    Capt, Fred,

    I tried this but I don't have an area that says anything about scrolling in this area.

    Linda,

     

    This option is in Lion 10.7.x

    If you're on Snow Leopard 10.6.x  then it's in System Preferences > Mouse

    If you have  an app called "magicpref" un install it. It doesn't work with Lion.

    I had the same problem. I tried everything. I was angry on my stupid mouse. I restarted the computer twice. And there it was the solution. My computer was giving a crash report and I restarted it and my mouse was working again. Before the crash report shows up, i took out the battery's and put it in twice. Much succes and good luck.

     

    And luke I got magicpref and it works perfectly

     

    Regards Menno

    could you solve your problem. I have the same prob and I tried almost everything, even I reinstalled my os, but still my magic mouse recognizes as a normal mouse, the special menue for magic mouse is not appearing for me once I am connecting it.

     

    My os is 10.7.3, but in universal access I do not have scrolling to check.

    best

    Hello

    Very new to iMac having the same problem. In Mouse option in system preferences, clicked on set up bluetooth mouse, even though mouse connected it cannot find the mouse! So no scrolling, just two buttons - I think the same as you have Amir.

    Well, after a lot of fiddling and looking into this no joy. In exasperation, after clicking on the 'setup bluetooth mouse' button, I turned the mouse off for a few seconds then back on again. It found the magic mouse and I was able to set up scrolling. Yippee. Worth a try?

    Anyway, scrolling was too fast, went back to set it up and guess what? To do that I would have to turn the mouse off and on after pressing the "setup bluetooth mouse" button. I'm going to live with the scrolling for now, just in case.

    Good luck

    Amir,  See if you have USBoverdrive installed.  If so, uninstall it and everything will return to normal.

    Thanks Captfred. This totally solved my problem! Universal Access did the trick!

    Software update worked for me.  Now all is fine.

    I have a brand new mac mini and a almost-new magic mouse (no more free applecare unfortunately). The mouse connected fine over bluetooth and my mini recognizes it as a magic mouse. I have checked all the scrolling/swiping boxes in the preferences/mouse screen and also checked that scrolling was enabled under universal access.

     

    I do not have magic prefs, USBOverdrive, or any of their extensions on this computer (so nothing to delete/uninstall as far as I can tell).I also checked for software updates under the apple icon (there are none).

     

    I have restarted my computer several times, paired/unpaired the mouse, switched the mouse on and off, rebooted computer a couple more times and the mouse still will not scroll or swipe...only track and left click.

     

    grrrr....so frustrated! Any ideas??

    Try applying the mouse update for 10.5.8.   It might have been lost with your restore process.
