i'm trying to use a madcatz controller on the mac but it turns on for 2 seconds and turns off. the system profiler picks it up as a xbox 360 gamepad but says its not been configured. how can i allow my self use this with my games!

I have exactly the same problem.
I'm a little peed-off with Microsoft on this. The original wireless controller I have doesn't work either since the cable I'm using is 'just' the charge and play cable, so a direct connection to my Mac won't work with this cable. It's a cable for god's sake. Why on EARTH put any limitations on this!?!?
Next I learn I need an additional USB wireless receiver from Microsoft to get my original 360 controller to talk to my Mac. As I certainly don't want to fork any more microsoft dollars on this, this is not an option.
Next I think, yes! I have a MadCatz 360 wired USB controller. This should surely do the trick just plugging it in and the way I go. But oh no, for some reason I plug my MadCatz Xbox360 controller in, it flashes a few times then switches off and can't be turned on again.
The System Profiles recognizes it as a MadCatz 360 device controller but that is about it, but the ontroller software I download for the System Prefs (360Controller, USBOverdrive etc) don't even recognize the controller as being plugged in.
What the **** Is The Microsoft Deal with all of this!?!?
PS: Oh, and I forgot to mention, there are No drivers for device 4716 that I can find on the MadCatz website, or am I going blind?
If anyone has a link, it would be appreciated.

    I have opened scanned pages in to acrobat X1 pro and cannot edit, it says its not editable text how do I scan it as an editable text

    All scanners output one thing only -- an image, a picture of the stuff on the paper that was scanned.
    There is not "text". There is a picture of text characters.
    This image / picture can be brought into a PDF. What is in the PDF is still an image / picture of text.
    Open the PDF with Acrobat. Use Acrobat's OCR feature.
    If you desire to touchup some characters use the "ClearScan" OCR.
    (Review Acrobat's Help to resolve any questions on this.)
    Note that PDF is not a word processor file format and does not tolerate word processor like "editing".
    Use Acrobat to do touchups to characters and short character strings. Save As often.
    Be well...

    You can try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via Store > View My Account and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find that app and use the 'Report a Problem' link.

    Hi t0m#2410,
    How did you install Acrobat, did you install it as a part of Suite installation.
    If it is a part of suite then deactivate suite uninstall Acrobat, Reinstall Acrobat using Suite media. Launch Photoshop first and Activate.
    Then try launch Acrobat.

  • Charges have been made to my bank account from iTunes that I did not make .  How can I speak to someone about this matter.

    I have charges madero my bank account that I did not make.  How can I speak to a live person?  I show nothing on my account as purchased.  The purchase on bank account says itunes store purchase.  I think someone hacked my account.  Any help?

    Call your credit card company immediately and dispute the charges - sounds as though someone has used your credit card especially since there is nothing showing on your account as purchased.

  • A favorite web-site that I used extensively with a previous Firefox version will no longer connect using Firefox 4.0.1 which I upgraded to this morning. The message says "Connection Not Encrypted". How can I access this important site?

    The first message after Firefox fails to connect says "This website does not supply ownership information." Then is says "Connection Not Encrypted."
    Yet my previous Firefox version connected readily to this same site.

    I appreciate this option, to go back to an earlier version, but I really want to use the latest FF, so the counsel from cor-rel, about dealing with cache and cookies, is the solution I pursued. And it worked!
    But thanks for responding to me. It's great to know that such support is out there.

  • My iPad is disabled and it says to connect to iTunes with my Mac. Its not working. How can I get my iPad to work?

    My iPad is  disabled and it says to connect to ITunes with my Mac. It still is not working.

    Recovery Mode
    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.
    Note: Data will be lost. You may have to repeat the above many times.

  • I use XP and Outlook version11. When I receive a link in an emai it takes me to Explorer, not Firefox. How can I fix this?

    Links to websites in emails take me to Windows Explorer, not Mozilla. Is this changeable and how?

    I think you meant to say, Links always take you into Internet Explorer, not Windows Explorer (that is the file manager, it is not a real browser). This is a Windows setting - Mozilla cannot make Outlook to behave, but Windows can. But first, open your Mozilla browser on any old website, and have Internet Explorer closed. Next, open Add or Remove Programs (it is opened from its item in Windows Control Panel - if the W.C.P. is not in your START-button menu, open the Control Panel via My Computer) and look for the left-side menu bar. Left-click on the icon marked "Set Program Access and Defaults." Left-click the "Custom" radiobutton, and it will show you the list of Defaults that Microsoft has already set for you, or maybe you will need to click on the little double-down arrow at upper right, to see the list. [Microsoft always has it set to Internet Explorer, for the browser.] You want to change that, so, if Mozilla or Firefox be shown here, select its radiobutton; if not shown, select the radiobutton for the "current Web browser." Leave the checkmark in the checkbox for Internet Explorer - you might need to run it in event Mozilla crashes or comes down with a virus - some time in the future. You can also review the other settings there, and fix them the way you want them. Happy browsing!

  • Firefox has always opened with an extra tab that says "server not found." How can I fix this?

    Several years ago, I downloaded Firefox for the first time on my Xp machine. The browser opens to the home page, but up in the tab area, there is always, and I mean through EVERY version and upgrade since that first one, including the most recent version 4, there is a second tab just to the right of the home page tab that says, "server not found." Now, since the home page loaded, it is obvious to me that the server WAS indeed "found." what I don't understand is why this second tab is there. Any ideas? I have read through the FAQ about not finding the server, and nothing there is relevant to this, as far as I can see.

    How many pages do you have set as your "homepage"? <br />
    Firefox allows for multiple homepages in separate tabs, separated by the pipe | symbol.
    Try resetting your homepage. <br />

  • When I went to turn on My Photo Stream in iCloud settings, its not there.  How can i get this?

    When I went into icloud settings to turn on My Photo Stream, its not there.  I only see photo sharing.  How can i get My Photo Stream?  I treid deleting the account on ipad and then setting it up again and that did not work.  Thanks

    that is mysterious
    try this
    Reboot device by pressing both the home button and sleep/wake (power) buttons at the same time for 10-15 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen, then let go.
    If that doesn't work then reset the device by going to settings/general/reset/reset all settings  (or for network connection issues 'reset network settings').
    (no media or data will be deleted from the device, this will only take a minute).
