    Is it compatible with Mac Book Pro?

    I've got one off of my friend and have plugged it into the usb port but it doesn't seem to be working. No red lights or anything. Does this mean the mouse is just broken?? Should think that is most likely to be the problem. I need it to do some design work on Photoshop.

    thanks.

    You need to be more specific... what Pro Mouse?

    I have yet to find a usb mouse which isn't supported by Macs. If there are any special buttons or macros which require a special Windows driver, you might not be able to use them. However, it will still work fine as a regular mouse.

    Most of the mouse's designed for Windows machines (via USB) would work with Macintosh machines- at least perform the basic functions.

    As mentioned by chrisbeebops, let us know what the exact model of the mouse is, and maybe we can confirm it.

    Wow! Remember them? Those are old. ;) :D

    The problem might be the mouse. Or the USB port?
    But if it is the Apple mouse it really should just "work".

    yes, it's compatible.. if it's not lighting up then it's probably broken, either that or your usb port is. Try a different mouse or a flash pen to confirm it's not the port, otherwise just replace the mouse. All usb (mac or not) mice are compatible.
