Default It says my Joystick isn't connected.

Ok, so I found my old Thrustmaster Top Gun Fox 2 (NOT Pro!) and installed it. Everything seemed to be working fine until I looked at the game controllers list:

Dammit.

Now the PDF ( http://putstuff.putfile.com/67418/6017825 ) is the help the Thrustmaster site gave me, and everything is normal according to it, but it still tells me the Joystick is not connected...

Help?

Are there any new drivers for it?

That's the thing, it doesn't have an exe that just installs it, you have to configure it yourself (nice idea, thrustmaster )

Try opening Device Manager, clicking Actions>>Scan For Hardware Changes and it might pick it up...it's worked with my steering wheel a couple of times...

Oh, does it matter that I'm connecting the Joystick through a USB converter? My computer doesn't have a gameport thing or whatever...
