IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WINDOWS XP USERS:
Updating the Firmware of the Razer Mamba requires that you have a second mouse connected to the system.
During the update the Mamba is put into a mode that allows firmware to be written onto it.
In this mode it is not able to control the windows cursor. Please connect a second mouse to the system before performing this update.

After the update has completed, you can disconnect any other mouse, reconnect your Razer Mamba mouse and use as normal.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISTA 64 BIT USERS:
The drivers required to download firmware data to your Razer Mamba mouse and docking station do not contain a digital signature.This means, before installing the Mamba Firmware Updater, you will need to boot your system with driver signature enforcement disabled.
To do this, you will first need to restart your system and access the “Advanced Boot Options” menu.
You can access this by tapping the F8 key after boot-up has passed the initial information screen.
Once you have successfully entered the “Advanced Boot Options” menu, use the cursor keys and navigate down to the option for “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”, press Enter to boot into Windows.
This will enable all drivers to install correctly.

A: This message indicates that your system does not have a valid installation of .NET Framework 2.0 or above.
Please follow the link in the previous question to complete the required installation of .NET Framework 2.0


Q: My application appears to be unresponsive after I click the update button.
A: When the Mamba Firmware Updater is launched for the first time, it installs drivers which will enable firmware data to be downloaded onto your Razer Mamba. In most cases the application will continue after 1-2 minutes. If it does not respond for an extended time, first try unplugging and re-plugging your Mamba device, otherwise close the updater and restart the Firmware Updater.
Vista 64 bit users: Please refer to note at the top of this page.


Q: When I try to update my Mamba charging dock, it reports that USB device has not installed properly, or device manager reports the Mamba Charging Dock USB Device failed to start (Code 10).
OR
Q: When I try to update my Mamba charging dock, Windows asks to restart my system.
A: Unplugging and re-plugging your Mamba charging dock will, in most cases enable you to complete the update, otherwise, please close and restart the application. You shouldn’t need to update your Mamba mouse again, though you will need to connect it for verification. It is not necessary to restart your system. Please click “No” to ignore this system message.

Windows XP users in particular may experience this as there is an occasional problem when switching the charging dock to USB mode having installed the drivers.


Q: After my Mamba mouse has updated, Windows reports the following error:
A: It is likely in this case that you have attempted to update your Mamba with the power switch (on the underside of the Mamba mouse) set to the ON position. To ensure both your Mamba Mouse and Mamba Charging Dock update correctly with the latest firmware, disconnect your Mamba USB cable, set the switch to the OFF position, connect the USB cable to your Mamba mouse and run the updater again.


Q: Running the Mamba Firmware Updater application causes my Mamba Configurator to exit.
A: We would recommend closing all other software, including the Razer Mamba Configurator before commencing this update. This shall ensure the device is updated correctly. The Mamba Firmware Updater application will close the Mamba Configurator system tray application if it is open.


Q: Is the firmware updater available in other languages?
A: At this time, the Mamba Firmware Updater is only available in English. We expect to release the Updater in other languages within the coming weeks.


Q: Why is there no updater for Windows XP 64 bit?
A: At this time, the Mamba Firmware Updater is not available for Windows XP 64-bit as it has not passed our software quality checks. We shall release it once the software has passed our internal checks.
