    Will the megaupload links you posted also work for xp 32bit?
  • merchats10024 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I'm using Bootcamp 3.0 with XP SP2 32bit, the megaupload drivers seems not to be working with mine. sound is really quiet and poor vs 2005 mac book pro 15'' is really bad. Im going to ring apple tomorrow to find out what is going on as the machine cost quiet a lot of money for this kind of issue is not acceptable.

    ... I want to add that just bought new MacBook Pro 13'' and this sound issue relate to this laptop and my post above.the megaupload drivers not helping though.

    Try installing this hotfix. I forgot that Apple included this hotfix in the update, seeing how it was specifically for Windows XP users. I don't know if it'll make any difference at all though, since I can't test it.

    Other than that, that's the only thing I can help you with. The 32BIT drivers are exactly the ones that are included in the update. You might want to upgrade to Windows 7 anyways...

    I must have missed this too:

    They must be specific drivers to Windows XP. Install the hotfix first then these drivers.

    The magaupload driver really works on my macbook 13" late 2009 using Windows 7 32bit.
    Clean sound, high volume (as MacOS X), speaker works, and no red light.
    Thanks, to KJA+ for extracting and sharing.

    Is there any fix for mic problem with Windows XP sp3 on mac with bootcamp 3? other things are working fine except this mic!!!

    KJA - big ups for creating/finding/posting these driver fixes for our Cirrus audio. Working well now and very happy to not have audio issues under Windows 7 x64.

    I can confirm that in Windows 7 64 bit, the drivers uploaded by KJA+ that are extracted from boot camp w2.2 work perfectly with Windows 7 64 bit version. You just extract the Binary folder, run DPInst.exe, wait for driver to copy over, and restart your computer. The red optical light no longer shines through the headphone port, but still works fine whenever you need to use SPDIF out. The speaker volume sounds comparable to OS X finally (if there's a third sub speaker, its definitely on. My biggest concern when I got this was the mic would not work in Skype. I am glad to report that the built in microphone finally works fine in Skype. Please note iMic USB adapters do not work in Windows 7 like they did in Vista.

    So far the only two things that are lacking are
    1, the keyboard backlight does not turn off completely unless the lid is closed.
    2, the Nvidia 9400m chipset cannot be used
    but these issues are irrelevant to this thread

    I have no idea why Apple has not released this in a bootcamp 3 update, maybe they will when they officially support windows 7. Can anyone else confirm success in Vista or XP?

    Thanks a million to KJA+ for extracting and uploading the drivers!

    It does NOT appear that the latest drivers uploaded by KJA+ work for XP 32bit over bootcamp 3.0. I installed the hotfix provided first and then the 'BinaryXP' DPInst file without any luck. Unless of course I did something wrong... Audio output appears to work ok (not nearly as loud as Mac so maybe not), laser pointer appears to be off (but it was off before this fix because I had applied another workaround), but the mic still sounds like Darth Vader and is unusable...

    Hopefully Apple will release a 3.1 or whatever to fix this mess!!!!!
  • Goga Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    The drivers uploaded by KJA+ worked like a charm (good sound volume, no red light, mic working) for my mbp13" (mb990) + win7 32-bit.

    Also have read about the permanent keyboard backlight in windows on a mac. You can switch it permanently off by deleting bootcamp.exe from the windows statup and then switching off (or on) the backlight via

    In this way you can control the keyboard's backlight, but will lose bootcamp features (touchpad tap - left click, two-finger - right-click, and the use of F1-F12 keys)

    P.S. Sorry for my english, it isn't my native language.
  • Raydy0hed Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Has anyone heard anything on this issue or even better seen a bootcamp 3.x update containing the fix that people are reporting exists in 2.x?
  • djtana Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    the solution at the moment is the one that kja+ posted a few posts back on page 30, near the bottom. install bootcamp 3.0 from snow leo disc. once done... restart and then install the driver kja+ posted. obviously download the correct one. One this you will run into that seems to be consistent on atleast 4 of the macbook pro's from this year is that if your sound dissapears after the restart, reinstall the driver... it seems the driver causes the system to hiccup and lose the driver. once reinstalled it shouldnt do it again. gl though. tested and working on windows 7 64bit with bootcamp 3.0 with the updated sound drivers from apples latest bootcamp update.

    KJA+, you are my freaking hero. I've been having the same problems, and my sound was worse on my MBP than on my iPhone. This fixed the volume problem, got rid of the red light in my headphone jack, and my speakers were also buzzing. This fixed EVERYTHING. Please share your knowledge with all!!!
  • spikeyxx Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I've installed the driver from the megaupload link on windows 7, and the right hand speaker sounds quiet compared to the left. Does anyone know how to address this?
