Hi,

In this case you can istall the drivers as the vista os is having some trouble in detecting the hardware.

Its always better to go in & install the drivers.

This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

But you have to be patient.

First, i want you to download a free program called "Orbit download manager" from the link below,

http://dl.orbitdownloader.com/dl/OrbitDownloaderSetup.exe

And then you can download a program called "Driver genius" from link

http://www.qwerks.com/download/6776/drvgenpro.exe

it is a trial program for 15 days

dont worry we only need it for 5 minutes

Install & run the program & in the windows click on the update the drivers

It will check & it will give the window with the drives that needs to be updated & it will not update a it is a trial one.

So you just right click on the driver name, you will get a message called 'copy url address 1' copy that & open the orbit downloader & click on the create new download & paste the link the drivers will be downloaded for free.

Some sites give these drivers only for the money & we cannot be able to find them from the free sites, so i think this would be a nice trick.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

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!

Problem with gamepad


Unfortunately, I am unable to find any Vista drivers for this gamepad. However, it should be supported natively. Try going into 'game controllers' in the control panel and see if you can set it up from there.

Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium


Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.
