Hey all, just bought a new mouse (Logitech Ultra-X Optical Mouse) for around $22ish (£15) and am experiencing it 'skipping around' when I use it on either my desk or my mouse-pad. In my annoyance at this i put the mouse on my jeans and started moving it around, strangely it worked flawlessly. So, I took my t-shirt off and put it on my desk, then placed the mouse on top of it and have been using it that way for the past hour or two. What I'm wondering is why the hell it won't run properly on my desk or mouse-mat, and is there some way to 'configure' it to skip less when on those surfaces? And is the problem caused by the glossy surfaces reflecting the laser back in a wierd way?
Sorry for my n00bish questions, its just that I've shied away from optical for a long time......
