Windows 7: Ergonomic Keyboard with bluetooth? & my new Bluetrack mouse

Ergonomic Keyboard with bluetooth? & my new Bluetrack mouse

I've had the Microsoft Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard & Explorer Intellimouse combo for years now.

I absolutely love the combo, & most of all the ergo keyboard, but the transmitter was always a bit shaky & the mouse was the old red style laser.

Now I've upgraded to the new Microsoft Explorer Bluetrack mouse and its on a separate little USB transmitter - is this on bluetooth now?

This new mouse doesnt seem to react like the Intellimouse did and isnt as smooth & it'll take some getting used to.

I've tried installing the new software cd but it doesnt seem to "run" when I close the dvd drawer.

Do I need to uninstall the old Intellimouse software for the comp to see this new cd & install the proper specs for the Explorer Bluetrack? This may help with the sensitivity? (even though I've already adjusted it in the Intellimouse settings)

But I was also wondering if there were any rumors on a new Ergonomic/Natural wireless keyboard with bluetooth & mouse with blue track?

This would I could eliminate one of the transmitters since I have 2 now.

It absolutely has to be a wireless ergonomic keyboard, I hate normal ones.

Well... with those kind devices I never had to uninstall old drivers... but maybe you can give it a shot...
About installer not executing, are those devices compatible with Windows 7? even if not, you can go to "Computer" and then double click the CD icon, that should "force" the launch of the setup.

See ya!!!

Have you tried configuring the new BT dongle as the only BT receiver and syncing the keyboard to it? Should work but I've never tried. To me the two BT dongles are an issue and confusing to the system.

The keyboard isnt bluetooth, its on an RF transmitter I believe.

The new bluetrack mouse is bluetooth however I believe.

Yeah the mouse drivers are fine now, I downloaded the software from microsoft.

But I'm wondering on a bluetooth ergo keyboard that could pair up with my bluetrack mouse.

Anyone have any ideas?
