Windows 7: Getting a USB microphone into the "Levels" tab of speakers?

Getting a USB microphone into the "Levels" tab of speakers?

Hi, I have a USB Microphone, a Samson C01U. I also have a regular microphone, which I plug into the audio jack. The microphone that's plugged into the audio jack shows up correctly in the levels tab of my speaker's properties. I can mute/unmute it, and adjust the volume that I hear it in my speakers. My USB Microphone however, does not. Is there anyway I could get it to work that way and hear it in my speakers? Because I know that if I just use "listen to this device", there will be severe audio delay between when I speak and when I hear it.

So it's not coming up in your "playback devices" at all, or it is but isn't letting you change anything?

On Samson's website it says "Includes Cakewalk Recording Software for your PC: Sonar LE" Have you tried using this software? Also I think USB to 3.5mm adapters exist, maybe Windows would recognize it correctly if you used one of those?
