Hi All - I am a singing enthusiast & recently bought Sony F-V620 microphone so that I could plug it into my computer & play with some Karaoke software. I am able to plug it into my PC directly through the microphone port on the back, however, I can barely hear the sound in my speakers (just 1 pair of regular speakers), and that too, by bringing up the Volume Control & enabling Microphone option. Would such an expensive mic, I would expect to at least get some decent level of sound. The music of the karaoke software file plays just fine. Do I need some special sound card or software? please advise. I am totallly new to the PC Karaoke thing

You need something to boost the sound of the mic (this is normal) like a pre-amp, or maybe something less expensive like a small mixer, or even an effects pedal will usually give you more sound. there's not mush else you can do unless you find a way to bring up sound with your computer, but you'll get a lot of hiss.
