    I read that Macbook Pros are compatible with any mouse and not just mouse from Apple but it doesn't seem to be recognising it. I cannot move the cursor with it but I know it is giving power to the mouse as it lights up. Is there anything specific I have to do to get it to work?

    Oh damn I threw away the box and can't remember. Is there anyway I can check devices like I can do in windows?

    Well I can see it listed as a USB OPTICAL MOUSE and the underside of my mouse doesn't say anything. Are there any such things as generic drivers on a Mac or something?
