Have you downloaded and installed the latest MouseMan software from Logitech? Does the wheel work properly when you do the MouseMan setup? Does XP properly recognize the mouse as a wheel mouse?

Ive been on with LOGI tech support and they blame XP. I have the latest drivers ETC. and have reinstalled the mouseware 3 times I m waiting on hold with tech right now THIS SUCKS I am not buying another mouse for BS XP another flawed MS product The OS sees the mouse correctly yet IT WONT load the drivers correctly. From the guy on the phone it sounds as this and other XP related problems are a big issue.
