    Simple microphone connector Q...

    Hi,

    I purchased a few "handsfree cel system" mics to hookup to my pc to use for cell calls, and voice activation... anyways, the 2 small mics I got have a mic connector that isnt really compatible with my soundcard mic input...

    they look like this connector: http://www.alltronics.com/images/99V014.JPG

    basically it appears that the regular "Creative Labs webcam mic" have 3 contact areas, and this one only 2....

    What is this difference? can I just hack in there and adapt this to a "3-contact plug"? what parts correspond to what?

    you prolly got a 2.5mm plug (Cell phones commonlly use these) while your comp needs a regular 3.5mm headphone jack. They sell little cable converters on ebay

    I live in Brazil though, so ebay is really a long way away...

    Any idea on the pinout? and why are the 3.5mm plugs 2 connector areas and the 2.5mm 2 areas?
