Hmm, this post is more suitable for the trading forum if you ask me.

An admin, webmaster or moderator should move it for you.

try CLEANING the mous.
(remove the cap (with the 3 screws) and clean the 'rotaters' where the mouseball sticks against when moving (probably a lot of 'black'/'gray' dust'n dirt on'm) same goes for the little buttons inside the mouse. Or the mechanism where the "finger" buttons are located might be dirty

I Think that is not the problem. I seem that the mouse ball is very old and don't get to the rotators of the mouse.
Shocked!

Are you trying to get rid of either of your mouses? I might be interested in buying one, even if they don't work that great. If you're interested send me an e-mail at monotonerecs(at)hotmail.com

Thanks,
Kevin

If you have a look at HansO site there is a link to adapt a PS/2 mouse to MSX. It looks like you neede to program a PIC chip, but it can be done, and I suspect that PS/2 mice are going to be around for a long time.

Miri Software in Italy also have a ready made interface, although I see no mention of price.

Maybe someone might write some code so that a Standard PC serial mouse counld be used on MSX via a serial port? or maybe the forthcoming Ethernetcard from Sunrise is talking about USB Implementation, that may also have a driver for a mouse.

If you have an interface that uses a standard mouse then there is no need to worry aboout replacement mice for a long time.

PS/2 is legacy hardware... There already are PC's that support only USB mice. So don't count on them being around for 'a long time'.

Quite true - but then USB to PS/2 adaptors are available, so that does not present a great problem.
