    So I no functionality except for that of a mouse when I use the track pad, I have a late 2009 27" iMac. Updated all of the software and it still thinks its a mouse. Please help!

    Aloha moneyman118,

    I ordered a Magic Trackpad from the online Apple Store and it just arrived today :D

    I did a Google search for "magic trackpad update" and was able to download the update, named MagicTrackpadMultiTouchUpd1.0.dmg. Do a quick Google search and you should be able to find the software. I was unable to connect my Magic Trackpad via Bluetooth until after I installed the update. After that, however, I saw a new entry in System Preferences, one for the Magic Trackpad. It's really nice - I think you'll really like it.

    I did a software update on my 27" iMac and it downloaded the mousepad update. I then turned on the trackpad and everything shows up like it's suppose to.

    maybe I got lucky?
