    I beleive it is a "no-no" to install XP using the mighty mouse. Well, I did that and I cannot get the thing to function, hasn't worked since I installed xp...

    Are there specific drivers to use? Any installation tips?


    Oh...that many reasons I hate windows. But how I love playing video games!

    Dunno about Windows, but when I used the Mighty Mouse with Linux, it worked right out of the box, like any two-button mouse with a wheel.

    I think it should work on XP. I have some people using Apple mouse on XP so it should be any kind of apple mouse. You haven't tried it, have you? :p

    Plug it in. Worked for me. ;)

    edit: just read your post again - are you on a PC or an Apple machine?

    it's always worked on anything i've plugged it in to. Windows installs some drivers and after about 30 seconds the mouse works and it says "your new hardware is ready to use"....

    This is on my macbook pro. It simply will not work....

    Zero functionality. It tries to install it but cant find any drivers. I even tried using generic kensington drivers...no luck.

    The apple mighty mouse CD does not work either,


    IT DOES work on osx, however
