  1. Lazer does not work well on reflective surfaces.

    IE glass/ clear laminated material
  2. Might want to check if there has been any firmware updates that you need to download.

    I have a logitech G5 and at first it also had problems with mousemats such as the glass icemat. But logitech released new firmware for it and now it has no probs.

    Just an idea :?
  3. not sure what idi but its working fine now. thanks anyway
  4. As vascular said its probably from being used on a reflective/glossy surface...
  5. not really, its the stabdard optical/led garb that hates the reflective surfaces.

    if you have a true laser mouse, it can wokr on all surfaces. i have tested the following and can say with my logitech that it works on:

    -my 20.1" lcd scren
    -my face and leg :D
    -reflective laminate workstation im sitting at
    -cd-rw reflective surface
    -my desklamp
    -matte black plastic
    -paper/wood
    -antistatic cloth
    -teh antistatic case kingston packages ram in
    -my usb flash drive packaging
    - my pc case

    (all of thses were in my immediate area :D)
