Joystick problems: USB Device not recognized

Pro Member Chief Captain

Hi,

A couple of days ago my joystick failed....for no reason. I tried re-installing etc but Windows came up with the message "USB device not recognized". Apparently I needed to "replace the device" so that I did.

I have just bought a new joystick....installed the drivers only for Windows to not recognize it again Crying or Very sad

Any help would be much appreciated.

Oh and by the way...I have tried all my USB ports and I do not have problems with other USB devices like cameras, keyboards etc, it seems my computer does not like joysticks.

Thanks 😉

Sounds like a conflict with the USB components, try these simple things.

1. Disconnect all other USB devices (except keyboard and/or mouse).
2. Completely remove your new controller.
3.Reboot computer, Windows gets gets weird when it runs long periods without a fresh start.
4. Disable anti-virus, temporarily.
5. Install your new controller by connecting directly to the computers USB port, don't connect thru a hub, hub may be bad.
