iMac 2019 and MAC OS Catalina Synapse does not detect the razer deathadder elite mouse after a system reboot. To detect the mouse, I have to unplug/plug USB after every system reboot.

Do you have the same problem?

Razer dont give a toss about mac support its dire, and as per normal they ignore any posts asking about it on here and on facebook - Razer products look cool but their support is lacking big time, they need to wake and fecking listen
RAZER, This is just great BS!!! No software support for my Viper Ultimate for iOS. Essentially we are buying a product, which doesn't have all the features it claims to have. This is a scam! I'm going to ask for a refund.
I use a razer viper mini and even after doing this it still doesn't work...
September 11th, 2020 and still no support on Catalina 10.15.4.

Just spent $130 on the Deathadder v2 and Goliathus Extended Chroma. Neither showing up in Synapse 2. smh....

Very dissappointing that you guys have Mac OSX support on your boxes for these products but no stable interface to actually support them. Will be returning until there is proper support.
pls help my razer deathadder v2 mini is not detected and i had to use parraleles desktop to actually use the rgb light system
C'mon just make it so synapse 3 is supported on mac not that hard just please please I can't afford another windows computer pls pls pls
I just got myself Razer Deathadder Essential. It works on my Macbook and i wanted to increase the sensitivity. From what i'm reading, Synapse still doesn't work on MacOS? Any other way to change the sensitivity? Thanks in advance!

Same issue for me... Can't change the sensitivity. Please let me know if you find the fix. Thanks!
We have a Razer Cynosa Chrome...never gets detected on our Mac's reboot. I get the impression that Razer is best avoided for OSX. Will not be buying any more Razer devices.
Razor deathhadder sucks ! I can’t connect it with my Mac high Sierra !!! Nothing detected ... I can’t chang my color !!! Green is boring !!!! Help
Any help how to connect to high Sierra ? Mac ? No response damn it ! Cheat my money !!!!
Razer, hire a OSX developer and get your shit together. No OSX support since OSX 10.14.

I suspect that the Mac market is not a big enough slice of the pie for Razer. I expect we're not really the 'gamer' crowd that they are aiming the brand at.

I have a Logitech G810, with per key lighting. I enjoy using it on my Mac. I often have to get up and work at night, and the programmable lighting enables me to set a dull red light that won't bother my family but that I can easily see in the dark of night. Being able to set the keys to glow a little brighter as they're pressed gives me a nice little breadcrumb trail, whereby I can glance down and see what I've done - it's hard to describe why, but I find it very handy. I haven't had to tweak the settings since I installed it back in mid-2017 - it just works. The software updates with minimal fuss, and the keyboard continues to display the lighting as I've programmed it to.

So, I thought I'd get something similar for our second Mac. Enter the Razer Chroma Cynosa. After a bit of research I determined that it should be able to do something like the Logitech (even on Mac), and it was on discount when I was looking. It can, after a fashion, do the same as the Logitech Orion line - that is, if you don't mind unplugging it every time the Mac boots up or wakes up. Total PITA. Shame really, as it's otherwise a nice feeling keyboard. After trawling various forums I've realised that it probably won't be fixed any time soon, and I'd best grab another Orion next time they're on sale.
Its unbelievable that some dude on the net can do it, see the Fruityrazor driver on GitHub, and Razor just does nothing because the 'fanbase' is too small. To bad for those who have a dualboot or would like to use there gear on OSX. Just let them rot, the packaging never sayed that we support OSX.
You could just bring out a basic driver so at least we can use the stuf we payed you for.
I'm back to Logitech! Sorry, but I changed my logitech mouse for a Razer, I have dual boot on mac, under windows everything works fine, but on Mac os, that's another story ... I will return the Razer and buy another Logitech ... it seems misleading and false to say that it is compatible with Mac, if it works, but any other $ 10 mouse !!!!

Same problem here - no matter how many times I plug and unplug Synapse for Mac does not detect the mouse. Same system.

Me too

Same issue here on MacOS big sur + apple silicon M1 on macbook air.
same thing here
I am with the same problem on macOS Big Sur. I have installed Synapse 2 and the program initially recognizes my mouse Deathadder Chroma. Unfortunately, minutes latter Synapse 2 does not recognize anymore. Do I need to downgrade my operational system to the macOS Mojave (10.14)?
I came across this forum on my search for a solution for the named problem and found it somewhere else xD

I tried to use my PS3 controller as a PS4 controller and for that I needed to turn off System Integrity.
After that I realised, that Razer Synapse detected my deathadder expert again. And as soon as I turned that feature on Razer couldn't find the mouse any more.

Here is the instructions on how to turn that off

Hope it helps, but I am most certainly going buy an other mouse ...

i have the razor viper mini and when i use the synapse 2 app it says please connect a razor synasnpe enabled device
Here on Big Sur and the m1, haven't messed around much, but its not showing up. My mouse sensitivity keeps changing and was hoping Synapsis would help 😕
same thing here

DO NOT BUY RAZER FOR MAC!
