Connecting my Stackmat to CSTimer

If anyone could give me some advice for this, that'd be great! (I am on Windows, not Mac) So, I connect my SpeedStacks Stackmat to my computer's headphone jack with the correct cable. I am using the secure version of CSTimer, the timer on the screen shows the --:-- symbol, so I know that it's able to connect to the computer. I have changed my timing format in CSTimer to "Stackmat", and I have allowed the microphone to be used on Chrome, and the red dot is showing next to the tab, so I know that the microphone is allowed. When everything is set to go, I look at my stackmat and the red light is just randomly blinking, constantly. I have no idea how to stop it, and I can't even do a solve because the timer is just stopping on it's own with that red light always randomly blinking. Also, the times on my stackmat (which range from 0.02 to 0.xx), are still not even showing up on my times list in CSTimer. I have tried to find videos to help and find other ways of connecting it, but nothing has worked for me so far, so hopefully somebody out there can help! :)

Recently, I'm trying to find a robust solution to connect stackmat to laptop, mobile phone, etc.
Currently, the most convenient and robust way is to use an external USB sound card, since most of the problem is due to the internal sound card of your laptop or mobile phone. However, since there are many kinds of external USB sound card, it is hard for me to verify which of them work as expected.
In mainland china, this sound card works as expected (for both laptop and mobile phone): https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.4.79f8275c7vRjhx&id=520633346880&ns=1&abbucket=4

I asked this in a different thread, but I think I will be able to get more help here. CSTimer was just updated, and for some reason, the way CSTimer connects stackmat has changed. I have the right cables and whatnot, but when I change the 'Entering in Times with' to stackmat, and when I press 'OK', the little microphone thing in the url search bar isn't there. Does anyone know how to fix this? I use Mac btw.
