    The scroll ball will only work if you scroll up, not down. Anyone else have this problem?

    The mouse sucks. Try blowing some compressed air into the ball and that should solve your problem.

    My brother just told me about this, it's connected to his imac.

    I'll try blowing it out with air and see if that works.

    compressed air, or wet a cotten t shirt and clean it real well.

    if all else fails, take mouse apart and clean it out, thats what i had to do after about a year, its like new again.

    i went into the apple store and they gave me some cloth to rub on it whenever it starts doing that.

    works every time. :dunno:

    Here's what I don't get. Apple has a lock on the best touch-sensitive surfaces on the market, and they put a mechanical trackball on the top of their amazing new mouse?? Stop being a douchebag (Apple, not you) and put a fucking mini-touchpad on the damn thing.

    I actually like my mighty mouse except when I gotta clean out the trackball, which is not terribly often :/
