Apple Glitch

leave a comment »

For those running Apple Mac OS 10.5.8, there was a security update yesterday (at least in my neck of the woods). After installing the update, and restarting my computer, I found that my beloved Mighty Mouse could no longer be recognized by my MacBook Pro.

This was quite frustrating, since I rely on my mouse quite heavily to swap between workspaces and programs. I did my own research and found that there was a new mouse driver for the Magic Mouse, but was hesitant to install it on my computer.

My solution was to wait until 11pm my time to call Apple Support in the US. After three calls and reboots (I had to stop each call with a reboot because I call over Skype), the final solution was to install this new driver.

It would have been helpful for Apple to include this new driver with the set of updates, since when clicking on “Software Update” it doesn’t list it as required software. If you’re having problems with your mouse, give installing the new mouse driver program and that should clear it right up.
