Hi,
I have recently bought a CMI8738 C3DX sound card for a few pounds on eBay only for the Gameport on it, not for the sound. However, after trying to connect my InterAct PC Raider Pro joystick, I have come to the conclusion that something is wrong. When I plug in the joystick, nothing happens. When I attempt to add my joystick as a 6 Button joystick in the game controllers screen, it comes up as not connected, even after I restart the computer. The sound, however, works fine. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and the sound card itself. I have also searched online for any solution.
The Gameport does show up in Device Manager

I don't normally ask for help on forums so please excuse me if I have done anything wrong...

Thanks, crossharu

System - HP Pavilion t000 (apparently)
Windows XP Home
1Gb RAM - DDR
P4 3.0Ghz
IDE HDD
Just reformatted...again

You might want to check for conflicts in System Information - http://74.125.113.132/search?q=cache...&ct=clnk&gl=ca

I do have onboard sound, but I have disabled it in the BIOS.
Also, I have tried all the things on forums like the one you Posted!

Thanks for the advice so far,
crossharu

'The Gameport does show up in Device Manager'

Any indication of problems there?

Yes, the GamePort does show up, and there seem to be no problems there. It is completely baffling me.
btw: I have tried the joystick on another computer and it does not work...

Thanks,
crossharu

Try Add New Hardware or use the 2 axis 4 button install.

This comes from an archived Windrivers thread; http://forums.windrivers.com/vb/arch...p/t-14671.html

Both solutions do nothing. The game controllers finds the joystick as Not Connected. The Add Hardware wizard does not find the joystick when I haven't added it, and when I have, it says that everything is fine.....???!

Thanks Again,
crossharu
