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.
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:
i hope this helps the OP and any others with the same trouble.
*It would be great if anybody could solve this.*
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.
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The Apple Wireless Mouse Update 1.0 is irrelevant and refuses to install anyway (“A newer version of this software already exists”).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.
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.
