This is for Vista, Windows 7 should follow the same procedure.

After some more "testing" ive noticed that on the audio drivers "controllpanel" it dont notice the eyeball but it can see my old mic but in the windows sound menu under the recording tab i can see the eyeball. depending if i connect it to the frontpanel or on the back of my computer it gives me diffrent information about the mic. in the front it just tells me its a usb audio device but at the back it knows its a eyeball.
Ive also tried downsgrading the eyeballs driver since i noticed that the other computer i testet the mic on, but i cant find any older drivers.
