I'm having same issue. In control panel audio section there isn't a way for it to see or recognize the mic I plugged into audio jack. I don't see a driver is available online for this mic and have no idea how to get the laptop to recognize the device.

I install audacity and can choose microsoft sound mapper and I think it did record from the mic (not internal mic on laptop). But that is only thing I've been able to do with this mic.

You need to tell your computer which microphone / sound source to use.
In he absence of other instructions it is defaulting to the built in microphone.
Normally your sound-card software should detect a new device plugged in and ask you to confirm it. However if it is not doing so you may need to change the audio settings.
How to correct this will vary slightly depending on which operating system you are using.

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


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.


NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) 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.


That should be it but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.

You may just need to manually select your mic. Go to this free video mail site. Click on the mic icon and then try the choices in the drop down list. Record and play back brief recordings until you can hear yourself. Once you know the mic that works select it in Skype or other software program. It is usually under Settings, Audio.

When ever i try to record a video on facebook it will record but it says audio is not being recorded...also when i try to record videos just on the web cam it freezes. any suggestions?


Make sure your webcam mic is set as the default mic on your computer - this is especially important if you have a laptop also with a built-in mic

Plug in the webcam
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.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
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

Restart computer

The freezing problem could be for a variety of reasons - internet connection - lack of memory etc.
Ensure you have Microsoft DirectX installed and its up to date
If you installed from a CD your Logitech software itself may need updating

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

You can also download and run this webcam diagnostic software - dont worry too much about the first alert - I always get that.
Reboot your webcam software by unplugging the cam for a couple of seconds before running the diagnostic utility

You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

No sound when connected on aim


Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.

Hey, webcam problems


e cause of a Web Cam's microphone to stop working can be either a hardware issue or a result from incorrect configurations. Recommendations:
Determine whether it is a hardware problem by testing the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
We also recommend using the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Additional Information:
Multimedia keyboards that have the ability to control your computer volume may have software that can interfere with your webcamera's sound. If you have a Multimedia keyboard with volume control, the keyboard's software may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows.
