Pro Keyboard and 9.1

According to the Apple site, with the installation of 9.1, the new keys on the Apple Pro Keyboard are supposed to work (volume, eject, mute). I have a G4 450 (PCI), installed 9.1, but still get the annoying "do you want me to look for the USB drivers" message everytime I restart the computer...and the keys don't work.

Anyone have any success getting it to work?

Yes I got it to work after installing 9.1. At first when i bought the Keyboard I noticed in 9.04 in the Keyboard control panel that it only went up to F12 even when I installed the new Keyboard. I then noticed the version on the newer Macs had a newer version of the Keyboard control panel and proceeded to install that into my G4 after obtaining it from a friend who works at CompUSA. but the mute and the volume keys didn't work. neither did the disk eject key. The moment I installed 9.1 everything worked like it was suppoesed to. Then again I did a clean install.

Hi theriver,

In regard to that annoying message, I recently bought a new Epson printer and experienced the same problem. The USB driver for the printer is in my extensions folder and the printer works just fine. Even so, I was constantly getting that annoying message you mentioned. The one about the USB driver not being found and do I want to search the Internet for it. I finally just used the Extensions Manager to turn off the "Software Update" control panel and that stopped the message. After updating to 9.1 I still got that annoying message, so I have once again turned off the Software Update control panel. You might want to do the same thing.
