You may find that in some of the cases, even if the microphone should be recognized by the operating system, there may be a need to download and install a driver for the microphone. Please make sure the microphone is plugged into the correct port and powered on. If it does not detect the microphone, try checking your operating system for automatic drivers. You will need to download a few drivers before connecting the microphone to a personal computer.
In the default installation of Windows XP, a driver should automatically be detected for most microphones. Please make sure you download and install the appropriate drivers from the Microsoft website (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929392).
In Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, use the driver features that are available through the Control Panel. Select “Add a control panel widget. » Select “Network and Internet”» Select “Choose a device”» Double click on the device you want to configure.» Click on “Change device settings”» Select “Change advanced device settings”» Click on “Let me pick a driver”» Click on “Download and install driver”
Load the USB driver for the microphone. If a driver was already installed, it would have already been detected and Windows would have notified you when it finished installing. If not, select the tab that corresponds to the Operating System you are using (for example, Windows 8.1 - Devices/Motherboard (or what ever you have installed). Open the Microsoft Help menu (usually F1) and select "Dism/Uninstall a device" or select the microphone in the device manager within Windows. d2c66b5586
