keyboard with keycodes > 255... What to do?

well... My multimedia keyboard has several keys that produce keycodes
> 255 (after running showkey in console)
The problem is that appearantly the kernel can't handle these, and
that's why it doesn't produce any scancodes (showkey -s)
I thought that I was going to be able to access those keys using the
evdev protocol, but sadly enought, that made things even worse...
My keyboard is a logitech Desktop MX Y-RJ20 connected to my USB port.
I already had to make some changes to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/inet to be able to use the
multimedia-keys that actually do produce a keycode.
for evdev protocol, I already tried this:
Identifier "Logitech Y-RJ20"
Option "Protocol" "evdev"
Option "Dev Name" "Logitech USB Receiver"
Option "Dev Phys" "usb-*/input0"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "logiinkseusb"
Option "XkbLayout" "be"
Any solutions for this?
Thanks in advance...
