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...
