Blue Microphones - Snowball not recognized by Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2010-11-25
I plugged in my USB Blue Snowball microphone today but Windows XP asked for a driver which I do not have because this mic does not come with one. No downloads on the bluemic web-site either. Driver Agent has no driver either which really surprised me. XP recognizes the device but just shows a question mark with an explanation mark on top of that with Blue Snowball beside it under Other devices. The red light on top of the mic comes on when plugged in.
This mic works on a Windows 7 laptop and an IBM M52 machine with XP Pro SP3 on it.
My current machine has a Intel Q6660 with XP Pro SP3.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
