers, under it was 'USB Audio Device' I double clicked on it. It said it was working and it was enabled. I went to sound and Audio Devices in the Control Panel and I Looked at it and it said it 'Worked'. I tested it and it could hear me speaking into the mic and it could sence playback from the speakers. I Put it into another UBS jack and it still wouldn't work. I couldn't hear anything.

    I have the exact Logitech mic and the driver thats being installed is AK5370. The voice meter from the meter bar is barely showing and when I do speak the meter bar just shot-up. So It's the meter bar is barely showing or maxing-out. I dont think windows is installing the right driver. How can I tell that windows is actually going out and picking-up the right driver?

    Same Problem, have you checked your secondary audio installation? Such as Creative Labs sound card. You think there could be a conflict with that sound system with your computers mother's board built in sound card?

    I plug in the microphone and it works - I can speak into it and hear it through the speakers. Then when I execute Skype or Control Panel:Speech or Control Panel:Sound, the microphone stops working. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Samson g track windows 7


It works fine in Windows 7 except that there's a bug in Windows 7 that adds lots of noise to the mic. It's easy to work around, though: Go into Recording devices, Properties button, Levels tab, right click on the level number so that it shows in decibels, and then adjust the level to 0 dB. It's supposed to be at 0 dB but Windows 7 defaults it to 30 dB for no reason. This isn't a problem on Windows XP.

Hi, I recently reformatted my hard drive and installed Windows 7. Before that, I had windows vista and my mic worked fine. Now, windows 7 picks up the mic and says it's enabled and it's not muted,...


Check the web-site of the manufacturer of the computer (and the motherboard) to see if they have updated device-drivers for Windows 7.

Are you sure that you've plugged the microphone into the 'pink' ("microphone-in") socket?

Open the "sound-mixer" application, and check that the "microphone-in" is not muted,
and that the slider is pushed to the maximum level.

Try a different microphone.

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.

My mic seems to pick up internal noise even when muted


Hi, You can check you the connectios or the mic. remember that the mic is too sensitive, you can adjust it with the nobb on the mic by putting it on o -dB and reduce the highs on your mixer or EQ to reduce hiss sound.

But fisr check the connection properly to see if when muted, is muted properly.

Take care.

Cannot get microphone to work while connected to computer.


I found this on the Turtle Beach website: ________________________________________
Let's make absolutely sure that the microphone in your headset is working correctly. If the mic is working, a replacement talkback cable should fix it. If not, then please send in your name, shipping address, the name of the store where you purchased your X1 and the date (month/day/year) of purchase.
OK, here's how to test the X1 using the Microphone input on your PC:
1) Take the pink plug from the X1 and plug it into the pink jack (Microphone input) on your PC's soundcard.
2) Take the green plug from the X1 and plug it into the green jack (Front L/R Out or Line Out) on your PC's soundcard.
3) Take the USB plug from the X1 and insert it into a USB port on the PC (not a USB hub, please).
4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback. In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost. Make sure the Microphone is not muted (Mute switch is not enabled).
5) Adjust the volume for the Microphone to about half-way up.
6) Adjust the overall playback volume to about half-way up.
7) Put on the headset. Make sure the Mute switch on the X1 amp box is not set to Mute (the LED should be green).
Now speak into the microphone. Do you hear your voice in the headphones? If so, the mic works and your X1 headphones should be OK. If you still cannot get the X1 mic to work over Xbox Live, then you need to take a closer look at Dashboard settings and other connections, or check the integrity of your X1-Xbox Controller Cable.

******************************
In order to enable the chat make sure that the Mute button in the Off position. If it is on the ON position the Mic will not work.
Red = Muted Green = UN-Muted
_________________________________________________________________
If you're having trouble adjusting the Mic in Windows:
WINDOWS XP:
For Windows XP, there's a nice video on YouTube that takes you through all the steps of setting up your microphone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vissxo8furo


WINDOWS VISTA:
Please follow these instructions to configure your microphone within Windows Vista:
1. Left-click on the Start button. The Start Menu will appear.
2. Left-click on Control Panel. The Control Panel will open.
3. Left-click on the Hardware and Sound option. The Hardware and Sound window will open.
4. Left-click on the Sound option. The Sound window will open.
5. Left-click on Recording from the three tabs at the top of the Sound window. While in the Recording tab of the Sound window, you will see all options available for recording - Microphone should be one of them. (If you don’t see an option for Microphone, ensure your microphone is plugged into your computer using the jacks commonly located on either the front or back of the machine.)
6. Left-click on the Microphone option to highlight it. This will enable the Properties button toward the bottom-right of the window. Left-click on the Properties button.
7. You should see the Properties for your recording (input) devices. One of these should be Microphone.
8. Left-click on the Levels tab (or similar). Adjust the Level (Volume) and Mic Boost controls to at least half-way up. If your Mic Boost control is a simple check box, please make sure it is checked (Enabled). You should hear your microphone in your headset or speakers.
Once the levels are adjusted to your satisfaction, left-click OK and OK to save your settings. You can then close the Control Panel.
Your microphone should now be ready!

How to hear my voice through my usb microphone?


by default the playback of your voice is muted. next to your clock theres the sound speaker icon click on it, you should see microphone somewhere there, if you dont press settings from the toolbar and then properties

then on the playback make sure there is a X on microphone.

then click ok, now check is the microphone muted? unmute it and speak to the microphone you should hear your own voice played back instantly from the speakers.

I had this problem too. My built in mic wasnt working, but i went to the list of programs (Classic view of the start menu) and under the program folder TOSHIBA > Speech System it'll have a choice "Configure Microphone." After I went through that, it worked fine. Make sure you restart your webcam software though after you've done that if you had it open like me. Hope this works!
