    I have an external microphone plugged into my iMac and it is recognised and works fine in Mac OS X but, it does not work under Windows XP, which I have installed on my iMac through Boot Camp. When I attempt to use Sound Recorder there is simply no sound. I have attempted to enable and to disable mic boost, but that has not worked. I would really like to get my mike to work under Windows XP in addition to Mac OS X.

    Thank you in advance.

    Be sure its selected as your input device in advanced recording properties.

    I don't have any sort of headset/mike-specific drivers installed, only the ones that came with Boot Camp. Should I have additional drivers?

    The only options that I have to set as my input device are Realtek HD Audio Input and Realtek HD Digital Input, it is currently set to the former.

    I have the Realtek audio drivers that came on my install CD, along with the rest of the drivers on that CD.
