So basically this. I plug in my EarPods into the combo jack and no mic appears on the Recording tab in the "Sound" Control Panel widget. When I try this in OS X it works just fine. I've got all the Windows updates, removed Boot Camp 4 and then installed Boot Camp 5, then reinstalled Cirrus Logic drivers, each time rebooting it three times - nothing helped. I know I could use a USB headset (which I have to do right now), but I really like the EarPods, and they have a decent mic too, compared to the ****** built-in one. Should I try reinstalling Windows 7 or even getting Windows 8? Does this combo jack work for anybody?
