Microphone Mic

Please, help. I got headphones with a microphone but now the mic isn't working any more?

I've recently gotten headphones with a microphone built in. The brand is "ROXY" and were only 10 bucks. I instantly plugged them into my iPod and they started working. But I've unplugged them and the re-plugged them in minutes later. My iPod nor laptop recognizes the mic, although the sound comes through loud and crystal clear. I'm kinda disappointed. Please help me fix them! :)

I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you're actually saying here... If the sound comes though loud and clear, then the microphone is working, right? I will assume the hardware is only recognized first time you plug it in.

It may be that what you're saying is the headphones are working, but not the microphone? If so, then there are only a few possible solutions:
- A faulty wire
- Faulty plug
- Faulty mike
- A switch on the headset (if there is one) to turn on
- Some setup changes needed in the software

At least on the lap top there should be a symbol in your task manager (desk top) to your sound card settings. Some time you will need to adjust these settings to get and audio input or output to work. Usually, it is pretty self explanatory, with sliders to adjust up or down :-)
