I bought a USB mic which the manufacturer states doesn't need a phantom power supply. I plug it into my Win 10 laptop and... nothing. I look in device manager and there is nothing there. I go into manage audio devices and look under recording and all I see is the microphone array. Any help?

Did Windows try to locate driver[s] for it?  [I see two of us posted at the same time  :) ]

Hey guys, thanks for the reply. The make is MyArmor and the model is (BM-100FX) Professional Condenser Microphone Pro Audio Studio Vocal Recording Mic (Amazon link: https://tinyurl.com/zwgpyjw)

 

Windows did not detect it at all. I wonder if it really does need a power supply because it doesn't show up anywhere on my laptop

Oh, it seems to work now. It didn't need any drivers, it's practically plug and play. I think there was something wrong with the cable.

 

Thanks for your help!
