Microphone software test

  Fyrebird1 12:11 20 Nov 2005

I have just bought a new Creative Live! webcam with microphone. The cam works perfectly but the microphone doesnt. I was advised to try the software test on the control panel for XP. It doesnt work. First i get a norton message saying theres an attempt to connect, which i allow and then i get the error message " an error occured during direct play voice set up error code is OX80004005. The i get a message saying DPVsetup.exe use add remove programmes control panel to install.

Then im stuck as what do i do next?

Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Audio (and) Voice tabs check your default device for voice recording is set to your webcam mike.

Have you checked the micrphone is not muted in the sound control panel?also try runing dxdiag from the run box,then goto the network tab and click the directplay voice options tab there is a wizard and a troubleshooter option,try the wizard first.
