English is not my first language and i would like to upologize in advance on all miss spells and such.
OMG! this forum and every other gamer's forum i have visited in the last week is swarming with angry MX518 owners!
the "USB Dissconnecting Problem" is so unbeilevablly common that i am supirized Logitch didn't order an Imddiate Recall
of all MX518 units.
I have tried everything!
*Updating Gforce drivers
*All USB ports on my system and 2 other computers
*REINSTALLING WINDOWS !
I am still on warranty the mouse is only 3 months old, and i'm going to try and replace it tomorrow.
but i have already seen posts form ppl who had gotten replacements and even bought a new mouse just to find the problem reacuring, so i don't have my hopes up.
I have to say that i am deeply dissapointed with Logitechs Indiffrense with this Colective Malfunction of this product.
not that it matters because this problem happend on every possible PC specs there is, but here is mine.
Core 2 Duo 7200 2.53GHZ, Geforce 9600GT 512MB, 2GB RAM, Intel chipset G35, Win XP Home SP3
Thank u for reading. sorry it was so long but i am really mad by now
and "Thank You" Logitech for giving a Rat's as*. or should i say a Mouse's as*
Hope u can take the critisizem with out deleting this post.
Solved! Go to Solution.

this has been a very common problem with the MX518 for years(and only with this model). It actually happens to almost every single MX518 mouse manufactured. Logitech are completely aware of that problem but obviously they just don't want to do anything about it. It's sad because since it's optical, it's their best gaming mouse these days. Sure you can get yours replaced but the replacement mouse will most probably end up with the same problem. Maybe it's better to try fixing it yourself. The problem with your mouse is most probably caused by a short in the cord. You can check this by connecting the mouse to your computer ang try wiggling the cord. If the mouse turns on and off while doing that it's clear that it's a short in the cord. You can fix this by doind a little soldering or replacing the broken cord with another one. Good luck!
