The reviews of this gamepad on the Apple Store site are reporting that the unit is not functional with Call of Duty 4. I was thinking of getting it but now I'm not sure.
On another topic, if it does work, how hard is it to learn to point in FPS, first person shooters, with a game pad? The mouse is directional, but m MX Revolution is way too sensitive and over turns....

Excellent! Thanks for the fresh post! Now when you get a solution that you like or works for you, you can mark it as "solved" to imply the answer helped
At this point, it appears that CoD4 does not have gamepad support on the mac. I will do some additional research into this, but usually gamepad support is handled by the developers, and if the developer does not include support, then our gamepad cannot be used.
There are 3rd party USB utilites that allow you to capture USB commands and change them to keystrokes, allowing the device to effectively emulate a keyboard through software, but I can't specifically recommend a particular one. We are aware of this situation, and we are exploring our options to help our customers be served even better with our products.

Well, my tracking speed is set to medium in keyboard and mouse in Leopard, but ever since I had a the previous mouse to the Revolution (an MX1000), I have used the Steermouse software because it gave me the ability to completely assign actions to all buttons for different software, whereas with the Logitech software, some of the buttons didn't work on the Mac. So Steermouse has an acceleration setting that is universal for all programs, so the faster you move the mouse the further it goes, like a sling shot. I've got that set to about 300, if that means anything. If I turn it down too low, the mouse movement crawls to a standstilll

Just for the sake of testing, would you be willing to remove the 3rd party app? Or is there a way to temporarily disable it? Or can you specifically disable their acceleration settings while playing CoD4?
I haven't used Steermouse, so honestly "300" doesn't mean anything to me besides a movie
