Bump! I'm talking about the ball in the track ball mouse. Come on guys! This could be useful. I don't want a perfectly good mouse to stay useless forever.

On my XVI compact mouse it is approximately 2cm.

Thanks. I'm guessing the track  ball mouse has a 7/8 inch ball.

So i finally found a decent replacement. The mouse ball is a non-standard size (around 23mm)

I replaced it with a ball bearing, and it works pretty darn well. Just posting so that people who have the same problem in the future can know what to do
