I am not sure if I am having a problem with my BLUE Snowball microphone or with my Mac's ability to plug-n-play a USB audio input. So I write in hopes that somebody smart will have encountered a similar problem before.

I have not used my Snowball in a year (when it worked just fine). In the meantime I have not changed computers but I have updated the system as recommended. I'm running 10.4.11 on my iMac Power PC G5. When I plug the Snowball's included USB cable into a port on the back of computer a red light shines on the microphone indicating it is drawing power from USB. It never shows up as a device available for sound input in the Sound system preferences panel. I've tried restarting a number of times with no luck.

Frustrated with my expensive paperweight Snowball...
