Rather than trying to fix the current mic, I decided to try to use a SHURE SM57 microphone that I've had for a while, but never used. This mic plugs into my computer using the sound card, not by USB.
When I plug the mic in, nothing pops up, and there is no indication that it is detected. I use CakeWalk Guitar tracks to record my songs, and when I go to the record device selection, I can't get the SHURE mic to be listed.
There is nothing in the box it came in that I have to install, and the manual doesn't help me one bit. Anyone have any clue what I should do?
Thanks in advance. And please respond ASAP, since I was planning on recording a tribute song to 9/11 before it came around.
