    Mic on Creative Live! Cam Optia Pro not working properly(static)

    Hi,

    i'm on XP SP 2, soundcard = Creative Soundblaster Live!

    i can't use the default mic on the web cam properly, it has very loud static (with/without the noise cancellation feature turned on)

    I tried using Windows > Entertainment > Sound Recorded to test

    and indeed static sound zzzzzzzz is recorded all the time even with no other sound recorded, thus i can't use it to chat online as the static is very loud. I have enscure in 'Audio properties' i am using the mic correctly

    the cam is connected to the com thru USB only, thus shldn't be a prob of the soundcard mic port

    tried updating to latest drivers, but same prob.

    is mine a faulty set?

    below are 2 same samples recorded

    I have the same problem on my Live Cam OPtia AF, it's connected in belkin network USB. I have tried to connect it on normal USB at the back of my PC but computer wont recognise it. I should have bought the cheaper one might work so easily.

    I just got a Live! Cam Socialize HD and have the same problem. Static noise from the mic. I have it running straight into the USB on my Mac PPC w/ OS 10.5.8. There is static on Skype and when I record videos from the webcam. Any help?
