I have an audigy sound card and Windows xp (media center) on a Gateway computer. The mic plugs into the speaker control which plugs into my sound card. I am unable to record through the mic port. Inputting from other devices into the sound card operate fine. Any suggestions?

I don't know what a speaker control is, but I would eliminate it by trying plugging the mic directly into the sound card. Also, look in XP's Control Panel for something like, I forget, "Sound", or find the mixer which might be right there in the taskbar already and be sure that your mic input is not muted/deselected. And, of course, try what r_manic suggests.
