This controller might not be compatible with Mac OS X. Try to Google the name of the Macally joystick + Mac OS X. I think you might be able to find a driver.

Saitek AV8R-01 Joystick - How to install?

No download disk is required. Your PC will automatically 'find' the joystick after it has been plugged into a USB port.
You can just about play any flight sim with this joystick, jat, prop plane or helicopter. The buttons do what ever you program them to do through your game's control settings.

EasyCAP USB 2.0, can't install driver from CD, Window Vista

Your going to need to download the drivers for it off the internet. The same problem happened to me so i decided just to search for the drivers. I downloaded them, and then when i was installing it asked "Search computer for drivers" so i did that and found where i had downloaded the drivers to and then the EasyCap Capture Card worked. The only problem is you will need a good recording program to record with because the program they give you probably will not work. I decided to download AmCap which is a software that lets you record with your Easycap. Also i downloaded Pinnacle Studios 12 to record. If you have a Windows xp computer you can use Windows Movie Maker to record.

Civilization 4 game

I had an issue with Vista and my video card. I had to go to the video cards manufacturers website and download the most recent driver for the card. Also if your game is open they won't let you exchange it for something else. I hope this works.

Logitech game controller not working with Vista

Your gamepad can work in almost any game. All you need is a profiler software, which you already have, and you need to assign commands to gamepad's buttons so you can play a game with it. Some games support gamepads by default; in that case you dont have to do anything. But in many cases you have to set it up yourself.

I help people make profiles for their games. I can help you make a profile for Tiger woods. I always include instructions. It takes pretty much of work so let me know first if you are still looking for it. Then I can get to work.
