    Hi,
    I have recently purchased Apple macbook 13" 2 Ghz, 2GB laptop and I am

    using it in dual boot (MAC leopard and Windows XP) . Recently I have

    purchased external Headphone of Creative (HS-390) and tried hell like things

    in WINDOWS XP but it is not detecting my Microphone....The headset is working

    fine the only problem is with Microphone (I have tested Microphone on Desktop

    on XP its perfect).
    Please Help me to solve this issue.
    Thanking You...

    The Line-In port on the MacBook is line level and doesn't work with nearly all microphones. You're going to need a USB headset for the easiest solution. You could use the iMic as well.

    Even as a USB audio device? You might have to dig deeper in the mixer and Sound Control panel.

    Well I'll be darned. Works like a charm. Didn't even have to go into settings, it just picked it up.

    Wonder what I did wrong before.

    Thanks for the correction. This is good news to me.
