Why does my microphone work with my dslr camera and not with my laptop? Even though it is a desktop microphone?
My desktop microphone is by A4TECH and when I use it on m camera it works, but when I use it with my laptop (Windows voice recorder), It doesn't. I'm aware of the On and Off button.
I used another microphone on my laptop and it worked, but this doesn't.
Why does this happen?

are you sure you are plugging it in to the right port? some laptops only have a headphone port, as the webcam already has a mic.
some laptops have one port for both headphone & mic, called a headset port. you need a headset, not a mic, for such a port.
also, have you checked your recording options on the laptop? you have to go in there and select what device to use for recording AFTER plugging it in.

is it stereo or mono input on the laptop or camera
they aren't always interchangeable
