Yes, I set the input level. My internal mic works... I wonder what the deal is...
A microphone does not produce a line level signal. If you are plugging into a Mac with a line-in, you will need a preamp of some description to boost the mic's signal to line-level voltages.
Put the Mic through a mixer, or a stand-alone preamp, or get an alternate interface like a Griffin iMic or a firewire or USB digital audio interface.
I'd use a USB mic or get an amplifier like CanadaRAM suggested.
I've had go results using USB sound car...boxes. I have a Creative one before they crippled it and it has so many in/output options. (Optical, line, and composite.)
Thanks for the quick replies.
I will pick up a USB headset tomorrow, hopefully I won't get gouged too much... friggin Best Buy.
