Sidewinder X6, issues with iTunes

Hi,

Got a Microsoft Sidewinder X6 kb and when I install the IntelliType Pro driver/software it stops the media (play, pause, skip) buttons fuctioning in iTunes (full screen or not). Without IntelliType they work but without it I can't setup macros, custom buttons etc.

btw there are no issues with WMP.

Has nobody got this keyboard, or is just that nobody's had this issue?

Well just for the interest of others who might run into this issue, I've managed to solve it myself. Basically there's a bug with IntelliType Pro 7.1, just use version 7.0 and the buttons work fine in iTunes again! Interestingly thought if you try to get the drivers through Microsoft Hardware section, under software downloads you'll only be presented with 7.1 and if go through Microsoft Download Centre it's only 7.0....if search for 7.1 it doesn't even seem to think it exists?!
