iMac mouse issues.

Have an older iMac that had a wireless touch pad go bad.

Having trouble trying to set up a new Mac wireless mouse as it's not being discovered.

Would like to use a wired mouse and was told a PC USB mouse would work.

I plugged in a Dell mouse ,but it's not being recognized.

Do I need a mouse made specifically for a Mac or will any PC mouse do?

>> Have an older iMac
What model / type is that exactly? Did you try a different USB port?

A normal wired mouse should work just fine, you may have to check the scroll direction in mouse settings.
