USB Microphone

I'm currently using a Blue Yeti USB Microphone but cannot seem to get Ableton to recognize it.  I plug the microphone, turn on Ableton, click Monitor IN, ARM it, and I've tried channels: 1, 2, and 1/2. 

I've used a 1/8 jack microphone and have been able to record my voice fine, but do understand what's happening with the USB Mic. 

Is anyone else using USB microphones?  Please explain what the problem might be.

    it belongs to the asio driver. maybe the mic has it's own soudcard/or using the onboard card.

    in my case for example the tbone usb mic only runs on the mme driver with the m-audio delta 1010lt i am using

    Check if the correct drivers are installed, and make sure you adjust the audio in/out settings in the preferences.
