    Thanks iqbal_del, the controller is a logitech dual action game controller suitable for the mac. The only software that came with it is a mini cd to set it up for a Windows computer.I bought it to go with Call of Duty and while the game follows keyboard commands the logitech controller does nothing. I'll try the "gamepad companion" utility tomorrow and let you know how it went. Thanks again for your help
    Cheers Chris

    • See in the user manual of your game controller. Whether it supports for MAC or not.

    • Allso check out the driver/software is installed properly if any driver is needed for game controller.

    • However, a game that supports gamepads should pick it right up on a MAC, so connect this and just start the game. And check-out it should work.

    • There's a commonly used utility called "Gamepad Companion" on the Mac - see

    ok Chris,

    I think it will work if your game supports gamepads.

    Thanks for your feed-back. I think you will give fixya rating to my solution tommorrow.


    With great hope.

Brand new apple dvd drive will not accept dvd

The DVD works by just pushing it in far enough till you get resistance, then the drive pulls the DVD in by itself. If after it pulls the DVD in, it just ejects it, The DVD drive thinks you are using an incompatible disk.

You can also try resetting the SMC.
This is how to reset SMC on most modern Mac laptops:

Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro
Connect the power adapter to your Mac
On the MacBook/Pro's keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time
Release all keys and the power button at the same time
Boot your Mac as usual

Here's the key sequence to hold down:

Reset the SMC of a MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro

Do keep in mind that by resetting the SMC you will lose power specific settings, like the time it takes to sleep a Mac and other customizations to power settings. No big deal, but if you have made many changes to your hardware behavior you will want to adjust stuff like sleep behavior again.
Reset SMC of an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini

Resetting SMC is different for non-portable Macs:

Shut down your Mac
Disconnect the power cord
Press and hold the Mac's power button for 5 seconds
Release the button
Reattach the power cables and boot the Mac as usual

Reset the SMC of a MacBook or MacBook Pro's with detachable batteries

sad mac reset the smc Older MacBook laptops with a removable battery can reset SMC with the following approach:

Shutdown the MacBook/Pro and remove the battery
Disconnect the power adapter, hold the Power Key for 10 seconds
Release the power key and reconnect your battery and power adapter
Turn your Mac on
Let boot as usual

Hopefully that will clear up your problems, if not it might be worth a visit to the Apple Store or a certified repair center.

Happy New Year,

My macbook pro can see the macally joystick

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.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...

I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

AA3 (America's Army 3) & Gamepad

America's Army doesn't support controllers natively (or they didn't the last time I played). You'll have to use a software emulator to make the game think you are using a mouse and keyboard while you use the controller.

I have this controller and it should have come with a logitech disk that has software on it to achieve this.

You might want to check out this site or this site for other software solutions.
