    Hi, Today i have buy a magic trackpad. I have a macbook c2d white from 2007. I have Snow Leopard 10.6.6.

    Well, after pair the magic trackpad, i only can use it as normal trackpad. Left and right click and all surface move the cursor but i cant use two finger scroll or swipe to zoom photos.

    I go to Preferences panel, Trackdpad and appear the standard configuration of the trackpad, this ->

    but doesnt appear the multitouch preference panel with videos of the gestures like the new macbooks, this ->

    After you paired it did you run software update? I vaguely recall having to run that and get some random trackpad update just to use the trackpad's features.

    From there I installed Better Touch Tool, the tool that Apple should have created all along.

    Hey, you have to remove USB Overdrive from your System>Library>Extensions folder. I just solved this problem yesterday with my new Magic Trackpad.
