    Here's a new one for me. My 3 media keys don't work for any applications such as Windows Media Player, iTunes, Open Pandora. Everything else works though?!? I reinstalled the keyboard driver and there has been no change. It's like those keys are disabled. Pressing fn will let them use their typical F function, so they work, it's just being blocked by the BootCamp manager or something. Any ideas?

    Something else - they keys are invisible to the OS. I can't use a 3rd party hotkey manager to just reassign them.

    For something as new as windows 7, i wouldn't expect much in terms of a fix.
    did they work for W7 64bit before?

    I think I had them working for an hour or so. I'm not sure when they quit. It's weird that just those 3 keys would stop working though.

    I'm not sitting around. I'm trying to figure it out and will post a solution if I find one.
