Re: Logitech pointer does not work on Mac Book

Have you unplugged your USB device after this problem encountered? because not all devices especially external hardwares are compatible with Macintosh that result to conflict to each drivers to function properly.. make sure that USB device is compatible with your MAC book by checking its system properties of your Macintosh just to make sure it wont happen again..

I found my wireless mouse yesterday. A logitech M305. When I plug it into my laptop it either says that it is not recognized by windows, or that the device has malfunctioned.

you might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers
make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot
also click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark !or question mark ? or a red x right you will have options to update driver software,disable,uninstall,scan for hardware changes and properties
in xp
hope this helps

My mouse doesn't work with my mac for some reason. I tried new batteries and i tried putting it on my friend's mac and it worked and i tried switching the USB hub and still it doesnt work. it was working...

Try bypassing the USB hub and plugging the receiver directly into a USB port on the computer. Sometimes devices won't recognize properly if they're going through a hub.

Simply not working, pointer doesn't move at all. It had been working but now doesn't. My wife may have sabotaged it but I don't know how. Mouse lights up and is charged, but doesn't seem to be recognized...

try unplugging and plugging the receiver. (USB).

if its still not working, remove the USB and try to uninstall the driver of the mouse in your computer, go to start, hover your mouse to my computer and right click it, click manage, then device manager, then choose mice and pointing device, (be sure th pick the right one) if its not there, tr checking the universal bus controller part. after that, restart your computer if your not feeling lazy, then plug the usb again, wait for a couple of seconds then it will install the driver of your mous again automatically and it should be working.

if its still not working then its probably broken hehe.

Mouse not recognized as connected.

Hello there:
i have the exact same mouse and i had the same problem, go to device manager and look for the mice and pointing devices and open it up and see if it is listed there if it is and there is no problem showing there then right click on it and select remove the device then comfirm the removal of it. then look at the top where it says view and click on it where it says scan for hardware changes and let the computer find the device and reinstall the device the found new hardware wizzard will pop up in the taskbar once it has found it and it will reinstall the device for you and let you know when it is ready to be used... also if you move the usb sensor to a different port this also works ok?
i hope that these ideas will help you out. if not please let me know and there is more that we can try ok?
best regards

The mouse does not work

Change the batteries. If still a problem, try the mouse on another workstation. If it still doesn't work, it will confirm that the mouse or USB receiver is faulty.

Logitech Marble Mouse driver/setpoint messed up my synaptics touchpad on my laptop...can't fix this!

Hi, Please uninstall any logitech software version present on your OS (if available) - Then please proceed to clean boot. ( ) -> Unplug all the USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) please use corded kbd+mouse if
possible rather than a cordless device. -> Go to device manager -> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them -- -> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation -> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for
new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon ) -> Once reinstalled, clean boot -> Reinstall the software if available and/or plug the hardware when needed. -> Should work.
This TB delete the usb ports " memory " means if a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect
the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If after this the issue persist, then I suggest you to call Logitech support to issue a replacement, hardware
failures are covered by warranty terms

European support:
Thanks and have a nice day ! J -
