    Has anyone got a DWW-700M working with the Mac mini?

    I've got my mini installed and hooked up to my DWW-700M fully motorized display, but I'm having problems getting the touchscreen drivers working. I've downloaded the latest version (1.0.6.3001) from eGalax. The System Profiler sees the touchscreen and the TouchKit application sees it but does not have the type or version, only the interface. I've tried reinstalling the driver but haven't had any luck getting that to work either.

    I've emailed DWW's tech support but I'm wondering if there are any here who've been able to get this display working on a Mac mini, and if so would you mind sharing your experience?

    Thanks!

    Just bought a Mac Mini today and got it working with the 700M. Will post pics tomorrow on RainyDayGarage. The touchscreen is also working fine after the 25 point registration...no problem with the driver installation.

    However... I did install the driver without plugging in the USB cable from the screen...when I didn't see the device detected, I plugged in the cable an it showed up right away.

    We also did a customized Tiger install (no printer drivers, no other languages). Basically as minimal as we could make it.

    Well, maybe I'll just wipe the drive clean and start over from scratch. I've so thoroughly messed up my mini's display configurations using DisplayConfigX that I can't get it to even display on the 700M anymore anyway, the only monitor I can get to work is a 15" IBM CRT. Be very careful when playing with DCX! I'm going to talk to the guys at MacVroom before I play around with it again, and probably email the developer too.

    I'm still having problems with getting the 700M's touchscreen software to work on my Mac mini. I've even wiped the drive and started over with a completely fresh install of Tiger and the latest TouchKit driver installer. Still no beans. It recognizes the interface but doesn't show the type or version so I'm dead in the water. I've gotten no response from either eGalax or DWW from the emails I've sent them asking for help.

    hmmm... the only other thing I can think of is have you tried another USB cable? Long shot, I know, but...
