Thanks for your help re: the microphone. I plugged it in, but no volume. Where do you adjust the volume control for the microphone? Is it on the desktop somewhere? Thanks again for your quick reply, Annika
The setting of Microphone Volume depends on whic is your hardware and which Operating system you are using. Also in which software you are trying to use.
I am describing here a general way how to addjust microphone volume

You can use it with a portable stereo that has a microphone input socket - just plug it in. You may need to adjust a mic volume control - this will vary from one system to another.
With a computer just plug it onto the microphone input socket (usually colour coded red or pink)
You will also need to enable it in 'control panel' - see below.
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
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
In Sounds & Audio Devices
Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure
that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list
of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.
Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't
checked before closing the window.
Now click the VOLUME button in the
SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording
(as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).
NOTE if your microphone
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. Same
applies for Internal mic.
That should be it.
To adjust audio volume generally.
Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume
as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust
slider to suit.
You might put a check mark in the box
to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make
adjustments in the future.
