I'm not using the two buttons on the side of my mouse, and would like to bind them to the previous/next song commands like the ones on my keyboard.

It's a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 and I've downloaded the software for it, but don't see any default commands that look like what I want.

It allows binding to a macro, but I don't know what I'd have to put in the program either.

You can compile an AutoHotkey script for each action and then assign the resulting EXE files to the buttons using the mouse driver software.

For the Next media key, compile:

#SingleInstance, Force
#NoTrayIcon
SendInput, {Media_Next}
ExitApp

For Previous:

#SingleInstance, Force
#NoTrayIcon
SendInput, {Media_Prev}
ExitApp
