As has been pointed out, your mouse is not recognized as such - it's 
only attaching as a generic HID device. You need ums to attach to it if 
you ever want to use it as a mouse.

I'd suggest you look at the VID/PID of your mouse and add that to 
whatever ums uses to decide whether to attach or not.
