View Full Version : No Mic Jack?

03-30-07, 08:20 PM
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels is what I just got. I paid 99 bucks for at Computers Plus. I got it home and according to the manual the "Flexijack" on it can be used for several things including a mic. However I have yet to get it to work.

I've gone to the recording controls selected microphone, and everything. Still nothing..

I have all the drivers install yet still no mic playback through TS or even through Windows Hardware Test.. How do I get this to work, if someone could figure this out I'd be thankful.

I use my X-Fi platinum rear jack as a mic-in... In game mode (never use the others), click settings at the bottom, and in the box labelled "Digital I/O" Flexijack Mode, select "Mic-In / Line-In" ands thats it.

Oh and make sure mic is the selected and not mic2 as the input source :)

Nothing like that here for me... no clue why it doesnt show. I have microphone showing.. and a Line in.

What mode are you using? Try switching to game mode and doing it that way...I believe its different for each mode, well, the method for getting it...

Here, I was nice enough to make you a little guide (http://ngz.ath.cx:88/t/core/D/My%20Pictures/xfi01.jpg) :)

EDIT: Oh, and the mic plugin is the LAST connector on the card, the one farthest from the motherboard.

Fixed had to unplug front port audio connector. It was for some reason giving issues.
