    I'm trying to use a Blue Snowball USB microphone to record in Garage Band (run on Mac OSX Snow Leopard). However, Garageband is not recognizing the Snowball when I go to Preferences. In addition my mac is not recognizing the snowball when I go under sound within system preferences. The power light is illuminated on the Snowball. I tried the Blue on my friend's mac computer and it also did not recognize the mic. Can someone help me?

    A few possibilities:

    1) Is it apple compatible?
    2) Have you tried it in another UBS port?
    3) Are the USB ports working?

    What computer does your mate have?

    1) Yes, the Snowball is supposed to work awesome with Garage Band and macs . they even advertise it
    2) Yes, I tried both ports
    3) Well, every other device I plug into my USB ports (flash drives, etc) works

    My friend had a mac book, but not pro

    still no luck :/
