External ITWorks Numpad won't work on MBP with Mavericks

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Hello,
I'd be really thankful if anyone knows the solution to this one:
I have a new MBP with Mavericks 10.9.2, for working in Sibelius (notation software) I always used an external
numeric pad, an I.T. Works model (KP-6910W) via USB.
It perfectly worked with my old MBP (OS 10.5.something) but isn't even recognised by my new computer.
Choices in "change keyboardtype" in the system preferences menu only contain full keyboards by either japanese, european or
american standards, but no numpads...
Thanks!

Philipp,
I use KeyRemap4MacBook as a numeric keypad substitute. On a US English keyboard layout, pressing the fn key provides the following “built-in” numeric keypad equivalents:
7890-   to   789/=
uiop    to   456*
jkl;    to   123-
m,./    to   0,.+
