    I just got Lion GM build installed and have reconnected my Magic Mouse after using a different one for a long while. I am having problems.

    It connects but the tracking is speed it rediculous, even at its lowest notch in systems preferences. Also in the menu bar, the connected bluetooth devices it hows up my my mouse, however doesn't display a battery percentage like it used to, or like my apple keyboard does.

    Lastly, I can't scroll with it at all! The toich capabilities don't work.

    Is this a lion issue, or general?

    If anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it, thanks.

    I had this problem because I had forgotten to remove /System/Library/Extensions/USBOverdrive.kext from an old USB Overdrive installation.

    That was it!

    Thanks so much for following up with your solution, Josh! That was my problem, too!

    sudo rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/USBOverdrive.kext
    reboot and sigh of relief.
