Hey guys, I have this cheap iBall M81 Dynamic microphone, which is pretty good for the price it paid for it, just 400 bucks. I am facing some issues now, not with the mic but with the laptop i guess. I had a Dell Latitude D620 and the mic used to work fine on it to record tracks etc without any issues. I cant use the same mic on my new laptop Dell Latitude E6420 for some reason..It just doesn't record, tried it with various recording softwares, tried out different settings under sound properties, Both the laptops have Win XP. Some more info that may be useful E6420 has IDT Audio Drivers, everything else works fine, such as the speakers, sound, inbuilt mic records like a champ, but the iBall. D620 had 2 separate sockets - 1 for headphones and 1 for Line in, I used to hook up the mic to the Line in. E6420 just has one port, which is for both the headphones and Line In at the same time (I guess the 3.5mm jack the mic has isn't making a good connection), or I may be wrong. Any help is highly appreciated please !!!!!!!!!!!
