Thanks for your replies guys, means a lot. Right, i tried the bootcamp stuff but legally i cannot get it, you need apple osx leapord and i do not have it, torrents of just the drivers have been claimed to work but not for the volume, and play pause buttons. The apple pro k is for the older keyboard and does everything but the desired again, for some reason my keyboard works without all these drivers, most people on google are looking to get the function key working, but mine works already (shrug) IF anyone has any idea or has drivers for these keys, or can tell me how to map them manually, i would appreciate it. Thanks all Chris P
I am using one under XP. I installed the Bootcamp drivers as I have the Leopard install, but I've never had much joy getting the hotkeys working. I can use the F keys as F keys but not the multimedia controls or brightness etc. Other than that CMD = Start and Option = Alt. Numlock = Clear. Haven't been able to map print screen or scroll lock though.
I managed to cobble together a few work arounds, they are not great but they work. So for those people viewing this thread in hope of a solution they can use too, try these untill a better one appears. Mute - See this page here http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/free-command-line-tool/ Itunes - See this page here http://itunescontrol.com/ With these its possible to map the keys to work for itunes and basic windows functions, note that the mute application can be used tohotkey basic windows functions, contrast, volume, launching. Hope these help until a better solution comes around. Chris P
