Hey people,

i just bought my housemates old mac keyboard off of him, and i have windows XP, was wondering how i can get some of the keys to work, eg the F7 to F12 including the eject button, i downloaded the firmware .dmg file off of apples website and converted it, but i dont know what to do with it, it would be nice to have them all working, thanks your time, any help would be great help

thank you!!!

if you downloaded the dmg-file from apple it will only contain software for osx or below. no files that you could use in windows. I don't know it there exist any software for windows which lets you define that keys with special functions. Maybe try to google it ;-)

Err.. Theres gotta be something wrong with the keyboard if the F keys arent working.

The Eject key doesnt work with the default XP drivers, but the volume keys do.

A mac keyboard has way more F keys then a standard windows keyboard. so did you really mean F7 to F12 or F13 to F16?For me all Standard F-Keys (1 up to 12) work in Windows.

maybe a hobby-programmer made a program to make that functions usable. Or simply turn your pc into a hackintosh, then all that keys will work for sure :D
