Mic Not Recognised On Macbook

External mic not recognized by windows 7 installed on boot camp of macbook (snow leopard). External mic not recognized by windows 7 installed on boot camp of macbook (snow leopard). The sound system(via control panel ) shows internal mic (cirrus logic cs 4206a-ab01 ) as default, & on right-click to see disabled/disconnected devices, nothing shows up. I also installed the realtek driver from the mac installation cd, nothing works.

When i plug in the headset though, i get sound output from the only jack on the macbook in the headset & the headphone shows up in the sound system too, but mic doesn't show up (not recognized). I also uninstalled the cirrus logic device (not driver) & did restart. Windows 7 installed the device on restart, but the non-recognition of mic persists.

Please guide, how can the windows 7 recognize the external mic. I don't want to use the internal mic (for speech recognition software).

Cannot Get Mic To Work

Under windows 7 none of my mic are working. I do have sound going through the headset but the mic won't pic anything up, this is with a usb headset. Same thing with my headset with jacks. My mic was working on 12-28, but nest time after that i tried to use it (1-2 i believe) it would not work. I've tried drivers and everything, but no go. Some more info, i have uninstalled drivers and reinstalled them. I have taken out my expansion sound card and just went with on board. I have rolled back drivers and even did a system restore to a point there i knew the mic worked and still nothing.

Upgrade From Xp To 7 On Macbook Pro

Upgrade from xp to 7 on macbook pro, without loading bootcamp or the apple os. I have a macbook pro with leopard 10. 5. 1, and i was running windows xp pro service pack 3 on the windows side. I updated to windows 7 , but did not do anything on the apple side. Big mistake, windows 7 works fine but! I have no apple. In order to get the apple working again, what do i need to do? Will i have to restart my upgrade, and use bootcamp with the leopard. If you could provide or direct me to someone who could, step by step instruction on this please do so.

My windows data is still on carbonite and i have no issues with having to lose my apple side memory. I have a external drive if needed i also have 37. 3gig free space common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Cannot Use Wireless Internet On Macbook

Cannot use wireless internet on my macbook when running windows 7 through boot camp. I have no problems at all when i use the same laptop to connect to the internet wirelessly using the mac os x operating system. My older laptop running windows xp also has no problem connecting. I've tried going to the control panel, then network and sharing center, then connect to a network, and it shows that no connections are available.

When i click on change adapter settings, only two options are shown: the bluetooth network connection, which is not connected, and the local area connection, which would be the wired connection because it says the network cable is unplugged. My router does not have a bluetooth connection. I made sure all the drivers were installed.

Installing Win 7 Oem To Macbook

Im a pc and mac user, my laptop is a macbook pro. My work requires me to use windows to run windows specific programs so on the way home i dropped into a pc store and asked for a copy of windows 7 premium. They handed a "no frills" copy used for once only installs oem. Got home, reading the pack, looking on the net.confused. This oem eula is not as clear as it could be really. I want to install it on my mbp in boot camp, the guy at the shop said its alright. I have seen it writtenoem versions of windows 7 are identical to full license retail versions except for the following:

- Oem versions do not offer any free microsoft direct support from microsoft support personnel

- Oem licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on

- Oem versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

- Oem versions cannot be used to directly upgrade from an older windows operating systemso, microsoft. Can i install this legitimate windows copy i just bought on my new machine (clean install, never ran windows before) or do i need to get a technician to do it for me at the shop before its legal? It seems a bit silly to me. Seriously. When i bought my car they didn't tell me which roads to drive on and not to drive on.

Reinstall On Dual Booting Macbook

I installed a recently purchased full version of windows 7 ultimate on my dual booting macbook pro laptop but am unable to install the xp compatibility module. Apparently there is an authenticity issue. The problem may be due to the fact that when i partitioned the disk and installed windows, i inadvertently corrupted the mac os x system. So i reinitialized the disk and installed os x again. Windows 7 apparently installed successfully. But when i downloaded the windows xp compatibility module it failed to install. The message indicates that there is an authenticity issue.

