Skype question.

Being very new to Skype,only installed this morning,I seem to be having trouble using the built in Mic of my Steelseries Siberia V2 headset.
I get sound though the headset but cannon seem to get the Mic working. The Mic works fine with my online games so I am wondering if either I need to get a separate Mic or am I missing some setting?
I do have a Logitech C270 web-cam coming so hopefully I will be able to get that to work.

Is the mic selected in Skype, Tools, Options, Audio Settings?

Don't know what happened to that link - but it works OK

You will note from the link above that the microphone volume has to be muted

Very strange,I have an old Philips headset which works perfectly.

So I will call this resolved for now.
