I have an Apple keyboard that I use with my windows PC because I love the Apple keys and any other Keyboard feels wrong (Out of the ones I've had my hands on anyway)
Now, the Apple keyboard comes with 2 USB ports on it, these are great because it means I don't have to dive behind my PC to connect stuff like my ipod/phone/cardreader etc. In theory at least, because windows doesn't play nice with my keyboard.
Specifically, it doesn;t feed the keyboard enough power to allow full use of the USB ports (all I can do is charge my phone, really) so my question is if there is a way to increase the amount of power my keyboard gets and if there is a way, how do I do it?

Basically, what you are running into is the USB limitation that voltage to unrecognized devices is severly limited. To get around that, you are going to have to locate the driver for that specific keyboard and install it. Your best bet seems to be finding a copy of "boot camp" and extracting the proper driver files from there. Here is a thread on it, there are others: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45140

You may also be able to find the specific driver if you look it up by keyboard model number if you know it. Or possibly see if driveragent can detect it, though you would have to subscribe to use that.

Thanks, this looks a lot more positive than the "No, of course not" I was expecting. Smiley: smile