Genuine Win 7 On Macbook Pro

Genuine windows 7 on macbook pro running in bootcamp partition with vmware fusion 3. 1. I am having a problem with windows 7 ultimate 32-bit. I installed windows 7 on my bootcamp partition and until recently it worked fine as well when i ran it in vmware fusion. When i boot into my windows 7 on the bootcamp partition everything is ok. But then when i run it in vmware fusion it says my copy is not genuine. I just went through the automated phone system and entered the codes and so now while i'm running in fusion windows is genuine.

I fear though that when i go back to running from the bootcamp partition, windows will say it isn't genuine again. I only have one copy of windows 7 and can only run it either from the bootcamp partition or from vmware fusion at any one time. How can i resolve this so windows no longer says it's not genuine when i switch between bootcamp and vmware fusion?I need to be able to run windows while i am on the mac side at times.

Macbook Does Not Detect Wireless Network

Window 7 installed on macbook - does not detect any wireless network/connection at all only on windows os system side. I have installed windows 7 on my new macbook, so my macbook operate both on apple macos and windows os. However, my windows os side does not detect any wireless network at all. When i switch back to apple os, there is no problem connecting to the internet and there is no connection problem at all.

But for some reason, my windows 7 does not detect or show any available wireless network. I use linksys wrt-110, and i don't think it is my router problem because it works perfectly on apple macos system. Does anybody have any solution? I am not very tech-savvy, i.e. , I need step-by-step explanation as to how to tackle this.

Usb Is Recognised, But Does Not Appear In My Computer

I've searched through the forums here, and tried many of the answers people have given for this problem. I tried unchecking the 'hide empty drives in the computer folder' option. I also tried going through disk management and changing the drive letter, but this option does not even appear. The drives are marked unallocated, and the only options i have are about shrinking or spanning volumes. The drives work fine in other computers, and is recognized when it is plugged in because it gives me the 'remove safely' option.

Macbook Pro Sound Driver Issues

I own a macbook pro, one of the new 15 inch unibody models, and since installing windows 7, i have not been able to properly use the onboard microphone (in windows) and the sound has been acting quite odd.

The osx installation cd included with my computer is supposed to install the required drivers on the windows side, and it seems to have done that, for the most part, except i could not use the microphone in a multitude of applications. The 'sound' control panel recognizes the microphone, and shows that the microphone is receiving sound. The little green level bar next to "microphone" moves when i make noise, yet no application seems to get any sound from it.

After a little research, i gathered that the sound card in these is actually a realtek hd card, and not a cirrus logic card, which is what i had drivers for. So i tracked down the realtek driver i thought i needed, uninstalled the cirrus logic driver, and installed the realtek one. However, that realtek driver did not seem to do anything, as the driver is now just listed as high definition audio device, which is the standard windows driver.

Other issues i've been having with the cirrus logic driver - once i plug headphones in, i can't get sound out of the laptop speakers again unless i restart windows. Also, if itunes is playing, the sound in all other programs in gone and doesn't come back unless i restart the program.

I guess i need to know if a) i'm correct about the realtek driver being the right one, b) the cirrus driver is actually correct and there's another solution to the microphone and other problems or c) there is no hope.

Installing On Mid 2009 Macbook Pro

I'd like to install the 64 bit edition on win7 profession on a macbook pro. I've got 4gb of ram and i'd like to use the most of it when using applications like cad. I'm currently running the rc (32 bit) on osx 10. 5, but plan on zeroing out my hd (due in part to some osx software issues) and reinstalling snow leopard.

I was wondering if there are any problems associated with installing the 64 bit edition on bootcamp 3. 0. I know that while 7 isn't officially supported, installation is possible. However, i have heard about issues occurring with 3. 0 that i do not experience with the rc and bootcamp 2. 1.

I was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and has a course of action to suggest. Should i install 64 bit on 3. 0, or 2. 1? Or, should i opt for the 32 bit version instead? Again, does one release of bootcamp work better than the other?

Another thing, should i install now and wait for the (now late) windows 7 support, or not install until support is officially released?

