    my daughter got me a wireless mouse for xmas, a usb version. you dont get instructions with it but hey i thought simple just plug the usb into my pc and away i go, wrong.

    i plug the usb in and it said something like found drivers etc but i just cant get it to work,

    this is what it says on the header card that it was attached to.

    version - USB

    variable resolution - 20dpi-6400 dpi

    hardware resolution - 800dpi

    technology - optical sensor

    system requirements - windows 2000/me/xp/vista mac OS 8.6 or later

    IT DOES NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WINDOWS 7 maybe this is the problem as i am running windows 7

    any thoughts please ?

    If it works with Vista, it should work with Windows 7. But you need the correct drivers, depending on whether your Windows installation is 32-bit or 64-bit. What is the manufacturer and model for the mouse?

    Besides providing the information that Frank4d requested, check the mouse and the USB receiver for a tiny button that may need to be pressed to activate a connection signal between the two.

    i have 64 bit. the mouse does not say who the manufacturer is, it is a manchester united mouse manufactured and distributed in the uk under licence by pied piper, the other info on the card says the following:

    fits either hand
    27mhz radio frequency design provides free wireless use with comfort
    compact design,reciever stored in the mouse itself
    perfect for lap top users
    pc/mac compatable

    it does have a little button on the bottom which i have pushed but still no joy, the actual USB stick slots into the body of the mouse.

    If it was a Microsoft or Logitech model, it would be labeled on the bottom and would come with a driver software CD and would have an on-line support site.

    It appears to be an off-brand or generic model with no documentation and driver software CD, so I'm unable to assist you further.

    Hopefully, someone who is familiar with that wireless mouse will be able to assist you.

    I found another database for USB devices: http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids According to it, vendor ID 062A is Creative Labs, and then it lists a half dozen device IDs

    Thanks for the link. I didn't know that Creative Labs made mice. I assumed it only made audio devices.
