I have written a guide on How to convert Records and Tapes to CD. I have found that when someone asks me a question like yours here is what I tell them. Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Download the program Audacity. It is a completely free program. It works great for many audio applications. It does not have spware or adware or anything like that attached to it. In fact many studios use this program. Click on the Download Audacity 1.2.6 link to download the program. Install the program and open the main window. In the middle of the window you will see a field that is labeled Microphone. If the field is not set to Microphone then change it by clicking on the drop down menu. There are two slider controls to the left and right of the small microphone icon. Click on the sliders and set them at about 1/2. These 2 controls are your microphone input level and your Audacity main volume control. Now simply click on the round red record button. Talk into your microphone. If your mic is recording you should see recorded sound waves in the middle of the window. Click on the square stop button and then click on the rewind button. Next click on the green play button. Make sure your computer speakers are turned up. If this doesn't work your sound card may not have recording capabilities or you may have your mic plugged into the wrong connection on your tower. You can move the mic to a different connection and try recording again. Just don't plug into your speaker connection this could damage the microphone. You can check to see if your sound card has recording capabilities by competing the following On your desktop click on start - control panel - sound, speech, and audio devices then click on sound and audio devices. When the small Sound and Audio Device Window opens, click on the audio tab. Under the title sound recording, you should have a sound card listed in that field. For example my card is a SoundMaxDigital Audio. The field is right next to the small microphone icon. If there is no card listed you can buy a cheap one online or even at Wal - Mart. They are very easy to install. You just find an empty slot on *********** board and your computer should recognize the card.

Ricketfish srs wow - mic is not working


  • Press the PWR button on the wireless receiver to turn the unit on. The headset has a sleep/standby mode feature to preserve battery life. The unit goes into sleep mode if there's no input for 3 minutes.
  • Twist the tip of the microphone so the sound holes face your mouth.
  • Position the microphone several inches away from your mouth so it does not overload when you speak. Try to balance the microphone position and the volume setting for optimum voice level.
  • Press the ALL MUTE button (the Rocketfish logo) on the left side of the headset once to make sure that the All Mute function is not activated. The LED on the wireless receiver will light red when All Mute is activated.
  • Make sure that the volume on the wireless receiver is not turned down or muted. The LED on the wireless receiver will light orange when Mute is activated.
  • Rotate the CHAT VOLUME dial on the wireless receiver to control the chat volume.
  • Make sure the USB cable is connected to both the wireless transmitter and your device.
  • Make sure that all connections are correct and secure. Sometimes a cable may appear to be connected but it may not be pressed in all the way.
  • Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries are installed correctly. See Question 19.
  • Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries do not need replacing.
  • Make sure that the microphone isn't plugged into the Line In port (or vice versa).
  • Make sure the headphone jack is pushed all the way into the port.
  • If you're using an Xbox 360
    • Make sure the wireless receiver is connected to the Xbox 360 controller using the supplied chat cable. On the wireless receiver, press firmly, so no part of the silver jack is showing. This tight connection helps to make sure the cable does not fall out during gaming.
    • Try a different Xbox controller.
    • Try recording a message to a friend by selecting My Friends, Send a Message, then Add Voice. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.
  • Try testing the microphone by connecting the headset to a smart phone and make a test call or record a memo. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.

If these steps don't work, then I would advise seeking replacement.

I have a dynex dest mic and it is not working


See if your computer is setup correctly to use it. go to my computer ---control panel ---sound.
Also check the volume control and make sure the mic is'nt muted. If this is a USB mic drivers
may need to be installed for it. Check the device manager and see if there is any problems
under my computer ---- view system information ---- Hardware -- device manager. If this is an
analog mic make sure its plugged into the soundcard correctly. If using front plugs on the computer
make sure the soundcard is set to use front mic.

Hi. Try to check the settings of your skype account especially for the microphone. You may try using other microphones also just to check if the port is working or the mic that you are currently using is working also.

I am getting the voice from other end & my voice is not going


Mic issues can be tricky. Knowing what operating system you are using would help diagnose the issue.

First the simple things. Make sure your mic is plugged into the correct jack. It should be red. Second, you need to open your sound mixer and make sure your mic is not muted or the volume turned all the way down. Either of these will cause you not to be heard.

You can also open the sound settings in your control panel, it is the icon that looks like a speaker if you are using Vista/7. Under the recording tab, make sure you see your mic/headphones/etc (what ever you are using as a mic) in the list. Make sure it has a green check mark on it indicating it is the default device. You can then double click it and select the levels tab to ensure your volume is not all the way down on the mic. You can also click on the listen tab. Place a check in the listen to this device box and click apply. You should now be able to hear your own voice as you speak into the mic over your speakers. It gives you a way to troubleshoot the mic functions. Once you can hear your voice, remove the check and click apply again to return to normal.

Make sure you can hear your voice without Google Talk. It most likely is not the application causing your problem. If, however, your mic works on everything but Google Talk, then we need to do more troubleshooting. Let me know if this resolves your issue.

Mic Echoes


Echo is caused by a number of variables. Are you in a large room with mic extended away from you? Mic too far away will create echo. Also try turning down the gain for the mic

First, try pluging in an exteral mic to check the mic itself is not broke. Next Go to the device manager to check for driver problems (control panel, system, Hardware look for yellow ?'s) Check control panel, Sounds and Audio, audio, sound recording, volume. There are just too many ways to mess with the sound settings, and they often seem to just mute themselves!
Good luck

For Vista 32 bit. Go to the driver manager. De-instal/delete the driver in the Sound, Video and Game section. In my case it was RealTek High Def Audio ver 6.0.1.5371. (Select Delete the driver files.) Reboot. Vista will reinstall a driver. In my case it was Microsoft High Def audio ver 6.0.6000.16386. I had the mic plugged in when I rebooted to load the new driver. The Cyber Acoustics ML-1060 now works fine. Hope this helps.
