which exact logitech controller do you have? some have a switch on the back to change from directinput which older games use and xinput which is what newer games.

yeah that's a old controller and apparently does not support XInput only DirectInput and will most likely not work on new games. there is a software program you might try to convert directinput to xinput called "x360ce" or you could buy a new controller either a wired xbox 360/xbox one or you could get a logitech f310 which supports direct and xinput for old and new games.

in a "worst case scenario" event, you can/should be able to use the Logitech software to re-set the controller's buttons to something that GTA will recognize reasonably well -- you just might miss out on analog stick function, or poor//non-existant pressure-sensitivity on buttons that are "supposed" to have it.

ie: changing your controller through it's own software to send WASD controls for pushing the DPad, that kind of thing.
