    Hi

    First post and simple enough question I guess :)

    Has anyone been able to connect a wireless Singstar PS3 microphone to a Mac? Is it possible?

    I've Googled this of course ... but haven't found anything.

    I need a basic mic and have two of these Singstar ones laying around so it would be great to use them.

    thanks!

    Does it use bluetooth or a usb receiver? If it's bluetooth it should work, usb probably needs the drivers.

    Did you try connecting it? If so what happens?

    Admission time - I'm a bit of a Mac n00b and am still finding my way around OSX.

    The mic works fine, I just wasn't selecting it as the input device. Works fine albeit in mono only but I can live with that.

    I'm used to the Windows style "new hardware added" type prompt when you plug something into USB. I'm using the wireless receiver that came with the game.

    I had to dig around and found it in Apple Icon Top Left > About This Mac > More Info > System Report > Hardware > USB > USB Hub > Wireless mic

    Off topic but is there a quicker way of finding new devices added?

    Hopefully someone else will find this useful :)
