The product arrived with an instruction manual. I followed the instructions, installed the included software, and then was unable to get the product to work as my PC (Windows 7) did not seem to recognize the device. I tried several USB ports to no avail. I emailed the seller and promptly received an email with different instructions. Although the software version on the installation CD was different from that referenced in the instructions, I was able to install and finally got the device to work as needed. The problem is that there are two programs on the installation CD and one (cassettemate) appears not to function, while the other (audacity) is what is needed. This is not indicated in the instructions that come with the device.Close cassette mate window and open audacity press play in the cassette player and press recording button in audacity program.

    This may - may just help. DO get the LAME file - the mention of it in any manuals seems to imply its useful but not vital - it is vital - it is definitely needed. But that's not all - I have found that after thinking the whole thing still wasn't working, it was. The device just never appears in the device list / drive list when you load up 'computer' from the drive menus. But, once LAME is installed, the whole thing works anyway, whether listed in the drives or not - you press Play on the cassette player; and press 'record' on Audacity. Bingo. One thing though; the headphones need to be used on the cassette player; just using headphones you may have on your computer may and probably won't work. Best of Luck.

Wont puck up wireless. Wireless lught flickering and hard to log in to window 7


Hi

Have you tried this

firstly make sure that the wireless has been enabled
have a look on or around the keyboard there is normally a wireless key with a picture beside it that
looks a little like a small satellite it will be either a push or slide key and sometimes you have to press the FN+the wireless key

then go down to the bottom right of your screen and there should be a little box or something saying wireless connections available or with a red cross through it if you are not connected please hover your mouse over it or click on it

then open that connections box and look for your routers name
then click on that name and go down and click connect
then if it is security enabled it will ask you for the password that you may of set up
or sometimes it will ask for a serial which could be written under the router


good luck hope you get sorted

Keyboard does not type


If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
  • Low batteries
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.

Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
  1. Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
  2. Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.

  3. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

    Red Connect Button
  4. Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.

    Red Connect Button NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
  5. Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
  6. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

    Red Connect Button
  7. Quickly press and release the red connect button on the underside of the keyboard.

  8. You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
  9. Test your keyboard to see if it is working. If the mouse now works but the keyboard still does not, see Knowledge Base article 9144.

I installed a Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000 using a USB connection. Is there a way to check the battery status. The program I installed that came with the Mouse does not have a tab for checking Battery...


Microsoft wireless mice typically put an icon in the system notification tray (right side of the taskbar, next to the clock) showing the mouse's current status. If you hover over this icon, the battery status should be displayed (it may just say either "OK" or "battery low").

Not working


dear,


The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse could be malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.
