View Full Version : My Mic wont work

just installed Viavoice millenium v7.0 went to start it up & when it came to test my Mic, no joy, I cant actually get it to register at all. I have a soundblaster live 5.1, original drivers only on Win ME, & yes, I did check that it was in the right jack...

And did you also check that it hasn't been 'muted' in Windows ? (man, the number of times I've seen that..!)

is it enabled in volume control? (playback & record)

Yep exactly what they said; double click audio properties.

Ok, I checked & guess what, the mic was muted, however unmuting didnt do jack ;-) thanks though, I had a good laugh at myself for a moment

just so you all know, the mic wont work still, I have tested the mic itself, karaoke sounds great <not> on my stereo, still nothing despite the unmuting on my PC

Have you noted the above advice from Tweak'e, to check both the play & record settings in the volume control.

I dont know about Viavoice, but in most recording & talk programs, it is best to 'mute' the mic in the play control (to avoid feedback from the pc speakers) & be sure to 'select' the mic in the record control.

Have you done this? Post back if you need more details of these settings.
