I used one like that for my windows xp home PC (It looks just like the Playstation 2 controller) and it worked with MAME (original arcade games that were downloaded on my computer) It comes with a little CD that has the drivers on it...Look on ebay..they are very cheap coming from China and Hong Kong

My logitec precision gamepad is not working in NHL 2009.


Thank you for your time and attention. Can I use a Logitech Precision gamepad to play online video games? I plugged in the USB in the front of my pc tower, but I can't control the games with it. The games only respond to my keyboard. Is there something I need to do or is it that I can't use it to play online videogames? Please help.

Gigaware controller on vista


Hi,
You don't (and can't) disable DEP for the controller (a gamepad controller isn't an application, it's a device which uses a driver, Data Execution Protection applies to applications ie .exe files), it's the game or emulator you disable DEP for, so that you the game can run, completely free of security bindings, and then you would be able to go into the game configuration menu and select your gamepad, and calibrate it. Calibrating means the game detects you gamepad and applies the specific functions to each button.
One way to be sure is to disable DEP for everything, then install a game, and THEN plug in your gamepad. Then start the game/emulator and go to the configuration menu within the game/emulator and set up the gamepad calibration in there.
If it doesn't work, then you haven't installed the drivers for the gamepad properly, or haven't installed the correct driver.

Before doing any of that, you would have checked in Control Panel and Gamepad Controllers, double clicked the Gamepad in the list and pressed Calibrate, to enable generic gamepad functionality.
If you hadn't done that, do so now.
If it still doesn't work, then NOW disable the DEP (either all DEP or for the game/emulator you want to play). Unplug the Gamepad and load up a game. Then plug the game pad in. Set up the gamepad from within the game/emulator config menu, which differs from game to game, of course, but is more or less the same.
If it doesn't work.. re-install the correct driver for the gamepad.
Also make sure your operating system is fully updated and you're plugging the gamepad into a usb2.0 port. and have rebooted after installing the gamepad usb driver.
That's everything you need to know..
Good Luck!

I have cheap gamepad i was working properly and one day when i was playing it sudely stoped working and now when i connect my gamepad pc shows it as unknown device


The wiring may be frazzled. I bought my son two 'compatible' gamecube control pads so he could play his gamecube games on his Wii, but they got fried. So my new motto is to spend that little bit more if you want longevity.

Dekcell USB Double Dual Vibration GamePad- No Drivers, Unable to Detect


Most games have a option menu that allows you to set in-game joystick contols. So go to option and go to joystick.. and you can most likely set your keys there. Some games have this, others do not.
