The logitech "adaptors" are nothing more than connector converters. The
mouse itself has to support both usb and ps/2 protocols (& the
converter). Connecting an old ps/2 mouse to a usb port using such a
connector is guaranteed not to work.

Most new retail Logitech mice I've seen have usb->ps/2 converters but the same applies here.
