I think I have discovered the first thing a Mac totally ignores.
I bought a Logitech Pro Presenter R800 and my MacBook Pro does not know it's there.
This is NG as I purchased it after reading a review that Mac is supported. I also have a G4 running Leopard, but haven't tried it yet on that machine.
I really need it to run on my MacBook Pro.

    According to the Logitech R800 specs page, the device only supports Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7. Searching the web for reviews, I don't find any that mention Mac support -- in fact, one laments that there are (as yet) no Mac drivers available for the device.

    I don't know what to say other than that Logitech makes no official mention of Mac OS X support. If that OS supports the device at all, it should be listed in System Profiler in the USB section. If not, it means the device does not conform to UHCI or EHCI USB protocol standards & the built-in USB host controller driver doesn't know how to exchange data with it.

    I suggest that you contact Logitech support & see if anything helpful results. Otherwise, I would return the device for a refund & look for something similar that supports OS X.
