Okay so I ordered this Hella expensive blue yeti mic and rushed to plug it int9 my pc and than... realized I accidently threw out the cord with the box. So I went out and bought a standard mini USB charging cable and plugged it in. The light went red to show it was online aND than I went to try it out. Checked device manager and... nothing... no sign it recognized ones anything is plugged in. And I tries this with three spperate computers and none of them would recognize it..
It's supposed to be plug and play...

mini USB charging cable


I think most likely if you bought a cable specifically labelled as a "charging" cable, it only has power connections, not USB signal connections. Try a full USB cable.

The PS3 has a wireless controller, so the USB charging cable only passes power to recharge the battery. Get a normal USB cable instead.
