My name is Angus and thanks for attending to this post. Lately, I've wante to chat with friends online and record some music so i decided to buy a mic. I ended up buying the Logitech Clearchat. I plugged the headset correctly into the corresponding ports on my Sound Card, CREATIVE SB Audigy (Very old, yes I know but better than nothing ) I was able to hear the sound in the heaset but I was unable to record sound. When I ran sound recorder under accessories no sound was detected. I was sure the mic was on. After failing to record sound I started messing with the settings in the sound and audio properties. I made sure i selected microphone and that the volume was max. Since that didnt work I even tried switching to Line-In and even to the extent of using my onboard sound ports insead of my soundcard but no luck. So i decided to borrow a friends mic and that also didnt work. However whenever i plugged this stand-alone mic into the light blue port, it made a little "boom" sound from my speakers but still no luck recording sound after that. I tried messing with the SB Audigy Settings the same way i did with the Windows XP settings but stil no luck. I am totally out of ideas and havetried all the possible combinations regarding settings. I am really looking forward to your help and I understand that you are using your own personal time to help. I really appreciate it and thanks in advance.
