I bought a microphone, and plugged it into my Microphone input, but nothing worked.. I tried everything. Although, my microphone does work on my old windows laptop.
I then took my laptop to the apple store and saw a genius. He plugged his iPhone into the microphone port and it could record music fine from the iPhone. So.. no problems with the port.
I then bought a headset with a microphone on it, which uses the line-in and headphone ports and still nothing works. Although this headset works flawlessly on my old windows laptop again.
Someone please help. I have checked all settings, tried to record in Audacity and Garageband. I've made sure everything is on and working.. There's nothing wrong with the port either.

There's an on and off thing on the wire, along with volume. But I don't think thats powered at all.
Does it matter? I mean it works fine on my windows PC so it works without power.

I thought as a general rule, normal microphones do not work on the Mac as it's a Line-in rather than a Mic connection. You'll most likely need a pre amp of some sort to convert from Mic to Line.
Not too sure where to look, but I'm sure i've seen some USB based solutions here.
