Microphone does not work
Using Vista Home Premium....

I have a headphone/microphone headset with RCA-style connetors (NOT USB).

When I plug both connectors into my PC (Dell XPS), I get sound, but cannot
use the microphone.

When I right-click the SOUND icon in my system tray, and select RECORDING
DEVICES, the window says NO AUDIO DEVICES INSTALLED.

I reviewed the Device Manager and there are no warning icons.

This headset/mic combo worked fine in XP.

What do I need to do to get Vista to recognize the mic?

compatible nor was creative lab going to up date the driver for vista it was
the live 5.1 card. Hade to get a new sound card vista approved and then in
vista settings,de-mute the device setting under mic.
