    I purchased an ibook g4 off ebay a few weeks ago and i recently just found out it came with a built in microphone i have no idea on how to make it work....
    I went into iMovie because there is a voice record option but it comes up with nothing ive tried searching the help thing on my mac but still cant find anything on the microphone.
    Thanks in advance(y) :)

    Most mac microphones are really bad, I wouldn't suggest using them. Although I try to use them alot, My friends say on the other line, you hear either a buzzing noise, or a high pitch screech.
