Pardon my rush on typing I meant "numeric pad". OK PROBLEM IS SOLVED. It was a HID extension by itself.
It was turned off. I haven't used a machine for a while and don't remember how it disappeared from my Pro Tools extension set.
Extension by itself is not needed but it gives this annoying message. what to num pads some buttons stopped working altogether messing things out even more, I have to figure out how to fix it. Would be a shame to give up such a lovely keyboard

Pardon my utter ignorance here, but what is a “bum pad”? Some USB device (connected to keyboard/hub)
that’s not recognized by the “HID Library” extension in OS 9 ...that is possibly causing this annoying message?

Same Apple Extended keyboard (Mitsumi Electronics) with Driver Version 1.5.9
shows up here on MDDs working under OS 9.2.2 without startup message.
Do you have something "different"  plugged into the keyboard's USB ports?
Disconnect non-apple USB devices and test.
New or recent OS 9.2.2 install?

Thanks for reply.  ASP reports ir to be Apple Extended keyboard ID524 driver version 1,5,9 (Mitsumi Electronics) if its matter.
So on startup it reports that can't find a software needed for USB device Apple extended keyboard. Anyway it works with a generic driver I guess and see it as USB Hoob but bum pad not working I would like to get read of annoying message on startup No more. Thank

I probably shouldn't have even posted this thread because now they're more sought-after and I've literally driven up the price of them. This thread has nearly 30,000 views, for example.

It has helped many, so don't be like that :) or I won't wrap any more pallets of ProTools stuff that you can't seem to help yourself from buying even when that old junk is out of state and here in CA

call yourself the Jack White of classic MacOS from now on...
(the dude made the prices of guitar trash gear shoot through the rooftop) ;D
But it's a highly specialized domain and most such machines were studio gear anyway.
I recently saw a Quadra 650 with NuVerb card and some other stuff selling for about $300 much less than expected (in Germany), so lucky purchases are still possible.

Most of the MDD's powersupply capability is designed for running a bunch of big HDs in the box, which is not required for most modern/SSD solutions.
When testing with 2 Pro Tools cards I had the side open, running only one of the PSU fans from an external 5V source at low speed and mounted a big fan (also low speed) to the CPU cooler.
I was surprised about the really low heat emission from the PSU case (both case fans were disconnected)
This isn't a proper solution but shows the potential of silence mods if you're careful about specific heat sources.

Also observed the 9600 rarity while checking various online sale sites.

Based on your pic, you have the "Apple Keyboard" A1048 made from 2003 to 2007. Although it post-dates OS9, it is supposed to be compatible with OS 9.0.4 forward.
I have and have used the preceding model "Apple Pro Keyboard" M7803 (with the USB ports on a top "extension" on each end). That's the acrylic that came with the MDD in black or white keys from 2000 to 2003. It has the same requirements of OS 9.0.4.
My kbd has a clear / num lock key which is actually labeled as both with an LED that will not light (though another LED on the "caps lock" does). It works in both 9.2.2 and 10.5.8 as a "clear" when using the Calculator but NOT as a "num lock" in any app I can think of. in fact, in OS 10.5.8, I get a complaint sound if it's pushed anytime other that in Calculator.
It reports that it can't find a software for a apple keyboard. After I press OK it works but no numlock
What do you mean "no numlock"? when? How?
Since the num keys (and indeed, virtually ALL num keys on Mac kbds) do NOT serve dual-functions for up, down etc. there's no reason for even having a num lock key on a Mac kbd. that's why your "clear" is labled only "clear".

As for the "can't find software for an Apple keyboard", all of the code for kbds is in the OS.
There is the "USB Device" Extension 1.5.9 which needs to be active but I'm guessing that's NOT your issue because virtually nothing USB works without it.

Is there a chance this is an error from a 3rd party extension or Control Panel / app? I only ask because we have to guess since we can't see it.
If it's a Mac OS error message, I can only guess you have something missing from the base System and unless someone here is a ResEdit genius who knows exactly what to look for, you should reinstall a new OS9 from a different source.

Thanks. I have a 9600/300 that I upgraded to a G4 1.0 GHZ and 1 GB RAM. Also popped in a Sonnet SATA card and an 80GB SATA drive, plus an ATI 9200 card.

The 23" Aluminum monitor is currently plugged in and working good too.

My only complaint is how it takes 4x as long in Photoshop 7 to do anything which the G4 MDD does with ease. Sure it is the march of tech between the two, but the 9600 is miles quieter than the MDD!
