    I used to have the Logitech driver for my VX Revolution mouse, but uninstalled it at some point. Now I went back to re-install it, and after installation and rebooting, when i go to the logitech control centre it says "no logitech device found." I uninstalled it again, restarted my computer, installed the driver 1 more time, took out my mouse's receiver, restarted my laptop, and the stupid program still doesn't read my mouse.

    What's going on?

    Be very careful installing the Logitech mouse drivers. I bought a VX Nano mouse for my Intel MacBook Pro and got TWO kernel panics within hours after loading the drivers. After a quick Google search, I found out that this isn't uncommon (I had the latest drivers from the Logitech website, BTW). I removed the drivers and loaded "SteerMouse" and everything worked fine.

    I'd recommend skipping the Logitech driver headaches and going straight to SteerMouse (google it - it comes right up).

    Good luck!

    yes I had steermouse, but only the trial version. I'm not going pay $20 on top of the $60 mouse that I bought.

    And I've read a lot about the kernel panics when the driver is installed, which I think is a fixed issue now. BUt I never read anything about kernel panics after uninstallation.

    I boufht a logitech VX a month ago and when I installed the logitech software it also said "no logitech device found". I unistalled this and downloaded the free version of steermouse and was able to program all the buttons with no problems.

    I totally agree on the $20 price of steermouse - I actually returned the VX nano vs. paying ANOTHER $20.

    I'm not sure about the panics being "resolved" - like I said, I used the latest and greatest drivers and experienced my first panics ever. They did, however, stop happening once I removed the logitech stuff (which BTW - installed Application Enhancer which has been known to cause issues...)

    But of course, that's the reason why i get the "no logitech device found" message. I have both steermouse (expired) and the logitech driver installed, and it can only read one of them. And yes, uninstalling steermouse confirms this. Now i hav ethe logitech driver. So far no kernal panics, but i heard they mostly appear when you try to turn your laptop back on from sleep with the mouse.
