Sameer, have you tested which of them is output?


Ask since, in audacity, in the toolbar for selecting audio devices, etc., chances are then that MS sound mapper device will map to the external microphone socket, especially if it has something like a microphone plugged in to it.


Stay well

Hi David

My laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad y5070 which has 2 3.5 mm jacks.  I
assume 1 of them is for earphone / speaker out and the other for
mic-in.

Hi Sameer,
How many 3.5mm sockets does your laptop have?
Do you know the model of your laptop?
If the laptop has a single 3.5mm socket, then you'll probably need an
adapter such as the startech MUYHSMFF
to be able to plug in an external microphone which has a 3.5mm plug.

Hi all

I have a stand alone Logiteq mic connected to the 3.5 mic-in jack on
my Lenovo laptop which doesn't appear to be picked up and recognized
by Audacity (my audacity doesn't for some or other reason have the
external mic as a possible input source).

When I go to preferences, and then devices, the only input device
listed is the laptop's internal mic.

What should I do to enable my stand alone Logiteq mic for recording?

Any help would really be appreciated.

Kindest regards

Sameer
