Can the Logitech Unifying receiver be used to connect to my old Logitech MX600 mouse?
I don't insisnt on being able to connect the keyboard, just the mouse, because the old cordless receiver is too big and unwieldy, but i can't find anywhere where it says that i can or can't connect the MX600 mouse

Unless a device has the small orange "unifying" logo it is not likely to work with a unifying receiver.
Logitech has pushed out a few devices that will "break the rules", but there is no way of finding out apart from trying it.
You can do a bit of research by consulting the product pages for your devices. A search here will also show if anyone has been here with the same question. Practically every device has produced a query "will it work with a unifying receiver?" The answer is rarely "Yes".
The older the hardware, the lower your chances are of getting it to work with a "universal receiver".
M570, Cordless Trackball | Cordless Trackman Wheel | T650 Touchpad
K800, K360, K340 keyboards
QuickCam Pro 9000 | H600 headset
SetPoint: 6.61.15 | Driver version: 5.60.73 | LWS 2.31
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit & 32-bit | Windows 8.1 Update
If you find a solution to your problem, mark it as "solved". This assists people who are looking for help with their problems.
