Not able to connect both separate webcam and external mic on an Ideapad 120S

2021-02-17, 11:45 AM

Hi all,

 

Am new here and having an issue connecting both a separate webcam (Logitech C930e) and an external mic.

 

When I plug the webcam in one USB Port and the mic in another, the mic does not work.

 

They work individually but not together.

 

I plan to use for You Tube and so this is frustrating.

 

Can anyone please help?

 

Thank you,

Neil

Hi Neilax,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

This is most likely due to the fact that the C930e has a integrated microphone (left and right of the camera).

 

Check the camera settings and see if you can disable the microphone, then plug the external one in and see if it works.

 

Regards

In any case, when connecting the Camera, it might be possible to disable this microphone in the camera settings or the device manager (Press the Windows key + X, select Device Manager), then select Microphone or Audio Inputs and Outputs. If there's a microphone device visible, you can try to right click it. Select "Disable" and then perform a restart of the device. If the microphone component of the camera is still disabled. Try plugging in the other external one and see if it works.
