    Hi,

    I just got iSight working but unfortunately I don't have the internal microphone (I'm quite sure long long time ago there was a parallels build which had this working).

    The only way to get my voice into wndows is using a seperate microphone (but because my MacBook Pro has only a line-in) it sounds very weak (besides looking like singing Karaoke in the messenger...)

    Any Idea ? Hints ?

    Thanks & best regards,
    Uezi

    I also need to figure out how to get my volume input to go in to windows xp and not record from my mic when I do SnagIt8.2 from windows. No matter what input settings I use on my windows control panel, I can't get it to change from the built in mic on my macbook pro????

    Looks like the exact opposite of my problem.
    What Mac (exactly) do you have ?
    I've got a MacBook Pro 2GHz Core Duo (1st Gen.)

    Ok, so I adjust my control panel settings in windows to record the input from "Stereo Mix"

    this is audio tab, then sound recording box "volume"

    So windows should be recording what it hears. Unfortunately, I'm picking up the recording from my macbook pro internal mic which I'm guessing is still active on the Mac side.

    You select the Mic as the input on the Mac side before launching Parallels.

    Parallels uses whatever input the Mac is set to use...

    Unused_user_name !

    Your a hero !
    Because of my last music project, I had set it to record from an external source.
    Switched it back to Mic...
    Got it working now ...

    Thanks !
    Uezi !

    Ho, ho!

    Ditto, here - I'm trying to use a bluetooth headset w/ VOIP software. Couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting any volume. Set the sound device on the Mac, rebooted XP, and, voila! The sound is much better.

    Would be nice, of course, if Parallels could see the sound device change and adapt to on the fly. Later versions, I guess.

    I can record in "sound recorder". Did you set the Mac OS X's side ? Go to "System Preference" -> "Sound" -> "Input" and select the source you want to record from (e.g. "Internal Microphone").

    What Mac are you using ? Otherwise it could be your System. I see you're using 10.4.9...

    Could this be related?

    Hi, is this problem related to this: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=691546&start=0&tstart=0

    I had mic inputs working fine, but this week they have stopped working (through both osx & xp) - the only software I have installed in this time is parallels (RC2).

    I've contacted applecare and we've tried all the usual stuff apart from a clean osx install - which I plan to do later this week. If that don't work they have told me to take it in for repair.

    Is it even possible that parallels could have disabled the mic in osx also - anyone else seeing this?
