I don't know anything about Macs. But we were told by our Adobe supplier to get a USB headset/microphone as they have the better quality in audio.
USB Headset/Microphones do work better, much better. However, when trying to use mine with Adobe Cp4, it wasn't "reading it." In troubleshooting, this is what I found in the help menu,
Note: Adobe Captivate must be able to detect a recording device before trying to calibrate. Check that a microphone or recording device using “line in” is connected to your computer properly and is turned on before calibrating.
Looks like we are stuck with the 1/8" jack.
If you can get your USB to work, please post.
We have been successful in recording using a USB headset/microphone.
We have a Plantronics one. Model: Audio 630M, Model Number: 80299-01

Usually the issue is cleared up following Rick's suggestion and screenshot. However, you might also check to make sure the latest patch is installed.
The issues covered in the patch are listed here and include USB Mic issues:
I don't know what effect the Bootcamp/Mac deal would have on the drivers? I know the patch fixed a USB mic problem I had on Vista.
Thank you very much. I had checked this out, several times. What happened each time, was that Cp 4 shut down, unable to recognize my USB device.
However, doing a manual install of the latest patch (see John's link above), the problem is fixed. I've already performed a test run.
Thanks again for taking the time to answer my problem, offering help!
Thank you for the link. The manual install worked perfect. I'd been trying to install this patch for several days now through the Adobe Update checker from w/in Cp 4 & CS3. No luck.
I downloaded and installed the patch. My problem is fixed. I've run a succesul test and voila!
Thanks for taking the time to answer my post. It gave me hope that my USB mic would eventually work as well.
As you've probably read from my above two posts, problem solved with a manual install of the latest patch.
