Troubleshooting
If your microphone isn’t working, try these troubleshooting steps.
PC
• Make sure that the microphone is plugged into a USB port. Try unplugging and
plugging it in.
• Verify that the microphone volume and playback volume settings are not muted in the
operating system and that the volume level for these devices is set at least halfway up.
• Make sure that the software you are using has USB Audio Device selected as the
recording device.
• Make sure that the device is listed in the Device Manager. Click Start, Settings,
Control Panel, System, then click the Device Manager tab (the Hardware tab in
Device Manager for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows ME). Click View, then
click Devices by type. Expand the entries under Sound and Video and game
controllers. USB Composite Device should be listed. If not, unplug and replug the
microphone into the USB port, then restart the computer.
• There is a chance that your computer may lock up when you plug in the device. If this
occurs, contact your computer manufacturer for help.
• If you have problems with the quality of your sound recordings, then change the
recording to 16-bit quality in Sound Recorder by clicking File, Properties, Convert
Now. Under Name, click CD Quality.
Macintosh
• Make sure that only one USB microphone is plugged into a USB port.
