Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, but the title pretty much says it all. I have a new Trackman Marble, and the mouse cursor will move quickly without any finger movement on the marble. Very frustrating. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

I have 2 corded optical mice which are both exhibiting the same problem in both WinXP and Win7. Periodically the cursor will jump to the top left corner. When it does this, it also stops responding to movement for a brief time (usually < 1 sec, 2-3 sec at most).
This can be disorienting on the desktop, but when it happens inside a FPS game, your avatar immediately stares straight up and spins around very fast!

Do you have this enabled?

No, not on either machine. I've also tried using both PS/2 port (w/ adapter) and direct USB connection, and that makes no difference. I have a 3rd mouse (different brand) that I'm going to try today.

I don't know if I mentioned earlier, but I did try cleaning the lens on the older mice w/ cotton swab and glass cleaner, but that did not help. I tried a new mouse yesterday, and did not experience any trouble during a full day of use. So I'm convinced the trouble is that the older mice are simply worn out.
Before Logitach, I had a series of MS mice which failed very quicky (about 18 months), and they always failed in the same way: the USB cord became fatigued from repetitive flexing at the place where it enters the mouse body. The Logtich mice lasted much longer (many years), but I'm convinced now that even though I'm careful to route the cord so as to mniimize flexing, they're beginning to experience the same kind of degenerative failure.
Oh well. C'est la vie.
