If you moved the rollerbar all the way to the left or right and you’d like to continue moving your cursor, simply force the rollerbar slightly in the intended direction until you hear a gentle click. This activates the end detection and the cursor is free to move anywhere on the screen. Release the rollerbar when the cursor is where you want it.

If you find that your cursor is too often out of the roller bar’s range, your selected cursor speed may be too low.

As of this time none of our RollerMouse products are meant to be compatible with KVM switches. Due to the nature of some KVM switches, you may find that your RollerMouse is in fact compatible; however, the RollerMouse is not designed to be used with a KVM switch.

Most KVM switches must determine if the input device is a keyboard or mouse, which creates a problem when connecting a RollerMouse. Despite this, there may be some KVM switches that are able to recognize devices other than a standard mouse or keyboard.

Please contact us for more details

Depending on where your mouse is plugged in it may cause erratic behavior. Though if you were able to use it in the same environment prior without any problems, then this is less likely the cause. Please plug it directly into the back of the computer for the most effective connection.

Using a KVM switch, docking station, or USB hub can cause conflicts.

Certain programs are also known to cause issues with the RollerMouse such as VMWare or Paradox.

Lastly, other software drivers can sometimes cause issues; specifically, drivers for other pointing devices. If you had any other devices that you were using, make sure that the software has been fully uninstalled.

Try connecting your dongle to the computer, using the USB extension cable that came with your product.

Please verify if you are connecting your dongle to a USB 3.0 (blue port) or USB 2.0 (black port). USB 3.0 ports tend to have a higher frequency of radio interference over USB 2.0. and may cause lagging.

Yes, all wireless keyboards from Contour are secured by encryption.

The communication between the dongle and the wireless product (2,4GHz) is secured by an algorithm called AES 128 bit, which is an industry standard when it comes to encryption on consumer devices.

During the pairing process, a random encryption key is generated and exchanged between the dongle and the wireless device, and that is stored and used afterwards to secure the communication. The pairing process is kept secure by the fact that it happens only upon user request, and it is intentionally very short range which prevents eavesdropping.

Some troubleshooting tips:

·        Make sure the USB cable is connected directly to your computer and not to a hub or docking station.

·        Try re-connecting your RollerMouse to a different USB port or restart the computer.

·        Try connecting your RollerMouse to another computer.

·        Make sure you haven’t downloaded another mouse driver on your computer. It might interfere with your RollerMouse.

·        Try connecting someone else’s RollerMouse to your computer (and vice versa).

Attention Multimedia Controller PRO and Multimedia Controller Xpress users:

MacOS requires authorisation to install drivers for your device. I would recommend uninstalling the driver, reinstalling the driver, then manually open System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy and click the “Allow” button.

If the “Allow” button is not clicked within 30 minutes of installing the driver, the option to allow will disappear and you will have to install the driver again. After allowing driver installation, you will need to restart your Mac.

If you are still experiencing problems, try reinstalling the driver and clicking the “allow” button, then restart your Mac. If that doesn’t resolve the problem, sometimes some further tweaking is needed with Mojave to get the Multimedia Controller driver to work.

Please browse to the “Security & Privacy” section under System Preferences. Within the “Privacy” tab, under Accessibility, you can add apps to control your computer. Try adding the Contour driver under that tab, the feedback from our other customers indicates this generally resolves the issue.

Uninstalling the Multimedia Controller driver may not completely remove all traces of the driver. If none of the above steps work:

·        Check the “User & Groups” “Login Items” and see if there is a “Contour” item listed with a yellow “caution icon” on the right. If so, remove the entry by clicking the “minus” button.

·        Then check the “Security & Privacy” “General Tab” and see if you can find the button to ALLOW the contour driver. If so, click the allow button.

·         Re-install the driver, reboot the computer, and see if this makes any difference.
