Does anyone know how to get a Gravis PC GamePad to work on a Mac. I have an adapter for the gamepad to plug into USB Port, but when I plug it in, nothing happens... possibly a clever app to make it work.

I also have a Microsoft Sidewinder Sensor Game Device - same question.

From everything I've read, the Gravis are hardware specific. You'll need to find one built to work on a Mac. As for the MicroSoft one, I don't know anything about those.
