    I'm an avid World of Warcraft player, and a year ago, I purchased the SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Gaming mouse. For a year, I used and loved the device, finding no issue with it. However, it did finally cease to function, and I replaced the mouse with a warranty still in effect. So, here, I have a new mouse, and it's identical to the previous one.

    However, there are issues with this new one.

    The mouse overs a wide selection of buttons, ranging from Standard Mouse Buttons 1-5, and then some. The problem is, though, no matter how I set the program that was coupled with the device, some actions just aren't taking. For instance, though in the program only one button is supposed to behave as Mouse Button 5, there are two others who activate the same functions when pressed. One is supposed to act as Mouse Button 4, and the other is just plain disabled.

    In short, if a mouse fails to take to the setup of the program it comes with, is the device faulty, or is it something with the program?

    Did you reinstall the driver or did you just plug the new mouse in and start playing with it?
