Array microphone incompatible with sound card?

Recently I switched from a SoundBlaster Audigy 4 sound card to an HTO Claro Plus+.
The SoundMAX Superbeam array microphone packaged with my ASUS P5B-E motherboard doesn't register sound anymore (when plugged into the Claro's mic input jack).
I have ensured the mic input settings on all device software including the control panel have been unmuted and turned up.

 I shouldn't need drivers or software for the mic itself, right? Is it something to do with my card's drivers? How can I fix this? Thanks for your time.

I occurred to me that I could simply use onboard audio for the mic seeing as it was packaged with the motherboard, but onboard sound doesn't appear as an option in Sounds and Audio Devices. I forgot to mention, I'm running XP SP2.
