My suggestion is that you pony up the $20, or less, and buy a real USB mouse for your iMac G5. What happened to the USB mouse (Mighty Mouse) that came with it?
If you did not get the mighty mouse with your iMac, and are using the OLD PS/2 mouse because it has two buttons, my first suggestion still applies.
Most mouse devices are USB 1.0 as there is no requirement for the extra speed that USB 2.0 claims.
Unless this legacy mouse has sentimental value, ditch it and get a real USB mouse.
Hi, I recentely got a mouse that probably hasn't got mac drivers by default but it probably doesn't relate to this particular problem. This is a mouse from my old aunt and it's got a ps2 connection. I bought a ps2/usb adaptor recentely to connect it to my imac g5 (without isight) and as you may know it's got USB 2 ports. The thing is, this mouse looks old enough to be USB 1.0. Anyways, sometimes when I use the mouse, the cursor freezes on the screen for a while. A way to stop this is to pick the mouse up off the desk and wait for the optical sensor to dim. When this happens, the cursor can move again, is there any way I can prevent or stop this?
