Please help me with my optical mouse

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I just bought an inland u-Scroll mouse. Its a usb optical mouse, very small. It didn't list OS X as a requrement but I had luck with any kind of usb mouse working before. My problem is I cant get the mouse to move. The buttons work but the cursed cursor doesn't. I have usb overdrive and mouse zoom installed. Don't all usb optical mouse's work on os X or at least with overdrive?

Thanks for your time and help.

    Looking at their site, I don't see that they support OS 9, OS X or anything Apple at all.

    Good luck, but it looks like you might be SOL.

    Actually there is a sane standard for USB mice, and it would be odd if that one did not support it. The standard makes it so that you can plug in a whole list of devices and the standard driver will support the basic functionality. On mice this is 3 buttons, positioning, and a scroll wheel. There is also provisions for more buttons, but the standard does not require them. Oh.. and for the record, MacOS X supports 7 buttons natively, but doesn't have any standard actions for more than 2 (so they just go off and die in the software, uncaught).

    My guess is that you have a bad mouse... But you might want to turn off USB overdrive, simply because there is a small chance that it is messing something up.

    yea, this mouse brand sucks bad. This is the second mouse that is bad. The first one's optical light didn't even turn on. This one doesnt work either, I checked it on my bro's pc laptop.
