What happens when you select the Logitiech in the 3rd slot in the recorder window - right now it says built in mic.

The logitech headset is not an option in the Camtasia recorder dialog box. It lists all the built in, microphone as an audio source, but not the headset.

The sound input is set to the to the headset. But even when i don't use the headset and just try to use the internal microphone, Camtasia still won't record any audio.

Does it work in Quicktime? (Launch quicktime, then new->Audio recording, there will be a red button with a drop down next to it)

Thanks and just to make sure nothing obvious is being missed, you're not seeing it available in this dropdown:

Yes! I didn't even know that was a dropdown. The little arrows are so low contrast. Thanks!!! I've been trying to figure this out for a month.

Great! Yeah sometimes little things slip past. Happens to all of us.

Now the next question is, with that selected, is it showing audio levels and if you do a quick recording do you hear yourself when you play it back?
