Why can't the Microphone plug fit?


i've been using a desktop mic for recording and i finally decided to get a handheld one today at radioshack.

it's a dynamic one with a 6.35mm /1/4" in plug.

i tried to find a place on the drive(i think that's what it's called where all the wires go) that would let the plug fit.

but some are just too small, and some are just totally different.

i don't think i have any adapters, at this moment, but i want to ask if my computer:

hewlett packard comp.

model: a6238x

processor: intel (r) core(tm) 2 duo CPU e4500 @ 2.20 GHz 2.20 GHz

System type: 32-bit operating system

so ya, please do answer=DD

    You need to go back to radioshack and get an adapter that goes to 3.5mm.That's the size that you need to plug it into where you say it's too small.
