SOURCE: I've got a new Blue

I had the same problem with my PC and went to http://www.asio4all.com/ where I downloaded and installed the driver and it worked!! I found the site by reading this FAQ (see below) at Blue under Snowball.
(But I still have the same problem with my MAC).

"If you should experience any problems getting the program to recognize the mic, Adobe recommends the following: If the device does not allow you to record, then your microphone is not being detected as a valid input device in Premiere Elements. You can use an open source program called ASIO4ALL, which is a device driver that essentially wraps existing WDM devices, like USB microphones, as ASIO-compatible sound devices. Use the following steps to utilize this tool:

  1. Quit Premiere Elements.
  2. Visit the following web page and download the latest available version of ASIO4ALL: http://www.asio4all.com/
  3. Install the software, and restart the system if asked to do so by the installer.
  4. Make certain that your microphone is plugged in.
  5. Launch Premiere Elements. Go to the 'Edit->Preferences..>Audio Hardware' menu option. For the Default Device, choose the ASIO4ALL option. Click the ASIO Settings button, then select your microphone from the list of devices, click Exit, and then click OK on the Preferences dialog. Close and then restart Premiere Elements."

There could be a few possibilities, they are:

* Your driver is corrupt, not recognizable or compatible
* Your hardware or device malfunction
Assuming that your device is in good condition and your driver is compatible with Windows. What's next? try the following solutions:
Method 1 - Unplug your USB device, restart your computer wait for 5 minutes, plug in your USB device again. This enables your motherboard to clear all of its cache.
Method 2 - Uninstall and Reinstall your driver
Method 3 - Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware.
Go to 'Start' -> 'Run' -> Type 'devmgmt.msc' (step 2) and then click 'Ok'.
Select 'Action' Menu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. Windows will perform a quick registry scan for any new hardware changes. IF it still doesn't work, try this:

* Test the hardware on another computer, if it works, then it could be your Windows. If it doesn't, try it on another different computer. If the USB device does not work again, it could be hardware malfunction. See your dealer if it is a new purchase.
* Obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP, it could be a bug.
* Shut down your computer and unplug your computer from the power supply, allow the motherboard to clear its cache and memory, restart and plug in your USB.

The serial number should be on the box. If you don't have the box, it will be located somewhere on the circuit board inside the mic.


Hope that helps!

My mac is not recognizing Bluemic


Try flipping the connection at the back of the mic. If you have it hooked up upside down, the light will come on, but the mic will not be recognized either in your recording software or in system settings.

There doesn't seem to be any indicator on the cord as to which way is up. I marked mine with a marker. Problem solved!

I got a blue snowball microphone and had 2 problems. On XP, I can get it recognized and record stuff (I use Acid Pro) but while I am recording (with headphones) I dont hear anything in the head phones....


Thanks for purchasing the Snowball! The problem doesn't look directly related to the mic (as it's purely USB) and monitoring is dependent on the capabilities of the recording software being used. For direct monitoring, we recommend GarageBand and Audacity.

It sounds to me like your bulb has burned out. Look behind your TV for where the bulb housing is and pull the bulb out to check if it's burned out or not. You'll know when you look at it if it's toast.

Make sure the headpiece is charged. Turn the headpiece off by pressing the little black button on top of the earpiece and holding for about 5 seconds. Turn the earpiece back on again the same way. You should have a slow flashing blue light on the mic boom. The base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.
If this doesn't work you may need to manually pair the earpiece to the base by pressing and holding the Listen Volume Adjust + Button and headset Call Control Button on the earpiece until the light on the mic boom flashes red and blue repeatedly. As above, the base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.
