    This is what I am looking at. Does anyone have any experience with this software?


    Do you see on the right. Things with nothing plugged into them are faded. As you can see. The microphone is plugged into the back panel. It shows up. If I remove it and plug it into the front panel that shows up. However, my computer doesn't seem to recognise the microphone. Flicking through the 3 tabbed options, none seem to provide any options for standard 'Mic In'.

    Am I doing something wrong? How do I get my computer to recognise the microphone?

    Edit: If I right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right tray and select recording devices. I have one listed. "Line In, Realtek High Definition Audio - Not plugged in"



    I have been stuck on this for 2 weeks. I tried to disable the Line In. It disappeared. I clicked Show Disabled in the menu. The Microphone was disabled... enabled it and poof. Job done. Thanks for reading. Sorry for wasting your time :)
