Hi, I recently bought a Retrolink N64 styled USB controller from Amazon. It came with the controller and a disk that contained the driver for the controller on it. After installing the driver I plugged in the driver and the device manager shows that it is unrecognized and in the Mouse and Pointing devices category. When I go to try and add the usb controller and calibrate it, there is no option for me to choose the controller. Please help me to figure this out.

Ok I figured it out, apparently the Motion in Joy driver doesnt work well with the driver of my controller. Please lock this thread.

Well MotionJoy is bad drivers in itself. That's the problem.
We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Apparently, Windows 7 is "full of issues such as this" as well, so there wouldn't be any point.
