Question about Shure SM58 Professional Microphone
You have to press the microphone cable with your hand to get the sound connection. How can I get it where it will tightly connect (cable to microphone)???
If your cable has no spring pin, it is likely not to stay connected. If you notice on your mic cable, there is a hole as follows.
The arrow is where the whole is on the outside of the mic. This is where the pin on the cable clicks firmly into place. If your cable doesn't have a small pin, then it is time to find a new cable.

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.
2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.
3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.
>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<
NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.
4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.
5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.
>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<
Adjusting recording quality
The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.
1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).
2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.
3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.
4 Click OK.
Your new settings take effect the next time you record.
