Just finished to build my pc and I just connected a pair of headsets (the one that I use with my phone) in order to access the mic.
The issue is that in order to record I need to speak into headphones speakers...the mic doesnt record.
Im using the frontpanel inputs.
Make sure that you have the cables going to the board connected properly. You can also try the ports on the motherboard and see if you get the same issue.
Ill try another pair of headsets...the cables seems ok on the motherboard..
You'll want to check the motherboards manual to download the latest software update for audio configurations. Front panel connections can either work independently via Windows default configurations (where motherboards back I/Os tend to work flawlessly) or if having problems download the manufacturers personalised software. These applications will offer additional presets/settings to manage input/output functions.
If you need help downloading the correct software package, let us know your mobo spec.
