Now my mouse indeed does seem to work .
Quite weird, ( so often, it seems, in Amiga world, that is)
but I noticed the physical connection to the mouse port is quite tight fit, and guess it needs to be secured very tightly ( in the mouse " adapter" part, there are some protraction that should be cut off ( if you ask me). And screw holes without screws on them offer no help ( comparing to my old Mroocheck adapter, which has screws ( size ?)).
I ' m planning to change my psu in the near future, just in case. Hopefully my new Amigakit optical mouse will work ok in future..

My new mouse still works, but I didn't get the driver disk/ program from Amigakit.com; even after requesting it second time via email. I didn' t got any answers either. And the download link didn' t work.
If someone could give working link, or upload the Akit optical classic mouse driver( for scrollwheel), I would be happy.

Hello,
Even a late response for macce2 is better than no response!
The AmigaKit Mouse Utility Disk software for the Classic Amiga Optical Laser Scroll mouse can be downloaded at this web address:

Will the scrollwheel work with native OS3.2 driver, without additional AmigaKit software?

I would expect that you'll still need the actual wheel driver, but won't need FreeWheel any more.

Good question.

Also, it appears that no online store is currently selling an Amiga scroll wheel mouse.

That's indeed the case.Freewheel does have a few nice features that OS 3.2 doesn't though.

Maybe it's time for FreeWheel Lite, then, removing the gadget scroll functions but keeping click-and-roll window depth arrange, mouse scaling, etc.
