Space Mouse Plus-serial

I have used my space mouse in Inventor for years and love it. I now also use solidworks 2007. I don't like the fact that it automaticly rotates around the origin, how frustrating! In inventor it seems to always rotate around the center of graphics window. Why can't you set it up this way in sw??? I am spending alot of time zoomig in and out with my scroll wheel when I have a 3d mouse, doesn't make sense to me.

Also when your mouse(regular mouse that is) leaves the graphics area, the 3d mouse also leaves the graphics area. Not to sound like a broken record BUT, in inventor the 3d mouse always controls the graphics area no matter where your regular mouse is. I like to rotate my model when I am searching through the browser with my mouse. Is there a way to make the 3d mouse stay in the graphics window?

I can program my buttons to work fine but, it never remembers them for the next sw session.

This has got to be a driver issue since everything works GREAT in inventor.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
