Or you are trying to use the mouse on a reflective surface such as glass. Try it on a matt surface - a piece of card, a book or a traditional mouse mat.

Try moving the wireless receiver further away from the screen (or any other item using power).

Check that there isn`t any detritus on the lens such as fluff. Clean it with a cotton bud. If you can change the channel it`s using by pressing the buttons on the transmitter then the mouse and the keyboard. It could be that they are out of sync.

You should start a new subject of your own Titled "DVD Disc Compatibility" - not many are going to find your post because you are hijacking someone elses topic.
