    I just bought a new Targus PAWM10U wireless notebook mouse for my PB, and it doesn't seem to work...... The cursor moves very choppy across the screen, as well as very slowly. Is there a fix for this, or is this mouse not compatible with OS X ?

    Thanks :D

    Same problem...

    I just purchased the same wireless mouse, and it has the same problem you just described on my Power Mac G4, iMac 15" LCD, iMac 15" CRT, et all. I used OS 9 (didn't work at all), OS 10.2.8 (worked sometimes, but always delayed and choppy), and OS 10.3.1 & 10.3.2 (worked sometimes, but always delayed and choppy). It seems to be a driver issue.

    Does anyone know if there is a driver for this thing???

    I have a picture in case you're wondering what it looks like...

    I contacted Targus about the mouse

    I DID email Targus but got no answer.

    I called their 877 number and spoke with a fella in India. He told me that the mouse was NOT compatible with the Mac.

    I didn't even get jerky action when I tried it.

    Didn't work at all on OSX 10.2.6

    good luck,
