Wow, no replies.
Okay, let me ask this then.
Does anyone else use the Bella Professional Series 3.0 Keyboard with the Jog/Shuttle wheel? (5201-A)
Couldn't tell you honestly....I have a "World Tech" keyboard that I won for free when PPro came out (like....version 1) and I occasionally have problems with it dropping from my KVM switch but having to reinstall a driver seems highly unusual.
Obviously it wouldn't have anything to do with Adobe or PPro if it's a driver issue.
You may want to try just doing a device refresh when you start up....go to the windows icon and type "Device Manager" in the box then open it up. Select keyboards (or anything, really) and then right click and choose "Check for hardware changes." Your keyboard should pop up.
If this works, then there may be something inherently wrong with the device driver (likely that it needs to be reinstalled in a Windows XP compatibility mode). Or there may be something funky about the USB port it's plugged into. Or if you're like me and using a KVM switch, you probably bought a cheap KVM switch (also like me) and your only real solution is to buy a better one. But even that's not always gonna work. Seems like all KVM switches have to be "reset" frequently. Our enterprise switch in the server cluster used to foul up all the time and it cost almost $1,000.
Hope that helps!
Should also note that my particular keyboard doesn't have a jog/shuttle...it's just a standard keyboard and has no device driver of its own.
I'm in the same boat as Christian. I use a WorldTech keyboard without jog/shuttle and requiring no special drivers.
Thanks for the suggestions. Hadn't even considered the USB port idea.
I'll give those a try.
