Greetings all! I purchased a retail version of Copy Commander 9.0 today. Upon attempting to boot from the disc to virtually move my old hard drive to my new one, I received the screen shown on page 11 of the Copy COmmander manual. However, when I went to move the cursor to the appropriate selection, my mouse would not move. Further, tabbing or pressing any of the indicated hot keys did not result in success.
I tried a second plug and play mouse to now avail. Am I required to use an analog mouse for this procedure? If not, do you know why my version is not allowing me to choose a Copy Commander function? I wasn't sure if anyone here had used this software or not but I thought i would give it a shot. I have an email into their tech support too..... Thx, :assimilate:
What mouse, was the first one you tried?
Is Legacy USB Devices enabled, or set to auto, in your BIOS? Try settings it to Enabled, or Disabled.
Do you have a PS/2 mouse?
Since it is a Bootable CD, I am not suprised that there is limited mouse support.

sounds like a need for a cheapo PS/2 mouse available any at pc store
Thinking about it.
Hi Guys, Ya'll rock! I went into my BIOS and sure enough the USB was disabled. I enabled it and booted from Copy Commander. My mouse now works like a charm. In the mean, Copy Commander emailed me back, stating that a USB mouse wouldn't work with their product. Gaming Forums Strikes Again!!! WooHoo!!! :moon: to "professional tech support". Thanks again!!!
USB Mice are not supported.
Unfortunately they didn't suggest that newer BIOSes have a compatibility mode. Which is what you enabled.
It will now treat your USB mouse as a PS/2 mouse.
BTW, I am a Professional. I work for a local PC Service shop, and not one of those nationwide brands. Trust us, we usually know what we are talking about. :nodding:
