I need to find out how to re-wire a usb mouse to fit in a ps2 socket
I have all the cables needed, I also know I have to put some resisters somewhere,
I did have to do it about a year ago, I need to do another one, but I cant find the info I had....

Hi,

I could not find such a diagram but did find an adapter for $2.00 at http://www.auctionelf.com/usbtops2ad.html

I cant use one, without buying a USB card, as I only have two USB onboard 1 for DSL connection, the other is my printer.
besides, I have had two adapters, which have both broke, because of **** design ( typical MS product! Tongue )
I`ll have to try to `carefully` dismantle the cable I`m using now and see how I made it.
I have to re wire my mouse, as when I did it last time, I litterally `threw` it together, and it is begining to fail on me Sad
I have an bust MS ps2 mouse, which I have salvaged the cable, but its not a striaght swap, unfortuatley.
I`ll keep looking for the info, but if any one finds it first, please let me know:)

Hi,

I don't understand why you would need a USB card if you use this type of adapter. You would plug your USB mouse into it and then the adapter plugs into your PS2 port.

yes, thats the kind of adapter that came with my mouse,  but it eventually died, due to lack of support from the socket, my mouse cable died too, so now I have a makeshift ps2 plug on the cable instead of a usb plug, but as I made it with out a proper connector, it hasnt lasted very long.
also, I had problems with the original usb mouse, with slow down operation of the mouse..
that is why I dont really want to use my mouse as USB.
