I am having the same exact problem with my new Macbook Air. Just bought the magic mouse and it connects just fine but it only moves and clicks. Does not scroll or anything. All software is up to date and have checked all my settings.Macbook Air 13", Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 6, 2010 11:31 AM (in response to jwfc)same here. bought mine today. downloaded and installed the update for Leopard. the mouse works, but no scroll (in any direction), no swipe, no zoom.
ive got two other Macs to try this out on, but its all the same software, 10.5.8, so im no very hopeful.iMac 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 6, 2010 12:23 PM (in response to baltwo)i read all that. the update is installed. and re-downloaded and now reinstalled. still no scroll. no zoom either.
im packing it off to work in a few and will try it there. im thinking that if i pair the mouse first and then have the OS figure it out and auto update, i might have better luck.
the only differences with the work machine is its a 2.4Ghz iMac with a cleaner and more recent install.iMac 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

i found this article:
which lead me to this thread:
once i removed USBOverdrive with its own unistall utility, the Magic Mouse worked properly. as long as USBOverdrive was installed (even after removing the preference pane from the System Preferences), all i had was a very striped down set of options for the Magic Mouse. now everything is as it should be. (stupid haxie!)
i also found this terminal command to enable momentum scrolling for 10.5.8:

My scrolling and touch gestures completely stopped when I used superduper to upgrade to a better drive and rebooted with that.
-I fixed Permissions
-Looked for all these preference files mentioned in the tread. I had some, didn't have others. Removed them all cleared.
- Cleared P ram, Rebooted several times
None of these fixes has worked and none in the thread have worked. I also have a trackpad (external) and that seems to work fine.G5, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 2X2.8 QUad Core Intel Xeon
Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 8:53 PM (in response to jwfc)I also have a Magic Mouse that does not scroll at all when paired with a fully updated (10.6.6) mid-2009 MacBook Pro.
The mouse is not faulty, because it works fine with an iMac.
The Apple Wireless Mouse Update 1.0 is irrelevant and refuses to install anyway (“A newer version of this software already exists”).
There is definitely no conflict with USB Overdrive or any other mouse driver/manager.
It fails in a stock user account, so there’s nothing janky about my usual account that’s blocking it.
I’m stumped.MacBook Pro mid-2009, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Currently Being ModeratedApr 14, 2011 11:08 AM (in response to jwfc)My magic mouse stopped scrolling and I fixed it by obtaining and running the MagicDriver uninstaller. It can be obtained from the following URL: http://plentycom.jp/en/magicdriver/index.html
I had previously removed what I thought were all of the beta files for this driver since it expired but that resulted in my magic mouse scroll to stop working. Run the uninstaller program and your magic mouse scroll should work after a restart.AIR, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
