1. Does one of your friends or family have a computer with a cd drive? And a USB jump drive? Have them move the files from the cd to the USB stick and insert the USB stick into the computer and install from there.
2. Buy an external cd drive from Best Buy or Frys.

SOURCE: tips on Using the Samson C01U with Cakewalk Pro Audio 9

Try this:
Control Panel > Sound Audio Device > go to Voice Tab > check your drop down list for Voice Recording and make sure you put on Samson C01U then test your hardware and see you get any pick up. I had to research on what to do.

Now my problem is why the mic is only picking up on the left side of the ear instead of the right. =/

SOURCE: C01u PROBLEM PLS HELP ?!

That's the way it's supposed to work. It's a mono microphone, so there's only one signal to record.

Set up your recording software so that it only records the Left channel. It describes how to do this on the Samson FAQ page and in the Owner's Manual:

"In your digital audio workstation (DAW), create a mono audio track, and set it to the Left channel of the C01U (the Right channel should be ignored). Arm the track for recording, and adjust the input gain by using the software control in your computer's operating system"

Don't try to alter the pan so both sides are the same; that will just screw up the levels and noise.

Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

My macbook air disk drive doesn't take any cds in


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

For simple but in-depth troubleshooting, I suggest this link for you to review in regards to working toward resolving the Macbook Air SuperDrive CD /DVD issues.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the guide provided above does not resolve the problem, then the issue here is that your USB Superdrive (unless you are using a different non-Apple 3rd party CD/DVD drive) is experiencing a mechanical failure.

This Apple external USB CD/DVD SuperDrive is fairly straight-forward in its use.

Now if the issue you were having had something to do with only a DVD or CD constantly ejecting automatically after you placed such a disk in the drive, that would be different.

In this case however, if the guide above does not help and you are experiencing the SuperDrive working intermittently, my advice, is to take your Macbook Air with the external SuperDrive in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or Apple Authorized service provider for a free diagnostics to determine the root cause of the SuperDrive failing intermittently.

Feel free to reply back if you have any questions regarding the information I have provided you.

Regards,

1. Try the microphone on another USB port and check.
2. If not OK, try the microphone on another computer and check.
3. If OK on another computer, re-install it or recover the O.S. from a backup.
4. If on another computer the same problem exists, the microphone could have a internal control defect.
