Does anyone know how to properly connect the bluetooth mighty mouse and pro keyboard using the newest bootcamp?

My computer claims that they are in fact connected, but they fail to operate.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

hook up a wired mouse/keyboard and simply re pair the keyboard and mouse and all will be good from that point on.

Bluetooth Mighty Mouse Won't Connect

I am having the same problem.

I setup the Mighty Mouse as a bluetooth device with no passkey, but then Windows asks me for a passkey when the device tries to connect.

If I leave the passkey blank I get "The parameter is incorrect"

How do I "repair" the mouse?

Thanks in advance...

Works with pass key 0000

I got it to work using pass key 0000.

What a pain in the ass that was. They should have some documentation for the BootCamp users SOMEWHERE!

It does indeed work like cr*p. When I tried it, just using the BT keyboard, I had to turn off/on the keyboard to get it working in Windows. Then, the next time I booted, the keyboard was not recognized by the boot sequence, so I was forced into Windows - couldn't hold down alt, C or any other key to select a different boot OS. Luckily I had an USB keyboard handy, or I would have been stuck in Windows forever:)

Go to Control Panel and select "Startup Disk", click on Mac OSX and reboot.;)
