so I have this cool mousepad, ( I really like the old Mickey Mouse ), but sadly my Mighty Mouse goes nuts with it… which sucks cause I am not going to replace my Mighty Mouse and would like not to have to replace the mousepad, but they just don't go together, any suggestion to improve this mess?, thanks.

I think it's because your mouse pad has red areas on it. You'll have to pick whether you want to replace your mouse with a laser one (superior tracking to optical mice and doesn't care about the color of the surface) or get a new mouse pad. Another (albeit somewhat silly) option is to get a ball mouse, since those have no tracking issues at all, on any hard surface. They'll even work on glass, something even laser mice can't do!

Thanks Luca, that was fast. I still have two or three ball mice, those that came with the original iMac, the B&W G3… Well thanks for pointing the red thing issue… I have 'rotated' the mousepad just to see if the contact surface being Mickey's face and the blue region maybe the Mighty doesn't get mad.

If needing a laser mouse is an issue, just pick up the wireless Mighty Mouse.
