USB->PS/2 adapter for mouse (O2)? - amatecha - 10-10-2018

Is it possible to use a USB->PS/2 adapter for a mouse on an O2?  Finding differing reports online, curious if I have to source a PS/2 mouse or if I can use a trusty adapter Smile

last time I tried it did not work for me, but I might have been using the a faulty adapter, I never really looked too much into it since I always had plenty of ps/2 mice/keyboards

I've been having issues with mine recently. It works fine on my Octane, fine in my Rev C O2 motherboard, but refuses to work in my O2 Rev D motherboard. Only a PS/2 mouse will work on my later rev O2.

Interesting! I'll definitely give it a try and share my findings, at least. Wanted to start a thread on it since I could find very little online, and I'm sure others will be wondering as well over time. Smile
