USB Wireless Mouse converter on Amiga 1000
A short blog post today. I purchased this USB to Amiga mouse port adapter, as part of the order with the PiStorm from Amigastore.eu.
That said, it seems to really be intended for use with wireless usb mouse rather than the corded variety. I tried 3 different USB corded mice with it (including one with PS/2 emulation) and none of them worked.
Now we just need a conversion kit to take the Microsoft wireless internals into a standard amiga mouse and cut off the cable to make the mouse fit a little better period-wise...I suppose the battery wouldn't fit in it though...
Close up, showing the USB mouse adapter and the ACA500 which I have installed back in the A1000 after removing it from the Amiga 500 while installing the PiStorm in an earlier blog post.
I tried the USB mouse converter in the Amiga 500, but it doesn't work on boot up with the PiStorm unless I unplug/replug the mouse converter on every boot. With a normal Amiga corded mouse it works fine. So I won't be using it on that.
