middle mouse will not rotate or pan

Hi,

I am on the verge of giving up on blender.
I have been at this for day.
I have read all sorts of articles, so I KNOW that other people have had problems with the middle mouse button.

I am using Windows 7 on a PC
I have a Logitech Mouse M305

I am able to use the middle wheel to zoom in and out. The middle wheel does work.

In other programs, the mouse works.

But in blender, I am unable to use the middle wheel and either SHIFT or Control to rotate or pan.

I am unable to rotate or pan.

I have read so many article and I know others have had this problem.

Please, could someone tell me what is going on… or help me fix this.

Yes rolling the mouse wheel seems to work since you can zoom in/out but are you shure that the middle mouse “Button” works?

eg try it in Firefox: dont rotate the mousewheel ,just push it and you can pan up and down. (i use win7 with firefox 14.0.1)

OMG! Thank you thank you thank you.
It just never occurred to me. I feel like a total idiot.
That was it.
I just tested with another mouse identical to mine.
THANK YOU!
