Try a Skype test call to Echo 123. That way you can test your mike with Skype and see if it works.

My microphone wont work for skype but is ok with other programs. I have tried test calls for several times but it says there's something wrong with microphone.

I have already tried the test call and it does not work. I watch the video on skype for how-to for mac if there is a microphone problem but it does not give me a tool options as on it does for a pc. Skype should improve this problem to make it more friendly towards Mac users...

I'm sure you've already done it but what settings do you have in Skype\Preferences\Audio/Visual? If you say something is there absolutely no registration at all with the blue dots under the microphone setting with built-in microphone (internal) selected?

to Skype\Preferences\Audio and in Microphone, select in-built microphone if using MAC mic or line-in if using external headphones. In my case, it was set as line-in while I was trying to use MAC mic. Hope it gives some clue.

I have the same problem... and I can't find a way of making it work. Did you ever fix yours? How? Did anyone on the Skype community give you the right advice?
