Sorry to dig up an old thread. Guess I have another adapter to throw into the mix. Has anyone tired this one?

You can buy this one here:

I bought it a couple of weeks ago. The piece works with only one of my small toy mouses, but not with any other ones that I have tried. Plus its a bit of a pain to get it connected. It isn't really made to size so I have to use a bit of force to get it in right. But after that it runs like a breaze. Does anyone else have problems with their adapters not staying in right?

I suspect that one is the same basic design as the other USB one i.e works fine with some mice. I have a PEST as well and that is more consistent in operation.

Does your PesT fit in the socket easily?

The Saitek Optical mouse I have works great with that usb mouse adapter.
