    How do you do it? I know the mouse is customizable, but I can't use the CD because I am assuming it's for windows.. so how do i do it?

    You used the term "programming". In the context of this forum, that means writing code, but if are you just wanting to assign functions to the buttons then check out USB Overdrive.

    Tried it, and it didn't work. The software wouldn't see the mouse. Read the support pages from logitech, and etc. Got steermouse and used it to program the revolution. It works great, and I recommend it. I'm still miffed about the support for the revolution for mac.

    Use SteerMouse. I used to use it with my Revolution. Now with my MightyMouse.

    LCC 2.4 or SteerMouse or USB Overdrive are all fine options.

    Dunno what the problem was but Logitech's software works fine with this mouse.

    Yep, I use Logitechs' own software to customise the buttons and it works perfectly.
    I've set it up so that tilting the main wheel cycles through tabs in Safari, and the thumb wheel changes the volume. I've also setup the top search button to hide and show the controller in video player apps.

    Works perfectly, really good software.
