    I just purchased a Brand New Blue USB Snowflake Mic, and when I plug it into my 2006 Mac Pro running OS X 10.6.5, it won't show up in the Sound System Preferences. I do not know what to do. It says it works with OS X, but I can't get my Mac to see it. Any ideas or help?

    I plugged in my Blue Snowball and it worked immediately with no drivers needed.

    I could see it not working in a bus-powered USB hub, because the hub might not supply enough power.

    Did you plug it directly into the Mac or did you use a hub? I'd try a direct connection. If that doesn't work, try a different port in a self-powered USB hub (a hub powered by an AC adapter).
