I've noticed that my touchpad only responds to tapping (instead of click) everywhere except for the center of the touchpad. I can click the center, swipe, and scroll down in the center and it works.

Only thing I have that could be causing an issue is the moshi touchpad cover. Anyone else experience this?

What computer are you using? Have you tried to remove the trackpad cover to see if that makes a difference, or try resetting the PRAM (which probably won't do anything, but it is worth a try).
This is the machine thats in my sig. I haven't tried removing the cover yet. I will try to the PRAM reset and see if that does anything.

try reset pram first, if still can't click, call apple.

I think that it could be the touchpad cover. To be honest I don't know why people have those, the glass trackpads don't get worn or really attract oils from your fingers so the covers are pretty superfluous.

The oils from my fingers is why I have issues with the black keyboard, but love the track pad. I'm constantly cleaning and wiping the keyboard after every use, but the trackpad remains unblemished.
