What kind of microphone can my boot-camp'd Mac use?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a boot-camp'd Mac Pro (desktop, not laptop), and can't seem to figure out anything in terms of a microphone. I tried a bluetooth mic, but it only works on the Mac OS (Windows doesn't like the bluetooth-reading hardware, I guess).

And now I just bought a Zalman clip-on mic, and I'm getting NOTHING out of it. The computer says there's something plugged into the jack, but I get no sound. I did some research after that, and it sounds like the microphone jack is just a line-in jack, and doesn't provide power to the mic (and the Zalman doesn't have an external power source or outlet plug).

What do you suggest?

Try buying a USB microphone, I have

and it works great, it's worth the money the quality is pretty good too. It works with Apple too because it's on their website.
