I know about the threads that deal with this problem and a fix has been found. However, I can't access the file because all the links are dead. I need FM7_X0D.ISO fix the problem. Can anyone send this file to me so I can finally move on from this issue? I tried searching for FM7_X0D.ISO on many search engines to no avail. Please help me out here, I can't stand the messed up buttons any longer...
