I'm trying to figure out whether my mic does or does not work, and if not, how I can make it work.
I opened my Sound preferences and looked under "input". The little green bars respond to the sound of my breathing. The mic also showed up fine on an online "check your mic" test. So it seems like it's working.
So I tried to take a recording of my voice with Audio Recorder; but when I played the file, I couldn't hear sound. Now, the application I played it with has an option to show a waveform of the sound being played. All it showed was a flat line, meaning that no sound was being played. I tried recording again, closer to the mic, but I got the same result when I tried to play it back.
Then I opened the Driver Manager, and it says "This device is not working." Okay, fine. But then why is it detecting sound online and when I have Sound Preferences open?
Does anyone know what is going on with this? Is there a way to fix it? Thanks in advance.
