Question about Microphones
Sound recording cannot be done.i can hear others but they do not hear me
To locate the source of your problem (with the information available):
Try your mic on a different recording device. Something simple like a tape recorder.
Try a known working mic on your system.
If these tests point to the mic, replace it. If they point to your recording device/system/whatever, more details will be necessary to effectively troubleshoot your problem.
Hope this helps,
