    Windows lost mouse extra buttons (Sidewinder X8)


    So, today while gaming I noticed my Sidewinder X8 thumb buttons weren't working anymore. Then I double checked in Windows and they didn't work there either, neither did DPI-buttons or the extra "Game"-button the mouse has.

    I've tried with 2nd Sidewinder X8 I have to make sure it's not an hardware issue.



    Steps taken so far:
    - Unplug & plug mouse again
    - Uninstall and reinstall Mouse & Keyboard Center
    - Manually remove the mouse & drivers from device manager and then reinstall
    - Several reboots etc



    I'm quite confident it has to be Windows-issue and it's for whatever reason treating my mouse as if it has just 2 buttons + wheel(+wheel button)
    Windows Settings still recognizes it's Sidewinder X8, as does Mouse & Keyboard Center

    :)

  2. SIdewinder Mouse NOT recognized in Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center

    The exact file without any "tricks" is IPx64_1033_7.10.344.0.exe and will install "Microsoft IntelliPoint/IntelliType Pro 7.1" in Windows 7 64-bit through Windows 10 Pro 64-bit without doing anything but running the executable and selecting your device
    from the list. Works perfectly! Includes drivers and button setting for 56 different mice ranging from Arc Mouse - Wireless Optical Mouse 5000 (Which includes Sidewinder Mouse, Sidewinder X3, Sidewinder x5, and Sidewinder x8)

  3. Microsoft Sidewinder X8 Mouse New Transceiver Connection Failure

    Hi Marc,

    No problem at all. I will update the news as fast as I can so we can find a fast solution.

    First things first, I tried many variations of uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, unfortunately no effect.

    I need to update you about something, the mouse is 10 years old, which is mine. The transceiver is the new piece which the old one is not working anymore. I tried to apply micro-soldering to solve the charging problem but now there is no connection with
    the old transceiver. What we can do is, we can transfer the pieces from the new transceiver to older so we can try that method also, if you approve.

    Other bad news is, mouse doesn't work on other computers also.

    Only good news is, any computer does recognise Microsoft Sidewinder 2.4 GHZ Transceiver.

    Mouse does charge rechargeable batteries with the new transceiver, but with the old one, there's no connection and charging because of old malfunction and my wrong touchings.

    I also tried to install the old software from CD (original), again, no effect.

    To be honest, the way I need to know here is to how to make software touches to mouse and transceiver frequencies.

    Also, let me give you the details of my mouse and new transceiver P/N codes, maybe you or your colleagues can help me on this case.

    Microsoft Sidewinder X8 Mouse

    CMII ID: 2008DJ3456

    CMII ID: 2008DJ3457

    This is the information that I can provide for now, if there's any extra information I have to provide, just let me know. Also, please notify me if there's any way to change things via using Microsoft tools such as Registry Editor.

    Look forward to your fast response, sir.

    Regards,

    Teo.

    Microsoft Gets Official with the SideWinder X8 BlueTrack Gaming Mouse

The latest SideWinder mouse features an innovative play-and-charge system to ensure a nonstop gaming experience — up to 30 hours of active gaming on a single charge — with no need to stop the game to change batteries. The SideWinder X8 Mouse is a top performer thanks to Microsoft’s new, proprietary BlueTrack Technology that gives this mouse the best frame rate, speed and acceleration on the market and a tracking range from 250 to 4,000 dots per inch (dpi).

    “When conducting our research, we found room for improving on the wireless experience for gamers, especially as it related to perceived delay or lag time of response. The SideWinder X8 Mouse will put those wireless gaming mouse fears to rest,” said Bill Jukes, product marketing manager for Microsoft Hardware. “We designed this mouse to perform to the highest gaming standards — with near-zero latency, uninterrupted gameplay and the world’s most advanced tracking with BlueTrack Technology.”

    Innovation for Gaming Performance
    The SideWinder X8 Mouse is a top-performing wireless gaming mouse, with a combination of BlueTrack Technology tracking that provides the best speeds and feeds available, 2.4GHz wireless technology built for lag-free play, and an easy recharging system that keeps gamers in action.
    • BlueTrack Technology. The world’s most advanced tracking offers next-generation tracking technology for gaming with image processing of 13,000 frames per second, 75g maximum acceleration and 120 inches per second maximum speed.
    • 2.4GHz wireless. The device is built for lag-free play with virtually no latency.
    • Play and charge. Get up to 30 hours of active gaming on a single charge, or use the play-and-charge cable for nonstop action. The winding cord management system offers easy charging — simply unwrap the cord from around the storage box and snap it onto the underside of the mouse.
    Designed for Gaming

    Comfort continues to be one of the main needs of PC gamers, and the SideWinder X8 Mouse features a unique, comfortable design that gamers will appreciate for extended sessions of play. Features include the following:
    • Scroll wheel with tilt. The mouse has better feel and response with detents for precise control.
    • Engineered for speed. The shape was designed for quick, balanced and precise gaming actions.
    • Vertical side buttons. The top and bottom design makes locating side buttons easier and reduces unintentional activation.
    The X8 also offers smart features to enhance the gaming experience, including an LCD screen on the mouse to quickly view dpi settings and macro-recording icons, and a Quick Launch button that provides one-touch access to Microsoft’s PC gaming features.


    Custom Tuning

    • Macro record button. Easily record macros while in game with the dedicated button.

The mouse is available now for pre-sale on Amazon.com and will ship in February when it is released. The SideWinder X8 Mouse will be backed by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft Corp.