Directx Problem Bootcamp On Macbook Pro

So i installed win7 64-bit on my macbook pro (intel dup 2. 66 ghz, nvidia gt 9400m, 4gb ddr3) using bootcamp wanting to play games. I kinda want to go pick up starcraft 2 but i don't want to buy a mac version of a game especially since i might be getting a pc desktop within the next year sometime. Nyways, so when i launch games, usually they just won't launch without saying anything or it will give me some message about direct3d. So, when i go in the directx diagnostic tool, it lists directdraw, direct3d, and tgp texture acceleration as 'not available'.

I checked and made sure that the hardware acceleration was at the fullest level, which it was. Next, i went online to see what others were doing, and i found in a few places where people were installing directx 9. 0 alongside directx 11 that comes with win7. I tried to install it and i get the following error message:"internal system error. Please refer to dxerror. Log and directx. Log in your windows folder. "From there i just wanted to post a few places and see if anyone else has ran into these issues running win7 on a mac or anything like that. I know these laptops are supposed to run games over bootcamp pretty well, but i can't seem to get over this issue. Just looking for a next step.

Unibody Macbook Pro Erratic Mouse Behavior

I have a unibody macbook pro 13 inch, and using boot camp 3. 0 on windows 7 rc. The drivers for the trackpad suck, the mouse is so twitchy. Is there any fix for this erratic mouse behavior? Tried doing a search on this issue, and found links to drivers through another forum that ppl claim fixed their trackpads. But when i go to install the .exe, it says "this update is not intended for this computer and will not be installed. " The compatibility settings didn't help at all either.

Syncing Samsung Intrepid Cell Phone Using Macbook

I cannot even download the free downloads from the windows website on my computer - it just will not accept it. I don't know what to do, do i have to start buying all this software to connect them? I would love to sync them and i would love to get some of the free downloads, how can i do this without spending a fortune? If i could not sync them i guess that would be okay but i would really like the downloads. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Usb Memory Sticks Not Recognised

Two of my usb memory sticks (out of a total of 6) crashed win7 to a blue screen when first inserted. These two drives can be seen in device manager and in disk manager they show as disk 6. They have no drive letter and no volume. Attempting to format them or change the drive letter via disk manager always results in an error message saying that disk manager needs to be refreshed but this has no effect. These two disks can be seen and work perfectly on another pc running win7 and they also work on my vista partition.

I tried to apply a microsoft hotfix kb297694 (for xp) but this does not run. I think it is a registry problem (i get the bingbong when the drive is inserted and the safe removal icon but no sign of the drive in explorer or my computer). Does anyone have a fix?

Usb Printer Device Not Recognised

I have a canon mp810 multifunction printer. It is a usb printer. It has worked fine on my old dell desktop pc. And my dell 1525 notebook can also talk to it via a wifi network and print (most of the time). But when i plug the printer directly into the notebook, i get an error "usb device not recognized". I have tried installing new win 7 versions of the drivers from canon but nothing seems to work. Oh yes i can add the printer to the device list, but it is not recognized properly and ultimately won't print.

And as a control measure, i borrowed another dell notebook (slightly older model) and just plugged the printer cable into the usb port and that notebook proceeded to access windows update and download the drivers and all was fine within about 10 minutes. Something is wrong with my notebook. And the problem is specific to this printer because i can plug in other devices to the usb ports and they work fine. The only other printer devices are onenote and xps and fax.

External Hard Drive Not Recognised

I bought an asus intel pentium with window 7 installed - i also had comodo but changed to avg - as the former blocked everything coming to my computer. Although the computer recognizes that i have attached a wd external hard drive or cruzer usb stick - it does not let me open it. In addition it does asks me repeatedly to back up my computer, but then does not recognize my dvd burner. Never had these problems before - my old dell is still working fine and recognizes all the external apparatus.

