Question about Razer Copperhead RZ01-050100-R1M1 Mouse

1 Answer

Copperhead working, but not detected

I have a strange problem, the mouse works perfectly, but it's not detected by the Razer Configurator, so I can't adjust it. I tried to solve the problem with the update drivers, but it stopped working, so I rolled the driver back trough the device manager. Uninstalling the drivers and installing again (with cd and through update setup) failed as well; when it starts detecting for the mouse in setup, detection fails. Any help would be welcome.

    I have exactly the same problem on my Vista Ultimate. The mouse is perfect and all the profiles can be used with the little button underneath, but no USB is detected!

    I have windows vista ultimate and my razor copperhead fails to be detected during computer start up and with the utilities that came with the mouse. Otherwise the mouse works fine but I cannot set the profiles

    i have exactly the same problem, seems to be a vista issue. On my XP-system i've never had such difficulties to run the configurator.

    Ecaxtly the same problem. Rather annoying as I'm new to razer mice and thought they were good.

  • Anonymous Apr 10, 2009

    I have the exact same thing. But also it is really annoying that I have to unplug and replug the mouse just to get it to work when I boot up my computer. (windows vista ultimate)

    Config doesn't detect that the mouse is plugged into a USB port, even though the mouse functions like a basic mouse.

  • UncleJaS Apr 27, 2009

    i heard its vista problem with razer i aren't sure if its true
    as for now

    mouse runs as normal mouse
    but when i try to config it it fails!

    razer's software/firmware side really, REALLY sucks, doesn't it?

    this makes most games unplayable, no dpi control or anything.

    please fix this razer, youve got such a good reputation already.

Copperhead cursor won't move when i move the mouse

this is because the laser light in the mouse had gone bad...all that you can do is to replace that with a new one... or buy a new mouse...

My scroll isnt working on my razer copperhead, any ideas?

Just had the same problem with my copperhead... firstly go to url below to show you how to open up the copperhead (only do this if it's out of warranty!! which is two years if you have your purchase recipt) . Once you have got the top off look at the front where the wheel attaches you can pull the wheel out of the circular thing on the left then find some thin paper I used some laser receipt paper (probably gonna wear out but will find something better in meantime) cover the hole with a very small square of whatever thin material you have chosen then push the axle of the wheel back in... this tightens the hole back up allowing the clicking feel to come back and the scroll wheel to work again.
Ultimately the problem is wear and tear with the hole for the axle or the shape of the axle end wearing down.

My copperhead Razer mouse has started double clicking for one

This double-clicking can be due to a worn out micro-switch in your mouse. If you are well -verse with repairing such gadgets, you can go ahead and replace this switch yourself or refer it to a qualified technician

Hmm...I managed to solve the problem of mouse "breaking" while playing counter strike..Its a lil technical...

1. Right Click My Computer -> Properties
2. Choose 'Hardware' tab and then 'Device Manager'
3. You should see a Yellow exclamation mark on 'Razer Copperhead USB mouse' under 'Human Interface devices'
4. Right click -> properties
I do not exactly remember the wordings of the prompts that appear after this..

5. Click on something which says "install / update driver"
6. Choose the 1st option which has something missing in one of the columns..
7. Unzip downloaded driver files on your desktop
8. Choose logical options from here...
9. At some point it will ask for "Razerlow.sys" file...
10. Click browse and go to C:\Windows\system32\ will find it there...
11. Choose logical options from here and your "breaking" problem will be solved...

This does not solve the "No mouse detected" message in configurator...but atleast you can play your favorite game :-)

Razer Copperhead mouse problem

Check the BIOS settings on your computer: is it set to boot from USB drive?  that may be the problem.

Razer copperhead problem

I have something like you've all described with mine occasionally, normally, turning the mouse over and rubbing the laser surround with my finger vigorously is enough to clean off the crud that seems to be causing the problem..
I've never had any software problems or anything with mine..

Detected before, but not after. Help me please,

Go to device manager and uninstall everything under the USB heading and restart your computer. This should reinstall all the drivers and hopefully reinstall your mouse. You may need to rerun the driver you downloaded for the mouse afterwards.

My next suggestion your be to try the mouse on another computer to make sure it is not defective.
