    I have a 09 2.8Ghz Macbook Pro running 10.6.3 and for a while i have wanted to use a game pad for several of my games and roms i have on my laptop. Well now that every time i try plugging it in the GSOD happens, I tried both usb ports and it happens. I have plugged in different usb cables and devices such as: a usb mouse, external hard drives, and several flash drives. All of those devices do not cause the GSOD so i am trying to figure out why this is happening. The game pad is from Logitech and the brand name is a Dual Action, it looks exactly like a PS2 controller except the buttons are numbered instead of triangle, square, etc. I have used a game pad on this computer before, the same one in fact but i dont know why this is happening now.