Usb Devices Not Recognised After Upgrading

Usb ports have power but won't recognize devices i'm running windows 7, 64 bit and ever since i upgraded the usb ports have been really flaky and now they won't read most devices. I've tried by sansa mp3 player and nikon digital camera in my old laptop and it reads them both instantly, but my new laptop can't see them. The disk spins a lot, but nothing happens. The ports will charge devices, but won't recognize them. All the usb drivers are up to date when i go through the device manager. Funny thing is that i go from zero problems with vista to this. Any real fixes to this issue?.

External Usb Hdd Not Recognised By Win 7

External usb hdd not recognized by win 7, and no longer recognized under win xp. Maxtor usb 300gb external hdd working fine on windows xp. Unplugged and attached to new windows 7 pc. Os responds by saying device found and working properly. I use the disk to download assorted files.

Then moved cpu a few feet (did not switch off or move usb hdd). Reboot, and usb hdd not seen as a working disk. Seems very unlikely that hdd damaged at this time. Manage disks shows the disk apparently working but not "initialized". Right click to initialize. Hour glass shows for ~2 seconds, and goes away, but disk not initialized.

Reattach to old win xp computer, and now looks the same as on the win 7 machine, not initialized and not unrealizable.gots lots of data on that hdd which i would like to keep, so have you guys got any new ideas?

Canon Eos 40d Camera Not Recognised

I am hoping people here can help. I have been trying this all weekend with no success. I have a canon eos40d camera. It previously connected fine with xp, but now, not with win7 (32bit). I have installed the latest canon utilities (but according to them, they do not provide the drivers). They tell me that the camera should work just by connecting the camera to the computer by usb. When i do this, i encounter the error "driver not installed properly".

I have looked to see if it is recognized as a storage drive of sorts in my computer, but it does not appear there either. Canon tells me that the wia driver allows it to communicate with the computer. I have been looking for a win 7 wia driver to no avail. I have searched forums and the net for solutions to no avail. I have even read about changing the communication method to ptp or something in the camera's menu system. My camera does not have that option (or at least, i have not been able to find it).

External Esata Raid Device Not Recognised

I have a g-tech graid 4th generation 2tb external triple interface esata/firewire/usb device. I also have another generic esata raid device. My computer is based on a tyan s2696 motherboard and has on-board lsi sas 3000 series, 8 port with 1068e, driver version 1. 28. 03. 52. The computer dual boots xp pro and windows 7 professional x64. The generic esata raid device works fine in both operating systems. The gtech raid works fine attached by esata in windows xp, and in windows 7 when attached by firewire or usb rather than esata, however when attached by esata in windows 7 pro x64 the computer does not mount the volume. It does not appear in disc manager.

In device manage it appears with a question mark under other devices and is described as an ata esata-2 external scsi disk device. Ok, so because the g-tech raid works in xp i am assuming that there are no hardware issues, so this must be an operating system issue. What really puzzles me though is that the generic esata raid box works just fine under windows 7. Can anyone provide any insight, or, even better, a solution?

I know it seems simple and it was but it took a long time to figure out. " This came from a form here (http://social. has all been futile. Ironically my older notebook, which runs xp, gives me full access to both the drives. Please can somebody offer me some advice on how to deal with this issue.

.xml File Located In System32 Folder, Is Not Recognised

I have a problem concerning an xml document and windows 7 system32 folder. I have recently installed the latest driver for my nvidia graphics card and one of the files it loads is nvapps.xml into the windows7 system32 folder. I also use a programme called nhancer which modifies the nvidia programme for the benefit of ms flight simulator x (my hobby).

I now find that nhancer cannot load because it cannot find the nvapps.xml file in system32. If i highlight the nvapps.xml file in system32 and press open or edit, i get the message which says :- windows cannot find "c:windowssystem32nvapps.xml". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. (Actually, i get this message three layers thick on the screen (i.e. I have to acknowledge it three times before the message disappears from the screen)). I have found that there are ten *.xml files within system32 and five of them produce the above message and the remaining five all open easily and correctly. Of the five that windows cannot find two of them are associated with the nvidia driver and the other three are not in any way connected with that driver. I have also found that if i copy the nvapps.xml file to a different folder or hard drive, then i can open or edit it quite normally and without difficulty. I would be grateful for any advice or comment that about my problem.
