Sorry, but this is not suitable for connection to a computer. This model is designed for use with a mobile phone.

Have a look here for suitable devices [ame=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw_1_7?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=headset+with+microphone+for+computer&sprefix=headset]Amazon.com: headset with microphone for computer[/ame]

Even if I have the 3.5mm adapter on? So I can only use it as an ear piece maybe which can eliminate the echo

I've given up. My intel board has embedded audio so I'm going to remove my (2 month old) Creative and see if I can get the Mic to be picked up with Intel's version. I use Skype to stay in touch with family and friends in the UK so not having a Mic isn't an option. If this doesn't work I'll restore my Acronis backup with XP. I don't want to but no mic, no good.

Success! I took out the creative FX and the system instantly recognised my microphone. OK, it's not got all the features I wanted with the FX but at least I can now use Skype! So what have we learned: That Win 7 doesn't know how to deal with more than one iteration of a sound device. Maybe it's the same for people using built-in video cards too?

Hope this has been useful to someone.

Hi Richard B,
Before installing the Creative card did you disable the embedded audio in the bios? If not then no wonder Windows 7 was defaulting to the embedded audio device.

For someone who pops into this dialogue with less-than-useful tips your comment makes it sound as though this was obvious...

Given that was not necessary under XP how did you arrive at that conclusion?

Please don't troll Raj... either contribute or don't.

What about some kind of splitter that lets me plug in my headset to the headphone jack and the mic jack? Then could I make my headset work?
