it won´t be detected as AT2020 because it´s not a digital mic. Set the usb mic device to default record device in windows sound
That was one of the first things I tried and it didn't make a difference. It detects that the mic is there and everything the only problem is when I talk it doesn't pick up any audio. No talking or sound.

did you try it on another computer/laptop?

update the driver of the USB audio device in the device manager of windows

Maybe the cable is defective or the mic itself
All drivers are up to date and both the mic and cable are brand new. I just received both and haven't used either once.

Best way to show my issue is this. I talked into both mics I have and next to it is the green bar picking up the audio. Mic 1 (current) pickups my audio, but Mic 2 (at2020) does not.

I saw somewhere that you have to have sufficient power to run the mic. Not sure if that helps troubleshooting, but I don't know anything about that. So I might not have enough power or something? or a different issue.
