Let me know if you need other information about my computer.
The problem I'm having is with any headset mic I plug into my computer. The earphones work any time, but the mic will only work with some programs. This is a new development. My mic used to work any time. I used to use a Logitech headset, but when the mic started having problems I bought a new headset. I currently use the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D. I don't remember which Logitech headset I used to use.
Programs my mic works with:
Sound Blaster Tactic 3D control panel (voice test)
Rosetta Stone (both the program and the online version I use through my university)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (but only in voice chat and voice test **NOT IN GAME**)
Programs my mic does not work with:
The speech recognition software for windows
Sound Recorder (which I downloaded from the internet)
Windows Audio Recorder Professional (trial version)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (doesn't work in game, but does work when I do the voice test)
Any online voice recorder
I know it must have something to do with the settings on my computer, but I can't figure it out. When I go to Devices and Printers in the Control Panel, it doesn't even show my headset. However, when I click the speaker icon on my taskbar, it shows that I am using a headset for audio. Also, audio works for everything. I have downloaded the most recent drivers for my headset, so I don't think that's it.
I think that covers it. Please help as soon as possible. This issue is urgent because I need to record my voice for an oral assignment for my university.
