I'm using the camera without a battery and I power it trough the adapter by coonecting it to a powerbank.
The camera runs the latest firmware: v1.60.

Well, the camera's USB port seems to work fine with any other task. It gives power to the camera and it trasnfers data succesfully.
The same goes for the adapter regarding power supply.
Also there is some resistance when plugging the microphone in the adapter, so I guess the pins make contact.
What else can I check?

New info about the problem.
I connected the microphone to a HERO2. The microphone works fine, both channels.
I then connected the mic to the adapter and through it to the HERO8. The camera does not record any sound. In other words the internal mic gets deactivated.
Any idea if this is an adapter or a camera issue?

Well, here is how things are going:
I disconnected the external power source and inserted the battery. The GoPro recognized the microphone.
So is it impossible to use it without a battery and with an external mic at the same time or is there a workaround?
