I have OS 9.2.1.  I have a logitech optical cordless mouse connected to the Mac on a USB card.  The latest Logitech drivers are installed.

This combination works fine.

The problem is that the scroll wheel and the right click mouse button does not work.  I've reinstalled the drivers to no avail.  CUDA has been cleared to no avail.  The mouseware control panel has been set up for global and for individual applications.  No luck.

Anyone have any thoughts on how to get the right click and the scroll wheel to actually work?

Should have no problem which indicates that perhaps there's a hardware problem with the mouse? Have the buttons ever worked? Do you have any other mouse software installed? Have you tried an OS 9 base extension set + the logitech software to rule out an extension conflict?

The mouse works fine.  I have 2 of the same mice.  I also have a logitech corded optical and it exhibits the same problem.

The one connected to the mac currently  was purchased about 3 weeks ago and I have had it running on my PC workstations ever since.  Switching it between the two machines demonstrates that it works on the PC.

The mouse works on the macintosh.  I am  using it now.  It doesn't work with the software to make the right mouse button and the scroll wheel operate as specified.  Otherwise it works fine.

I have no other mouse software loaded.  I have the latest mouse control software, as per my initial post.
