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
3.Open 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.

Problem: Rosetta Stone msg: 1117 error occurred in the speech component operating system: Mac OSX Hi, I Have Rosseta Stone installed on my macbook pro (osx) and have/used it over a week now....


Try my steps:-
1.If you know removing installed programs from MAC, then please remove this application named-Rosetta Stone.
2. Now, remove all the cables & wires if your hardware audio device & turn off your computer.
3. Reconnect all the cables & wires & start your computer.
4. This time, reinstall the audio driver.

If this doesn't work, then you may try these ones:-
METHOD 1: Perform Step 1 to 3 again & install a different audio driver instead of Rosetta Stone.

METHOD 2: (This is only if METHOD 1 is also not working) Try your mic in any other MAC by installing Rosetta Stone in that system.

Note: You may search for a different audio driver at http://www.download.cnet.com/. Here search in mac column.
For any more support or any questions in future, you are the most welcome to contact me at abmakm@yahoo.com.

I solved by going to Control Panel, Sound, Recording, then click on your mic and click on Configure, and then Set up microphone... Thats probably going to fix your problem... That easy... xD

Rosetta Stone Microphone Not Found


This worked for me:

1) Right click on the Rosetta Stone icon in the Start menu
2) Click the "Compatibility" tab
3) Set it to run in compatibility mode with Windows Vista SP2 (mine was defaulted to run in XP compatibility mode, which seemed to be the problem)
4) Start the program again, if you are lucky all mics will now show up

When I plug the headphone/microphone jack into a USB port I can get it to work on my PC using Windows XP, but Rosetta Stone won't recognize it. Is there a driver or some other software needed?

Mac computer doesn't hear voice when using rosetta stone


I have windows, so I don't know if this will help, but I found that you have to make sure that the recording device is named "Microphone HS" or something with the word "microphone" in it. For some reason, rosetta stone does not recognize recording devices unless they have the word "microphone" somewhere in their name.... This is true for windows, I don't know if this is true in Mac. At least this may point you in the right direction. :)

Microphone will not pass setup


I have finally found a solution! I found it by chance on the rosetta stone troubleshooting page. I have nod 3 antivirus + firewall and in the firewall settings the rosetta stone application was blocked (it was denied internet access). I just deleted it from the list and the next time rosetta stone asked for internet access I clicked yes. Now rosetta stone detects both my dynamic microphone and my usb headset and it works fine. Hope this works for everybody.

Rosetta stone won't recognize my logitech headset


Make sure that your device is set as your default device by making sure that there is a green check mark next to the device. If not, right click and select "set as default device" (or something like that... I have vista and not win7)

If that does not work, right click on the headphones and go to "Properties" then go and under the "General" tab, change the name of the device to "Microphone HS" For some reason, Rosetta Stone does not recognize the headset unless it has the word "Microphone" in its name... Kinda stupid if you ask me. Hope that helps...
