Zoom H4n

How do I hook up a mic to my Zoom H4n to record solely from the microphone?

I realize you plug into the XLR cable but I am having trouble figuring out how to set up the Zoom to work this way. I assume the H4 works the same way.

Make sure you're in the correct mode, depending on your needs. For a single external mic, select stereo. I think you need stamina Mode to be off.
Check, if you have a condenser or mic that requires Phantom Power, that you have the correct option set in the Input menu.
Hit one of the buttons under the "Input" section on the left to select the external mic: 1 or 2 depending on which input the cable is plugged into.
Adjust the "Rec Level" rocker switch on the right side of the device.

Note that for some (unknown?) reason, Zoom decided to record to 2 channels regardless of a mono input.
So either: Go to the Menu>Input>Mono Mix option in the menu to spread the single mic across the stereo file/channels, or, after importing to a computer, delete the useless, double-space-wasting, blank channel.
