hello,
I have a Targus PAWM10 wireless mouse. However I do not have the receiver for it. The receiver broke when I tried to eject it from my laptop. My question is, can I use a USB flashdrive as the receiver for the mouse? If so, how do I do this and what do I need to do it?

Thanks for the help!,
Jesse

Simple answer - no.

You need a reciever for that mouse.

A USB flash drive is only a storage device.


New wireless mice (mouses?) aren't very expensive, so that's probably the easiest way to go.

Sorry.
