    How does your MX 500 crash your computer? My MX 700's perfect.

    every morning i go to use the scroll wheel to look through email and i have to do a warm bootbecause my entire computer freezes. it used to do it a few times aday, now it's only happening once a day

    Woah! Those look nice. I just might have to splurge and pick one of those mice up. Price isn't too bad either... considering an Apple mouse is $60!!!

    Paul, i tried all that stuff, still have the problems. i might have to wipe my drive...i don't know.



    i think i read that there are problems with logitech drivers and Jaguar. they haven't updated their drives for a long time, they really need to

    I have one of those MacMice, and I have to say that for me it just doesn't work. The rocking motion never felt good or natural in any way.

    I would try getting rid of the Logitech Control Center and try using USB Overdrive to see if that works.

    Nope, the Logitech Control Center works fine for me. I used to use USB Overdrive and it worked great too.

    Check with Logitech.

    I see they have an updated driver supporting 10.1.2 - 10.2.4 (posted 03/14/2003).

    Try it again, worth a shot. Or return the mouse under warranty.

    For a little enjoyable reading on the person behind MacMice (and MacTable.com, and......), check out these reader reports at MacInTouch. (MacMice portion is near the bottom, but read it all)





    Interesting stuff.
