So I just picked up a v470 and it worked fine on my mousepad for a few minutes and then stopped. I thought I'd lost my connection but it turns out that was very stable, but it wasn't tracking. When I put it on the instruction fold out it started tracking. Then I put it on my motherboard manual with a glossy cover and it worked there too. Turns out the best surface for it is the anodized black brushed aluminium external hard drive case.
Regardless this is completely inadaquate, is it a defective laser? Discharged batteries in the box that came with the mouse? What can I do to fix it?

Results are in, connecting to an IBM/Lenovo T61 notebook with the V470 produces the same results, the mouse will track on dark color glossy cover books, but not on almost anything else. And I confirmed that the mouse was connected to the T61 because the scroll wheel and mouse buttons would work just fine, but the optical wouldn't move the cursor except over very specific surfaces.
