Hi,
is two hours that I'm crazy to run the Magic Mouse on Windows 7!
Let me give you a summary of the situation:
I installed Boot Camp 3.0 from the Snow Leopard DVD and then I upgraded to version 3.1. Windows finds the Magic Mouse, but when I click Connect stays with the wheel that turns but does not connect. Now I'm using my old but good Mighty Mouse with the wire. Sorry for the bad English but I'm using Google Translate.
Thanks and help me!

iMac Intel Late 2006, Mac OS X (10.6.3), With Boot Camp, Windows 7

    Same problem. No fix as yet
  • engrav Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
    well, is working at the moment, as per various web discussions
    went back to Mac OS 10.6.3 and removed the mouse from Bluetooth
    then went back to Boot Camp 3.1 and Win7 and set up the mouse
    then went back to Mac OS and restored the mouse to Mac OS, it works
    then went back to Boot Camp and mouse still works
    strange but it worked
    also in Boot Camp mouse appears to lose connection quickly, but if you click it, it wakes up; I guess part of power management system

    You can change this in Device Manager, can't check details, but something like "allow computer to sleep bluetooth devices to save power"...needs unchecking

    Have you searched this forum. I recently had same problem and found the answer here, but can't remember details.

    Sequence started off with "update driver" from Device Manager. Find driver by "searching on this computer", chosing "Apple", chose Broadcom. Along the way it was necessary to (paradoxically) turn OFF compatible devices only.

    After this when you try to connect with the BT control panel you need to go to the services tab and enable it.

    Also with my and others mice I find that even after connecting OK, the mouse needs waking up with a single click before it will respond to movement, only just after boot up. It would be easy to think it had not connected.

    thank you
    but sequence listed above is still working, no update drivers etc
    and the comment above on power management fixed that

    Same exact problem but with my bluetooth MIGHTY mouse...

    I had the same problem with bluetooth keyboard and mouse (not just magic mouse and the BT keyboard) but now it is fixed. I had been trying using various suggested methods from the forums but I believe the solution is:

    If you are in OS, REMOVE the BT KB and mouse and then restart and boot into Windows (for this action, I believe you need a wired mouse and KB). Once in the Windows,REMOVE all those BT KB and mouse and reconnect them. If working, then quit Windows and boot into OS and reconnect the BT KB and mouse. The trick here is that Windows must write the setting first and if already occupied by the settings from OS, it just can't save the settings at all.

    I'm not sure if this help. I have a Macbook Pro with Magic Mouse in Window 7.
    What I did was when you click on the Bluetooth >> Add a Device, the Magic Mouse will show in the pop up window.

    Do not click "Next", instead right click on the Mouse and select "Properties".
    Under "Services" tab, checked "Drivers for keyboard, mice etc (HID). Then click "Apply". Driver will be installed once is done click "OK"

    Then click "Cancel" on the Add a device windows. The magic mouse should be connected now and shown in the Bluetooth Device list.

    Hope this help, at least it does works for me. Cheers
