How to make two way audio work for M7-CD550WS?

I have tested.

Please see pictures attached what I tested.

1. My laptop SONY VGN-CR231E
2. M7-CD080WS
3. Two Mics one links to M7-CD550W, and other links to laptop
4. Two coupler from RadioShack 1/8 (3.5mm) Stereo Female to 1/8 (3.5mm) Stereo Female
5. Two 3-ft (91.cm) Shield Y-Adapter Audio Cable from RadioShack
6. One set of speakers
7. Microseven M7CMS software

You need to link them together, Y-Adapter Audio Cable by using its one of two to link to M7-CD550WS audio in and audio out. I plan to get these cable as one from factory later.
