Windows 7: Need some Gamepad help

Need some Gamepad help

Hey guys

I recently bought a Genius Maxfire Grandias 12V gamepad. It works in windows 7 and everything, but the prob is it uses the generic drivers for it. So the problem is that the vibration doesn't work. Now on genius' website there is a supposed windows 7 driver, but I just can't get it to work. Installed it a billion times and it still uses the generic driver, tried disabling windows 7's automatic driver installation, but then when I install the genius driver, nothing happens. It just doesn't recognize the device.

I have searched through the whole damn internet, tried everything I could think of, and nothing worked. I have no idea what to do. I really want the vibration to work! If anyone has any suggestion, please help! I have search for a .inf file as well that I could maybe use to update the driver, but I have no idea what it is suppose to be called.

Thanks

EDIT: I used a extracting program to extract the so-called windows 7 driver, and it contained two dll files: jsdriver.dll and jspage.dll. They both install into C:\Windows\SysWOW64. So now I'm wondering if there shouldn't be some sort of .inf file or something? You can't install a device with two dll files, can you?

JMO but thinki this is something you'll need to let the manufacturer know about so they can refine thier driver so the good vibrations work.Fabe

Best gamepad for windows?
I had a Logitech controller for the longest time but I guess the 1000 times I dropped it caught up with it because its broken. I want one that's slightly like a PlayStation controller because I'm used to that. So that's why I thought of just of getting a Logitech dual pad controller again but a...

Standard gamepad driver for Gravis Gamepad Pro USB?
Hi, I've got a Gravis Gamepad Pro USB and although a device is detected when I plug it in, it fails to install a driver. I can't find any Windows 7 x86 drivers on the net so I believe that I have to use some kind of standard HID driver to get it working, although I'm not sure which one. When...
