Hello world!
I has an idea!
Okay now I carry both a mighty mouse and a pendrive with me all day at school to bring my own apps and well because a mighty mouse feels better, so i know that usb devices are ment to be daisy chained as in Usb-Usb-Usb-Computer. KNowing this i thought what if i removed to casings of both my mighty mouse and my pendrive i could soter(??) the pendrive to the connection of the usb in the mouse meaning i would have an integrated pendrive in my mouse and then recombobulate my mouse again. Is this going to work or do daisy chains work in another maner

Am i right in thinking you basically want to put the pendrive inside the mouse and connect it up so as they both use the usb cable from the mouse ? If that is the case then i would say no, For a start the pen drive probably wouldnt fit in the mouse, Then you would have one hell of a problem connecting the mouse cable to the pendrive, Why do u want to do this ? Is it because you just dont want to carry the mouse and the pendrive around seperately, you just want one device, i.e, a mouse with integrated flash memory ? Or if you only have one usb port on the pc then u could just buy a 2 port hub.
