Re: my mic is detected... sort of
All you have to do is right click on the speaker icon which is next to the soundmax icon in the taskbar and select the" ADJUST AUDIO PROPERTIES"
Now select the voice tab and in that under the VOIC3E RECORDING click on vloume and make sure the microphone volume is full now close it and click on Test Hardware.

TEST SPEAKERS Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel Select "Playback Devices" The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard
SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC Click "Recording" tab. To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties" In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK' Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later) Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
It could be as simple as needing to reinstall your sound drivers.
Also try going to control panel,sound, click on sound be sure your device is listed.
Go to the propeties tab find levels scroll down to the bottom to microphone.Turn it up.
Also make sure your in the right input on your motherboard or back of the pc.mic is usually coded as pink.
in skype go to tools>options>audio setting make sue the microphone is logitech and the green bars should start moving as you talk. if no logitech appears or the mic is not producing sound. call logitech for warranty info. if the mic is producing sound below is "make a free skype test call" to see if the program is transmitting.
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.
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
