Hello all, new convert here.

After about 6 minutes with the Mighty Mouse that was all she wrote. I ended up getting the G5 mouse and then downloaded (and paid for) USB Overdrive. I mapped the buttons, everything worked, then I turned off my computer and went to bed. This morning I notice the mouse settings I had aren't working. I looked in USB Overdrive and everything was still setup the same, except when I clicked a button on my mouse the corresponding button name didn't 'light up' like it did before. I realized that the drop down menu for 'handled devices' didn't have my mouse listed. Before it showed 'USB Gaming Mouse', now nothing. I unplugged my mouse, plugged it back in and it worked fine. However, just to test it, I rebooted, only to have USB Overdrive not see my mouse again until I unplugged it and plugged it back in.
I don't get it.

I have an iMac 2.16, 3GB, OS X 10.5.3; and USB Overdrive 10.4.8.

Thanks in advance,
QUOTE Thanks
