How can I get an audio-in connector to work with a MacBook Pro (Mid 2012)?

I have a Plantronics headset with two cables: audio in and audio out (like the two connectors on the old MacBooks). It is pretty old and so I assumed it was for those. I have tried to get it to work with my mid-2012 MacBook Pro, but the microphone (audio in [yes, it does have a picture of a microphone on it]) cable isn't recognized by the Mac. It thinks it is headphones, and unsuccessfully tries to play sound through it. The other cable (audio out), however, successfully receives sound and plays it through.
I hope that makes sense, and I would appreciate any help .

They removed the audio input, starting from your model, you will need an USB interface, there are may, and it depends on how high of quality you need.
This works for most applications, unless you are trying to record "music quality"

  • How Can I Get an 23" Cinema Display to work with a MacBook Pro 15"?

    A 23" Cinema Display (M8536) will not display with and adapter connected to a MacBook Pro 15" (mid 2010). Adapter used is Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter. What's wrong?

  • Can I get a Dell U2410 Monitor to work with a MacBook Pro?

    I rashly bought this monitor. It looks lovely but it has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200, which I could not get with the VGA connection, and Dell do not make drivers for the Mac at all. Is there any chance of getting this monitor to work properly with my MacBook Pro? I found the Dell support site extremely difficult to penetrate, so I put the monitor back in its box and am going to sell it if I can't easily find out how to use it.
    Any advice is welcome.

    I think you are using the wrong adapter. Higher resolutions require the use of a mini display port to DVI or DVI-D Dual link adapter. A VGA adapter will not do the job.
    And I assume you are trying "extended" and not "mirrored" mode. What model Macbook Pro do you have?

  • I can't make mi iPhone 5s work with my MacBook Pro Mid 2012

    Thank's in advance

    Hey ersalazar1,
    Thanks for the question. After reviewing your post, it sounds like you want to use continuity with your devices. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help you resolve or isolate the issue.

  • How can I get the old view of iCal back on my MacBook Pro and iPhone?

    How can I get the old view of iCal back on my MacBook Pro and iPhone?  The Mavrick version is crisp and clean but a colored dot is not the same as a highlighted word. I rely on my iCal on my MacBook Pro and iPhone 5 to help me track which of the 8 sites I visit for my job during the week - the color coding is (was key) to organizing and tracking meetings.  I hate the upgrade! 

    If purchased through the Mac App Store then it can be installed on up to five authorized CPUs. Otherwise, it's controlled by the license that came with the software.
    To install on another computer copy the downloaded installer application to the other computer.

  • How can i get or download the apple hardware test for a macbook pro made in 2012 running Mavericks 10.9.3

    Does anyone know how can i get or download the apple hardware test for a macbook pro made in 2012 running Mavericks 10.9.3. Thanks.

    Sean and Andy -
    I have to agree with Andy here. I am having the same problem on a mid 2010 MBP (6,2). I have already read the AHT info provided by Sean's link, and they are less than helpful. I'm sure they will be helpful to those who find that they work, but they are confusing if this is not the case. For example, my MBP(6,2) came with ONE (not two) installation disks, so the instructions don't work for me. Another issue is the instructions confound the descriptions related to the MBP, the original (delivered) software (OS X version), and the current installed OS X upgrade software.
    So here's what does NOT work for me... 
         (A) I cannot install 'Disk 2', since I never received this with my original (new) purchase in mid 2010.
         (B) I have checked my firmware versions and they are all up to date, as per Apple's information.
         (C) As suggested in another thread, I looked for /Library/Core Services/.diagnostics and it was NOT present. I followed his instructions, downloaded the correct (I believe) dmg, and installed it. It is in the correct place, and I can see all the invisible files using Pathfinder.
         (D) When I re-start holding down the D key (immediately), it just goes through the normal boot routine; no evidence of AHT.
         (E.1) When I re-start holding down OPT-D, I get a spinning globe, and then it prompts me for a network (wi-fi) connection.
         (E.2) For some unknown reason, the prompt identifies between 2 and 5 of my --neighbors'--  routers, but does not show mine. (??!!)
         (E.3) The routers are listed alphabetically; however, my router SHOULD be at the top of the list by this criterion, but it is nowhere to be seen.
         (E.4) The 'internet recovery' process then allows me to enter a network name AND password. I do this, for my current wi-fi router, and the process rejects it as an incorrect login ID. It is NOT an incorrect login ID! 
    So, now asking Sean and Andy (or anyone else) for further suggestions... ???  As Andy suggested, many people ask questions here because they have -already- worked through the 'official' recommendations, and have found them to be inadequate.
    Any advice would be appreciated!  TIA.

    That's a proprietary interface.
    Odds are there is no adapter. Ask Sony.

    Hi Heidi,
    Do tou mean it only boors to a blue screnn???
    If 10.7.0 or later...
    Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.
    If that doesn't help Reinstall the OS.

    You can't; there's no Thunderbolt port on a Mac Pro. If you just bought the display, try to swap it for the standard 27" LED display with the mini display port connector (that assumes your Mac Pro is a 3,1 or later, which has a mini display port).

  • How can I get an HP Deskjet 882C to work with Snow Leopard?

    Is there a way to get our HP Deskjet 882C to work with Snow Leopard?  This printer is a workhorse, and even though it is so old, our budget and common sense say not to get rid of it.

    Install the HPIJS package. This is an open source set of drivers for older printers.  HP dropped support for a whole lot of printers when Snow Leopard was developed.  These drivers fill the gap.
    You will need to install three components - Ghostscript, Foomatic RIP and the hpijs package.  They are all on the HPIJS web page.  Once installed, restart your Mac, connect your printer.  You will probably need to go into System Preferences > Print & Fax to select the printer and set it as your default printer.  After that it works great.  And it also works on Lion. 

  • HT4059 I DL an ibook that had audio included.......how can I get the audio as it never DL with purchase?

    I purchased a book through ibook ......it had acompanying audio.  The audio didn't come through.  Do I just 'not get the audio' or is there something I can be doing?

    Thanks. It does seem to indicate that there should be a separate download for the audio tracks. If you have a computer running iTunes, look under the Advanced menu for the "Check for available downloads" command and run that. You might find the track(s) available for downloading there.
    If not, go here:
    http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/
    and follow the instructions to report the issue to the iTunes Store and request assistance.
    Regards.
