Hi all,
I am a switcher, thats right, and a proud one too. But I hate it when my already existing hardware does not work with the newer machines. Here is my problem.

I have the Microsoft Presenter 3000 which is a remote control thingy for showing powerpoint/openoffice presentations on a PC/Linux box respectively. But when I plug it into my MacBook, the MacBook goes crazy telling me it is trying to detect another keyboard. What the **** is with that?

If any of you talented users can hack my problem and provide me some cracks, I will appreciate my new mac even more.

QUOTE Thanks

I don't have a solution, but it does that because the Presenter obviously uses a keyboard profile - my Logitech media keypad does the same thing, and OSX asks me to press the key next to the shift key, which it doesn't have. Sadly it won't work unless I do press the key.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
