OK guys I have just taken in my first even Mac! I have a unibody (early 2009) MacBook 2.0GHz Core2Duo, 2GB DDR3 RAM and a 160GB HDD.
Anyway, now down to the point of the post. I have been trying to get my Creative Fatality gaming Headset to work on it through a stander 3.5mm stereo jack. I would have though I could just plug it in and go, but it appear not to be detecting in in System preferences.
The Internal mic works fine, but the external does not. If I unplug it slowly the indicator suggests that it is picking up little bursts of sound, but nothing more.
