    The -01 sounds like it is not usb supported and will only work with legacy ps2 ports
    Try using the laptop ps2 port

    The first link is what Cap reported on early
    The rubber backlite keyboard is changed to a standard type
    So right that off

    The second link , member Orion90 received a decent keyboard reported on a earlier post in this thread

    It is extremely easy to spot the ones which have been changed to standard keyboards, no stripe on space bar, no backlight. The ones changed from emissive to rubber, if there are any, would need a closer look.

    the buybdl guy says in the fine print that these are NOT backlit. got 2 of these from him and pictures he showed me of the -02 units did look different and did have line on space bar, so I ASSumed they were backlit, but NOT!!!!!!!! but anyway got 2 -03's that worked fine. The cracychit1 guy, doesn't pack things well and keys wind up broken or missing in bottom of package. He does sell full package with cables monitors and KB's that mine was packaged better but were no icons on all the fn keys. I think he still has a number of these left to sell. I may buy a few more just to see if I can set up a virtual type setup from one laptop with workstations if I can figure out what all this means, for what its worth..........Driller

    Just bought my CF-VKBL03 keyboard from buybdl on FleaBay and all was in order. Keyboard was well packed and included two sets of cables (which I didn't need). Keyboard was in great shape showing minimal use.
    Very pleased with the product and the service.

    That's because I wrote him some time back and explained how to tell if the backlit keyboard was still installed. He inspected, determined they had been changed and wrote me saying he was going to edit the description accordingly. Guess he did.

    Another load of CF-VKBL03 units on e-bay for BIN $40.
    I got mine, and now have an emissive KB in my CF-29L.
