Howto Make Dell XPS M1530 Multimedia Keys Work With iTunes!!!

I have being using itunes for a long time on my Dell XPS M1530… The only thing that bugs me while using itunes is that the multimedia keys only work when the itunes main window is in focus, which is very irritating…

After a little bit of googling I found out this post and his solution works… This is what you have to do to fix this issue….

Download this plugin: (I uploaded the plugin to my site, just in case if the author removes it)

mmkeys.dll

Copy the file to iTunes Plug-ins folder…

For XP Users: “C:Program FilesiTunesPlug-ins”
Vista Users: “C:Users<your_username>AppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesiTunes Plug-ins”
In each case, you have to create this folder if it doesn’t already exist…

Now restart iTunes and your multimedia key should work…
