MSN sound failure

I have been chatting to a mate in Australia on this MSN thingy. I can hear him and see him but he can't hear me. I can only find one audio looking plug on my computer and just plugged the headphones in. Any clues anyone as to what i am doing wrong, or not doing at all?

Has your "MSN thingy" (Camera) got a Microphone onboard or are you using a separate Microphone.

If you don't have a mic. He won't hear you! If your sound card has no input for one, USB varieties exist cheaply:

Hi all, i have ditched my cheapo webcam and seperate mic for a microsoft webcam, supposedly MSN specific, microsoft lifecam. Now i can't link the webcam to the msn, all i can do is get it up on my screen to capture pics or vids of myself. I have spoke to friends in Holland so the mic' is working?

Can only suggest that you check firewall / AV settings.
