Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2006 6:28 AM (in response to TelexStar)I too was facing this exact same problem. Somehow though after having installed and used SteerMouse, the problem seem to have disappeared.
It might be a software related issue then rather than hardware (i.e. physical mouse itself).MacBook Pro 2.0Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2006 7:25 AM (in response to CapKapak)I have the same problem and personally, it think it's a hardware problem: when i have it, i just hit the mouse on the surface of my desk (gently) and then it always ends up working.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.8), 15.4 inch, 2.16ghz, 2 gig ram
Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2006 7:38 AM (in response to CapKapak)Thanks for the advice but I don't really fancy buying software to make my £50 mouse work in the first place. I'll download the Steermouse trial and see if this sorts the problem.
Looks like it might be back to the shop for this mouse. How disappointing!MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2006 10:28 AM (in response to TelexStar)I just bought a new Wireless MM and experienced the same problem as well. What I did that seemed to fix it (your mileage may vary, I don't claim that this is the fix at all) was to go into the bluetooth settings and make sure you remove the mouse from the devices tab turn the mouse off and back on, then rediscover the mouse. After I did that my right-click seems to work pretty well now. Hopefully it will stay that way. Good luck...MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2006 7:34 PM (in response to TelexStar)My new MacBook Pro and Wireless MM just arrived Friday and I spent Saturday transferring files from my PB G4 and installing Parallels/WinXP.
My Mighty Mouse worked fine initially, but then the Right Click (Secondary) reverted to Left Click (Primary). I reversed the settings to a "Left-handed" setup, the settings stuck. But the right button would not hold a Secondary setting.
I then paired the PB G4's Wireless Mighty Mouse (that I've had for several months) with the MacBook Pro - same issue surfaced. Both mice work consistently as represented with the PowerBook AND my IOGear bluetooth mouse works perfectly with both the PB and MBP (although the Mouse Preference Pane that comes up for the IOGear mouse is a reduced feature set that does not allow any additional button programning.)
I think it's a Preference Pane code issue. If the others who have posted here have ALSO installed Parallels, then the Parallels tools may be creating conflicts.
