Using Line In instead of Mic In for my Microphone, what's the difference?

For some reason when I try plugging in a audio cable into my microphone in (have not tried actuall microphone yet), windows 8 will not reconise it and says "not plugged in".  But when I plug it into "line in", it recognises it, and I am able to record my testing it by tapping on the other end of the cables jack with my finger in sound recorder.


My question is that is there a difference in audio quality between "line in" and "microphone in when using a microphone to record"?  I have a small audio amplifer for microphones that I use to record as well.


Thank you.
