    Does that mouse have a button or something on the bottom? The BT mouse I have has a red button that makes it discoverable.

    Yes, and I've pressed it and tried it 2 ways - cant tell which is on because it is not discoverable in either mode. BT sees my keyboard just fine.

    So what all have you tried to get this mouse working? I did a google search and see that there is software available for getting this mouse to work under OS X.

    A cd of 7.1 for Mac came with it but would not open, then ejected. I d/l version 7.1 for the Mac from the web - installer apparently worked because I saw the Uninstaller. However, the Mac still does not see the MS mouse in Bluetooth. Using the mouse without bells and whistles and it works for basic work. I can get along without all the buttons but I expect things to work as advertised -- this time it did not. Microsoft :-(((
