Is not working at all...i cant even record my own voice but troubleshoot says that there is no prob. by the way, i've just formatted my laptop


Assuming you ave reinstalled Windows correctly follow these instructions.

Using 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 and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


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.

Ok i plugged it in and i can hear them but they cant hear me


I think you are having an issue with your microphone from what I read on your question. This is usually rectified by going into your sound mixer. Follow the following steps:
1. Double click the speaker icon next to the time on your taskbar.
2. The mixer panel opens, click OPTIONS then Properties.
3. On the properties dialog box click the RECORDING button and make sure that you have a tick in the box beside microphone.
4. Click Ok.
5. The mixer panel reverts to the recording mixer. Look for the microphone Slider and make sure that the SELECT checkbox below it is selected and adjust volume and test. If its still low and you have it turned up all the way you can activate a boost by clicking OPTIONS > ADVANCED. An advanced button will apear below your Microphone volume control slider, click it and activate the 20db boost and re adjust your microphone volume.

Lastly ensure that you have the microphone plugged into the right hole, it’s usually colour coded a pinky/redish colour.

The person I am speaking with does not hear me (He is deaf).
The microphone function does not appear to be working. I have adjusted the volume and that's not the problem (You must speak as well).
I have plugged both jacks (microphone and speaker) into my PC hard drive and am using my PC to talk on Skype (You cant plug even a single jack in the hard drive).
Problem solved!

The microphone on my ds lite is not working......i have read somewhere you can change the mic volume level.......but cant seem to find a setting to do so?


What game are you playing? On some games if it has the option of using the microphone you may be able to adjust the settings in t he game but when the game is removed they go back to default. Other than that I haven't seen anything that really talks about a microphone level setting.
