I recently purchased a microsoft natural media keyboard. As some of you might know, these keyboards only seem to come with ps/2 plugs unless you take it a step up and pay the extra 60$ (on top of the $60 some odd you are already paying!)
Anyways, I made purchase of a ps/2 - > usb connector, and the keyboard seems to work beautifully, no problems there. However, even though I installed the drivers, the special keys (messenger, my documents, mute, and all the other special buttons on the keyboard) do not seem to function at all. I didn't quite know what was wrong, however, the volume controls do work (although mute does not). The media buttons (play, pause, stop, etc.) do not work.
One additional piece of information I should add is that this is going into a laptop computer, so there will be two keyboards simultaneously working. I can at any time switch between the two and sucessfully type.
If anyone could offer any help on the matter I would greatly appreciate it!
