The problem is that i recently bought a mic and i wanted to plug it in my laptop so i got a divider( not shure if thats the name for it , its a cable that splits headphone/microphone jack into 2 separate jacks , one is for the mic and the other is for the headphones ) and even with this the computer wont recognize the mic.. when i go to recording devices i cant find the new mic option! please help!
