    This should do nicely:

    Or, I actually have one of these (N-22V) that I'm not using anymore. It even has a knob that I robbed from a factory GM tape deck. PM me if you're interested:

    looks like he was using volumemouse to get the volume to work. its a program that basically hotkeys the volume task... so as he had it, you hold down the cntrl key and then use your mouse wheel. ive used the program before and its fairly reliable.

    so it would work, but you would need something to act as the cntrl key... and your volume will be a two step process (push button and use volume). i think you would be better off if you could find a program that takes a specified mouse and uses that mouse's wheel only for volume control... that way it stays separate from your normal mouse functions and should be more reliable, and much more oem in functionality.


    also, i wouldnt doubt that you could just pull the knob off that griffin powermate, and mount the unit on the back of the faceplate... then attatch your own knob to the front, something about half the size like a normal volume control is.

    you can program it to work without pushing a button just scroll and it turns the volume up and down, and I thought that was perfect because I can wire it into the stock volume knob
