external microphone worries

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
hey all,

here's a weird one- i have an older G4 tower (400mHz) that has no problem using an older mac microphone, it also worked on my old 7100/66. it doesn't work on my new G4 tower (1.25gHz) running panther 10.3.4. i've played with mic settings in system prefs, etc. nothing. the mic is fine. anyone else run into this?

a fellow mac user said the new G4s have a different input for mics and that's most likely the problem... can anyone confirm? sounds kind of goofy. why go thru the trouble of making a new mic input configuration for the latest generation G4?

thx in advance,

    No, the inputs have not changed. Have you tried a different mic? It's possible your input is bad.
