I dont think it has something to do with the usb port power... All usb ports are equipped to give 500mA individually when required... it must be that the ipod is disturbing the wireless communication...

The USB ports all share a single power source. It may be that the Ipod being added overloads the connections.

You might want to consider purchasing a USB hub, but make sure you get one with a Power Adapter to boost the current to your devices.

The wireless mouse works but the laser 5000


press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.

I need info on wireless keyboard and mouse


How is a person suppose to know what the specs are saying on the wireless microsoft laser keyboards and mice? I read some of the specs and it says that the battery life is good for so much time. What does theis mean; are they rechargable or are they running off of AA batteries. I am trying to figure out which ones are battery operated only! I am also confused about the connectivity to the computer. I do not want one of the keyboards or mice that require a person to have something plugged into the USB with a cord coming from it. I want a wireless receiver only for connectivity. Please advice between the wireless keyboard 4000, 5000, 6000 and mice 5000, 6000, 7000, & 8000. I may not be purchasing these items in a package they most likely be purchased separately. I also need to know if theis will affect the number of usb hubs being used. Can be emailed at: bmoornd@hotmail.com

Hello,
I found a website that offers the LR6 AA batteries that you were talking about and maybe purchase online. They look like regular AA batteries to me, but I am providing the link for you to view and make your determination. I hope this helps.

If you would not mind doing so could you please rate my help, I would appreciate it. Thanks

Set up of a Microsoft wireless keyboard & mouse


The devices probably came with a USB cable and a receiver, or just a USB equiped receiver, that you need to plug into your computer. Go ahead and plug the cable and receiver into the computer so that your wireless mouse and keyboard has a means to communicate with the computer. Next, Here is a website address where you can download drivers for your mouse and keyboard. You must first choose either mouse or keyboard, then the exact product and model, then the operating system, and finally the language. repeat the process for the other device (mouse or keyboard, whichever you did not choose first). Good Luck! And let me know if there are any further problems.
