    We can't get Multi-player mode to work on my son's G5 iMac (1.5Ghz, running OSX-10.4.8). The game won't acknowledge a "second-device" when a 2nd USB keyboard is connected. He's been patient up to now but now he's frustrated. What kind of "second-device" is it looking for?.... Anyone know?

    I didn't think it was possible to have two keyboards connected at the same time, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Perhaps you would need a different peripheral connected, like a joystick or steering wheel?

    Re: Multi-player on Cars...

    thanks, for the response.

    I tried a USB XBOX control (borrowed...) but no luck. Think I need special "Mac" drivers to get USB XBOX working on our iMac?

    Well, the secondary device definitely has to be compatible with Macs, and I don't know if an XBOX controller would jive.

    I think your best bet would be to buy a computer specific controller that is compatible with Macs. If you do buy one, just make sure and open the package as neatly as possible so that if it doesn't work you can take it back to the store. ;)

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    Cool! Thanks for the link, bmb012. I'll try it out when I get home. You may have won "Brownie Pts" with my son...:)

    Thanks, bmb012; you saved the day! The driver from the provided link worked! The XBox controller is now working with the Cars: Video Game on our iMac.
