it seems that you have to update the driver software.
you can get the software via this link:


If you installed the Creative software,
go to the EAX app, at the bottom is a section that is for RECORDING,
click the menu next to the RECORD button and check the SOURCE.
If it is not on MIC, select MIC and your MIC should now work.
I had the exact same problem, and after a lot of searching around what I had to do is open your creative audio control panel, and in the FlexiJack tab change it from line-in to microphone.
Calvin ur my hero. Searched for hours and hours, and this more or less simple solution worked. THANKS!!!
