Question about Labtec Verse 333 Consumer Microphone

2 Answers

Install? I just bought the mic, and I can't get it to work. It doesn't record any sound. I've tested it using the newest version of AIM. In fact, I don't think my computer even detects it as hardware. I'm using Windows XP, and I know for sure that I have plugged the mic into the microphone input jack.

    Hi, I have the same problem, taken all the above steps and it hasnt worked.
    In the sound recording panel in the Sounds and Audio devices Properties I can click the volume button, but the advanced button is greyed out. Would this give a clue to the problem at all?

You wouldn't normally expect the computer to detect a microphone plugged into the soundcard as new hardware - so don't get too excited about that particular symptom. Suggest you try a different microphone with the computer, and try the microphone with a different computer - preferably one which is working happily with a microphone of its own. This will help identify whether the problem lies with the microphone or the computer. If the computer looks like the problem, have a look in Control Panel under Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Audio tab, there's a Sound Recording panel, and pressing the Volume button on that gives you access to some controls for the microphone input. Make sure the checkbox for the microphone is ticked, then have a play with the fader. If you're sure the microphone is the problem, then I suggest you take it back and complain. A.

    Afterthought: Just double check that this isn't one of those annoying microphones that needs you to keep putting batteries into it.

    (Condenser mics need power to work. Most of the ones designed for use with computers take their power as a phantom feed from the soundcard, but microphones designed to be compatible with older tape recorders etc have a small battery - which invariably goes flat when you forget to switch the microphone off)

Logitech h250 mic not working

I've checked the mic settings, and adjusted them fully up. When I test them as hardware, they work, when I play a game, they don't work. Very frustrating.

Hello There, I just bought the Rode NT1-A, and I am trying to record in protools, but i'm not getting any levels whatsoever. I'm plugged in to an MBOX, in the XLR, I have Phantom Power turned on,...

It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

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.
