Razer Mamba TE doesn't work on firefly v2?

JUST got it, sat down, and put my workmouse on it- works great! It's a dingy old thing, probably around 10 bucks. Putting my Razer Mamba TE on it? sometimes it goes fast, sometimes it goes slow. sometimes it doesn't move at all. What am I doing wrong?
Currently just setting my old mousepad ontop for now 😕

It should work well.
The Mamba TE has laser sensor, with z-axis "bug", but the tracking should be OK on this pad.
Clean the sensor lens with some q-tip. You can also calibrate surface through Synapse software.

I found that my Mamba TE worked well on my Firefly V1 hard edition after I calibrated it in Synapse 3. The TE sensor does have a few flaws as posted by user above me however.

But yes majority of the Mamba iterations have their flaws unfortunately so I dont recommend any of them except the one I posted the link to above. Good luck finding one for sale at a cheap price tho, most are being sold for $150 n up on most reseller sites such as eBay and Amazon.

Never had that issue with my Mamba Chroma Wireless and used it on FPS games mostly

Is this Thread still up to date? I bought myself a Firefly V2 on Primeday from Amazon and it arrived today. I plugged it in and all and wanted to use my Mamba TE on it but its just so bad and doesnt really work. I got the Firefly V1 and it works just fine as well as a Razer Scarab but I use it on the go for my laptop and the firefly v1 is a lil bit worn after all these years. Is there a fix or is the firefly v2 just not good for the mamba TE?
