    i'm in the same boat sadly, my nice 5 button is only recognized as a 3 button... Really loses some of it's functionality. It's weird though- In Doom3 and such, one of the extra buttons is detected, just not in regular use.

    a simple problem and noone has any suggestions. or noone bothers to post them. this has been a giant waste of my time.
