    Is there a driver? I am not using bootcamp but a dedicated windows 7 machine with the apple aluminum keyboard and notice some buttons do not like to work (like the media ones) Is there a driver that would enable them?

    They keys at the top work as function keys. On Boot Camp Macs there is a small Boot Camp program that starts in the background and transfers the hitting of F1 to brightness down and such. Other manufacturers do this either through the BIOS, such as on laptops, or by their own custom program that takes the hitting of the function keys to do other things. No drivers outside of the generic Windows USB/PS2 ones are needed.

    I've forgotten the name of the program but there is one that allows you to remap / map an Apple keyboard on a windows machine. You'll have to use Google unless someone here pipes up with the name.
