    Hi,

    I recently got my new iMac and have installed Windows 7 on it in Bootcamp.

    I have a Magic Mouse which was working perfectly in Mac OS. Then I installed Windows 7 along with the drivers for Windows which can be downloaded through Bootcamp. I was not able to get my Magic Mouse to work. Then I read, that it might help booting into Mac OS, remove the Magic Mouse, then boot back into Windows and add the Magic Mouse from Bluetooth Devices. That worked.

    Now I have booted back into Mac OS and added the mouse again and it's working. Then, if I boot into Windows again then it's not working.

    Does anyone have an idea how to get my Magic Mouse to work in both Mac OS and Windows 7?

    I hope you can help me.

    Well the mouse can only be paired to one device, but my magic mouse works in both Mac and Windows. Did you install the drivers from the MacOS disc or from somewhere else?

    This.

    The Boot Camp Assistant will ask you to provide a USB flash drive or CD to burn drivers onto. It then tells you to insert this at some point after Windows is installed to install these drivers. This will include drivers for the Magic Mouse, amongst many other important things.

    But I did install these. I burned the drivers to a DVD and installed them. Should I reinstall the drivers?

    If you installed the drivers, pair the device in Windows. You've paired it, right?

    I have. But it is as if it can only be paired on one side at a time.
