Toshiba Front Buttons Controler - Use the front buttons of your toshiba portable

Staff review

Toshiba Satellite 5000 portable control of Winamp

Allows for you to use the front buttons on a Toshiba Satellite portable to control Winamp. The .dll installs ok, but I personally didn't have a Toshiba portable to properly test out the functionality. Seems fairly bare bones the interface is only the image you see above. No configuration or menues. If anyone encounters any bugs, please email the author.


Great Great !! - I got my Toshiba Satellite A60 laptop 4 years ago and have always wanted to see the media keys work with Winamp. This plusgin works perfect!! YaY!! - July 18, 2008 by waleed_uuw Qassem

Seems to be allright.. - I have a Toshiba A200.Installed this stuff because I was searching for this kind of functionality, so thank you very much :)As long as winamp runs the buttons work fine for winamp.When winamp is closed my Play button runs Media Player.Anyway. Quite fine :)cheers - May 11, 2008 by Bitlan Alexandru

Great Plugin for M55-S3314 - Wow! this is a great little plugin for Toshiba Satellites. I love it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite M55-S3314 and it works great on it. Now I can controlo WinAmp with the multimedia keys, which were originally designed to work with Windows Media Player only. great job! - May 29, 2006 by Victor Bustos

dosen't work for all toshibas - The file downloaded fine, but didn't work with my Satellite A70 BR-2. I have the media buttons on the side of the keyboard rather than the front. The interface is strange as there are no settings, just the image shown above, when you hit properties from WinAmp. - January 2, 2006 by Fonz Arelli

Awesome. - Exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks. - December 30, 2005 by Francois Beausejour

Works Perfectly - Works perfectly on a Toshiba M-35-S456. Good job, although i did have to switch it from CD to mp3 control for it to work or else it opens WMP ;) - October 22, 2005 by Ramon Melero

WOrk under Toshi_Satellite A60 - I was looking for this soft for years !!! :-) It work with my Toshiba Satellite A60 laptop. I removed first the "TOSHIBA Button Controls" software. Inconvenience : I just need to launch winamp first, but 5 stars anyway. - September 6, 2005 by fif duv

It works on my Tosh! - Works great under a Satellite 2045. Thanks to Nicolas Viennot! - April 27, 2005 by H A

Source is now included!!! - Hello all, The author of this plugin has now included the source in the download. I would have emailed you Dave, but winamp posts dont give that kind of user information. Can you, or someone else reading this, please add to this plugins functionality by including support for the remote and front buttons? Hope to see another plugin surface soon. Thanks!!!!!! - October 17, 2004 by yaywinamp weeeeeee

A good start... - This does do what it claims to on my Satellite M30. However, it also blocks the use of the other Toshiba proprietary buttons, such as the shortcut buttons. If I had source, I would happilly fix this... It'd also be nice if the plugin could be registered with Toshiba Console to start WinAmp, rather than accidentally starting the media player that came with my OS (I'll give you one guess.) It also seems to ignore the mode setting, which is supposed to switch between digital (mp3) and CD audio. - August 30, 2004 by Dave Suffling

This is perfect! - I've been looking for something like this forever! I'm not sure what people mean when they talk about it disabling other buttons; my Fn key works fine while it's running. It did disable the DVD and CD keys, but I don't use those anyway, and wouldn't want to pop up Windows Media Player by pressing them accidentally. It works perfectly on my Satellite 2400-S251. Thanks for making this! - July 13, 2004 by Anders Aamodt

Satellite 5005 - The front buttons work great to control winamp when it is open, but cause the two buttons on top to stop functioning while winamp is open. If you want, I could try to help with it to see if i cant fix that? Anway, great job. I've been looking for something like this for a while but too lazy and busy to make my own - May 24, 2004 by Roger Shields

Nice one :D - Works great on my Satellite Pro 2100 :D Thanks Nico ! - May 28, 2003 by Math Deuka

Review and Install Instructions - I am very pleased with this plug-in. However, there were no installation instructions, and there apparently isn't a way to start Winamp with one of the buttons. (Toshiba issue, not software) I have created some instructions to fill the void. This plug-in works beatuifully on my 5205-S703. Toshiba 5xxx notebook Media (front and remote) Button Controls for Winamp 2.xx (not Winamp3);$sessionid$EFXYO4JSDUZ5VTN241HRCZA?componentId=110332 1. Download and extract the files 2. Open the Toshiba Console, and choose TOSHIBA Button Controls 3. Choose Application mode, and enable it in the check box 4. The first key is "Previous," so browse for the newly extracted files, and choose "Prev.exe" 5. Repeat the previous step for the remaining keys: "Next," "Play/Pause," and "Stop" *note: make sure the application mode is selected with the "MODE" button (three settings total to cycle through) - March 4, 2003 by Andy Atkinson

heeelp - I Have a toshiba satellite 3000-s353, the plugin doesn't work, do you have something to help me, the pc cames with windows media player, the buttons only work with thah P.O.S, the buttons works with the easy button software from dritek, please do something!!!! - February 7, 2003 by fernando moreno

Toshiba Satellite 5105-S501 - Wow. It was exactly what I was looking for. It works great and does exactly what's advertised. I just wish that it was able to LAUNCH Winamp, because the buttons still open either Toshiba Media Player or Windows Media Player, which both suck. Also adding support to the TOSHIBA REMOTE CONTROL would be awesome as well. I guess I'll just have to wait around... *waits*... *waits*... *waits*... WHAT? STILL NOTHING? Get to work dude! - January 29, 2003 by Peter Downing

Excellent - I found that with Winamp 2.8 on Windows XP Home on my Toshiba Satellite 503 this plugin worked exactly as described. The play/pause buttons and the next/prev track buttons all work. The only thing missing is the ability to press "mode" and watch Winamp come up, but that's only a minor annoyance. - January 9, 2003 by Tim Carstens

Toshiba 1905 - It doesn't works with my Toshiba Satellite 1905 series. - January 3, 2003 by Jonas Eyzaguirre

toshiba satellite 1400 - great Plugin....... I'm sick of all these laptops that only support windows media player when really its a POS..... It's always been WinAmp......Works great on my toshiba satellite 1400...... - October 21, 2002 by t- bONE

Kicks Ass - Work on my lame toshiba 2400. Nice job! - September 4, 2002 by John Cab0San

Sweet! - Just what I was looking for. Finally puts those buttons in front of my Toshiba to a good use. Now, if someone could figure out how to get the remote control supplied with the later modells to work, I would be even happier. :-) - July 24, 2002 by BoS Nova
