hey guys. i have the macally bt mini mouse. and its worked perfect up until now. it has the connect button on the bottom, and when u click it, the scroll wheel turns blue, to let u know its trying to connect. well, the blue wont go off, and it wont connect. ive taken the batteries out, recharged them, restarted my computer, tried setting up manually(as oppose to "discoverable"), and tried again. but nothing. as soon as the batteries go in, the scroll wheel goes blue. and it will not connect. any advice would be great. thanks
