Hello,

I've just upgraded to Snow Leopard, and the main issue that I'm noticing with the upgrade is that my Mighty Mouse (which came with my Leopard Imac back in 2009) is HIGHLY sensitive to the point of frustration. I compose music in Reason and work in Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop, which requires precision and delicate tracking. My Mighty Mouse moved perfectly with Leopard. It seems that in Snow Leopard (at least with my Mighty Mouse), the tracking is a lot "antsier" when I'm trying to be delicate. It is maddening. Doesn't matter what tracking speed I set it to. The issue is not with long sweeping strokes of the mouse - it is with the slow detailed movements. Why is this!?

I'm wondering what my options are. I can't be the only one experiencing this! Advice? Thanks!

I'm actually now noticing another issue. My mouse tracking will NOT save. I move it to the slowest end of the Tracking bar, and it's slow for a moment. But it always defaults immediately to medium-fast. Why is this?

Go into System Preferences > Universal Access > Mouse and make sure the Enable Access is selected. Keep us posted?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

That's a good trick - Universal Access let me increase the pointer size. Thanks for the tip!
