  1. There were two variants of the ADB G5431 Mouse as shown in the photo below: The left is the original and the right is a newer version. Not only is the color of the ball different but the size as well. QUESTION: Which of the two is considered better overall (rolling performance, accuracy, durability, etc)?
  2. I recently picked up an Apple IIgs. Everything is working except the mouse. I even tried using the ADB-USB Wombat (which allows you to connect USB mouse and keyboards to an older Apple computer). And the usb mouse did not work either. The ADB keyboard works fine. The USB keyboard works fine (when hooked up with the ADB-USB) I checked in the IIGS Control Panel (loading during startup of the Apple) and the Slot 4 is set to Mouse (was told it needed to be that way). The motherboard is super clean, and the battery is not exploded, its actually working and has todays date on it SO I loaded up zany golf game, and its runs and sounds fine. But the mouse doesnt move anywhere on the screen. I also had a copy of like GEOS 5.xx and the mouse cursor looks like its in the upper left of the menu area on the screen, but it never moves anywhere I tried using 3 different ADB keyboards and 3 different ADB mice, and different combinations of them..and the mouse never works I am fairly new to these apple retro computers. Have you ever seen the mouse not work. And am I supposed to be loading some kind of a mouse driver first? Maybe that is the simple reason it doesnt work. But I was under the impression that the AppleIIGS would just make the mouse work without any drivers???? Thanks for any advice on this. Am hoping I can get this mouse working PS Also, I hooked up a joystick and it worked fine in a game. So its like everything is working except a mouse :-(((

    Recap M0100 mouse?

    I have two Mac Pluses and two M0100 mice. Mac plus #1 works flawlessly in every way (it has a Radius 16 and 68882 and voltages look great). But it has one weird quirk - 100% of the time I plug in Mouse A while it’s running, it spontaneously reboots (obviously I don’t need to do this ever in practice, but it worries me that it happens). Mac plus #2 never does this, and it never happens with Mouse B on either Mac. I thought this might mean I have a low-grade analog board problem to fix eventually with Mac plus #1, but today I decided to pop open my mice. Mouse #1 was made in Japan and I believe is a 1984 vintage (two bottom screws). Mouse #2 is made in the USA and has one bottom screw, which I believe means it’s a slightly later model. Anyway, Mouse #1 (brown board in photo) has two 47uF electrolytic caps inside so I tested them in-circuit with my ESR meter. It didn’t like them much (said “good if under 47uF”, in fact, which sounds like a pretty marginally result for a 47uF cap). Mouse #2 has no electrolytic caps. Anyway so I’m wondering - is it possible I have failing caps and need to recap this mouse? I haven’t heard of anyone recapping a mouse and might feel slightly silly doing it but I don’t see why not. (I hesitate only because it works otherwise and in particular Mac plus #2 seems fine with it.) Visually the caps look OK. Anyway, curious if anyone has seen this problem before and if I’m on the wrong path and should start poking around the analog board instead.
  4. Hi, Am working on a long term restoration project of a Lisa 2/5. This is my first attempt at restoring a Lisa and I have a lot to learn. Fortunately, I have multiple copies of each board and a configuration of boards that work (except for some video adjustments I need to do to the CRT). I have one motherboard which works well EXCEPT does not register the mouse button as being pressed. The mouse pointer moves fine. When you press the button, no action on screen. The mouse itself is fine and works perfect on a 128K Mac. The mouse also works perfect when the motherboard is replaced. Any suggestions on what to look for on the motherboard? I've done one deep clean on the board and have not visually seen any broken traces in the general area of the mouse port. Thanks so much.
  5. I recently acquired an Apple Desktop Mouse II to use with my Powerbook 540c. While the tracking speed with the built-in track pad is fine, the tracking speed with the mouse, even at the highest setting, is painfully slow. I've opened up and cleaned out the mouse innards as best I can and wiped down the mouse ball with rubbing alcohol with little effect. Any advice?

    Looking for Mac Plus KB and mouse

    I am looking for a macintosh plus keyboard and mouse. Don’t care about looks just care if they work. I would prefer to get them in one deal but I am happy to buy them individually.
  7. I'm currently in Pennsylvania right now, and I came across something very worthwhile - I went to a vintage computer store today, but I only got an ADB low-power mouse there. Even though there were Macintosh IIs and Apple II Pluses as far as the eye could see, they weren't in good shape and they were kind of pricey. But that's only a taste of what happened. On our way back to the house, we stopped by an antique store we usually visit on these trips to the state, and I found...(drumroll, please) a boxed Apple IIe, with hardware enhancements, a good supply of cards inside, an Apple IIc mouse, an Apple IIe joystick, a MicroModem IIe expansion card, an Apple IIe numeric keypad and at least 30 different floppies. And guess how much it cost - $15 total! That's right, I found this ~$300 value for just $15! And it's in very good shape, too! Unfortunately, it did not come with a power cable or floppy drive, but I can find those online. Be sure to let me know what you think! More pics can be provided upon request.

    Logitech Mouse in Mac OS 8.6

    I just got a PowerMac G4 (Yikes!) yesterday and I've been busy setting it up with Mac OS 8.6. The problem I'm having is that my Logitech mouse isn't being used to its full potential. The right click functions the same as the left click and the scroll wheel doesn't work at all. I remember years ago I was using a Logitech mouse with an original iMac and everything worked as expected. I think I had to download some software from the Internet for it to work though. Today I can't find that software and I'm getting really frustrated. Does anyone have the software I'm looking for? I've searched Google but couldn't find a link anywhere. Thanks.
