    I've tried installing various versions of tattiebogle's Mac OS X driver for Xbox 360 controllers and each time I get an error message telling me that it didn't install properly. Weird thing is that each time I open my system preferences, it tells me that I need to restart it in order to use the preference pane for tattiebogle's driver. However, I'm not sure if it's because I'm using a wired Hori Pad Ex Turbo for 360 (there shouldn't be a problem because it's supposed to be detected as if it were an actual MS brand wired 360 controller seeing as how it's an actual licensed 360 controller) but for some reason the controller isn't detected at all. Support for this driver is non-existent seeing as how it's free so he's not obligated to give any support so any help would be appreciated. I'm really hoping that I don't need to get the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows just to be able to use a wired controller. I'm not sure what version of Mac OS he had in mind when he developed this driver but I'm currently using Snow Leopard (10.6.1). Not sure if that could be the problem but I'll look into it.

    He has updated the driver a week ago to work with snow leopard, it looks like you have the older version (won't install properly.) Here is the link to the driver download page:

    I'm not sure if a non-microsoft controller works, I would think it should be the same, but you never know what parts the generic controllers changed/left out.

    I'm having the same problems the OP listed in his post. I've even manually copied the files to their locations, then appropriately changed their permissions and ownership, but I haven't been able to get the 360ControllerDaemon to launch successfully. As a result, the pref pane doesn't show any controllers because the daemon doesn't alert it that there's one connected.
