I have a pair of Beats Solo HD with a built in mic and I plan to use them to record my voice and record videos so I can upload them to Youtube. My problem is that my computer won't recognize the mic. I can hear the sound perfectly when watching a video but I can't seem to get the mic to work. Is there something I need to turn on or something I should download to make this work; I have an HP 530 running a 32-bit version of Ubuntu 13.04 an Intel® Celeron(R) M CPU 440 @ 1.86GHz, an Intel® 945GM x86/MMX/SSE2 graphics card and 1 GB of Memory.
