There shouldn't be more to do than just simply connect the usb connector to a free usb port on your computer.

if this does not get the expected result your problem may be with
a. a faulty equipment (did it ever worked, how old is it?, did your purchase it new?)
b. (most likely) configuration, what software are you trying to use? what operating system?

post back with more details and I will try to help!

My mic isnt working but i can hear out of my headset

If you are running Vista, make sure that you set your mic as the default. Then check on vent settings and make sure that your output setting are set for your head set. You can then test your headset inside of the settings tab.

I would think that your mic part is shot or you need to adjust the volume of your mic. Go to Start---->Control Panel---->Sounds And Devices---->Volume----->Advanced now adjust your input mic levels a little lower.
