Hi!

I aquired one of these:

And hooked it to my A1200T, there is a great spot on the back of the EZ Z4 Tower where I can put it with minimal modification, but that will come later - first I have to get it working...

I hooked up a M$ USB Mouse and it didn't work at all, the optical light just flashed, I expect the Amiga could not supply enhough Volts.

I grabbed an old PS2 optical mouse from the loft and this works and is lovely and smooth, wow what a difference however button 2 does not work, do I need software to activate button 2? If so what?

Cheers peeps :)

Stevo...

nope, both buttons should just work, are you sure the mouse is OK?

Good call, it was when it went in the loft but was pretty tangled amoungst wires, will check it :Doh:

also check for bent pins, that was up with the A1500, an amiga mouse worked perfect but an usb or ps2 adapter would`t let the mouse go left to right, ok not the same problem but something easy to check

also

I think proper usb mice don`t work properly they have to be ps2/usb mice that is they come with an adapter, not 100% sure on this especialy with that adapter but have read about similar problems
