If you decided to use the headset with two 1/4 inch cables, open Audacity's Device Toolbar
and choose the "External Mic" or "Headset Mic" as Recording Device (second box). We can't tell you what the recording device will be called exactly. Choose MME host in the first box.
Then click the Record button in Audacity to record to a new track. Hold SHIFT on your computer keyboard then click Record to record at the end of the same track, Make sure your Project Rate bottom left of Audacity is 44100 Hz.
If you don't see your headset mic in Audacity's Device Toolbar, right-click over the speaker icon by the system clock, then choose "Recording Devices". Right-click in empty space anywhere inside there and choose "Show disabled devices" then right-click again and choose "Show Disconnected Devices". Right-click the headset mic and choose "Enable". See here about how to use Windows Soundː http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Mixer ... es#vistacp
If you don't see your headset playback device in Audacity's Device Toolbar, change to playback devices in Windows Sound by clicking the "Playback" tab. Right-click in empty space anywhere inside there and choose "Show disabled devices" then right-click again and check "Show Disconnected Devices". Right-click over the headset and choose "Enable".
Restart Audacity after making changes in Windows Sound, before trying to record again.
