Xbox 360 controller works but Madcatz Arcade Fightstick doesn't.

Hello I am having issues where Windows is not recognizing my Arcade fightstick. According to what i've read it uses the same drivers as a 360 controller. I have followed the steps to properly install the drivers but no go. Help would be appreciated

I would recommending downloading the drivers from madcatz, they might be the same but they could be at different versions.

I would have linked you directly to the page but im not familiar with your OS.

Please follow the steps: Mad Catz | Downloads

all of the products listed are mouses/keyboards and joysticks. At least to what I could see. I use 64bit version of windows 7.

Joystick and Flight stick do share the same drivers.

p.s, - your system specs say "OS Ontario "

I solved the issue. I went into device manager>*fightstick*>properties>install driver>choose driver from a list and manually selected the highest version of xbox controller's drivers. Not sure what it was trying to use maybe an older version?
