Controller not connected, but it is.
Hey, been trying to get this to work since christmas, this is what happens:
I plug it in to the gameport on the computer.
under control panel > Game Controllers > I hit Add
I chose the 2 axis 2 button controller When I click ok, the little message at the bottom right corner of windows pops up to say it found new hardware and successfully installed it. However the game controllers window says that it is not connected. I went into the device manager to take a look, there are no conflicts and the game port seems to be running ok according to the manager. I also checked the HUMAN Interface Devices
There it lists:
Generic Game Port Device
HID-Game compliant controller
both working normally.
But the game controller window in control panel still says it isn't connected and won't calibrate, and of course it doesn't work in the game.
Anyone got any ideas? This controller is the one that comes with a game called RealRace Generation 2 (G2)
AMD 2.2 Ghz
CMI8738 sound card
ATI Radeon 9250 128mb video card
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
