cannot record.

I am anewbie when it comes to audio recording.

I just received a microphone on eBay, iy has a insgle lead with the pink jack plug at the end.

I plugged it into the pink socket on the back of my PC.

I opened sound recorder and clicked joy, didn't record anything.

Went into audio in the control panel, microphoe was disabled, clcked enable and tried again...still no joy.

And this is when I turned to you.

Any suggestions please?

I have an working sound device, all my sounds play fine.

I am running Win XP SP3

Thank you

Check to see if mic is muted or the volume was reduced in windows volume control panel. It may be that you have a faulty mic. Are you able to try it on another computer to eliminate that?
