It was working fine when I bought it. I think it was an update or something that made it stop. I don't think the Mic is broken, at least I hope not. Can anyone help?

Please? I need it before tommorrow. I'm working on a video.

I get this when I check the terminal for what USB devices are connected:

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub 
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 2525:8912
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 058f:9360 Alcor Micro Corp. 8-in-1 Media Card Reader
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 056a:00d2 Wacom Co., Ltd
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Okay, so I remember it working fine around 10.04 then I stopped using the Microphone and upgraded to 10.10 and now the computer doesn't recognize it. – TheNerdAL Dec 21 '10 at 1:47
I tested it on a Windows computer and it said it couldn't recognize it either, do you think it's the microphone? – TheNerdAL Dec 21 '10 at 17:16

When you unsuccessfully tried it on your windows pc, did you install the drivers for it? If it didn't work on windows with the official drivers, then you have a hardware problem. Could be:

  • your usb port or hub is broken
  • the mic is broken

Doesn't bode well that it doesn't detect the device with a name.
