Calibrate works

I recently bought this steering wheel and it installs the driver very well, but when i try to play driving games, the car is on reverse the whole time unless i push gas or put the gas in the middle and the same happens in menus. The menu goes downwards the whole time unless i put gas in the middle. Looking at the axis, it is down the whole time and moves to left or right if i move the wheel or up if i push the gas. I think it should be in the middle.

Any instructions?
Do the "controller" command from Start as instructed and calibrate the pedals. It works YES!

The Callibration in Controller works but is completely redundant due to fact that the Sidewinder is digital and never changes unless it is broken. In Win 7 there is no where to adjust FFB effects or ammounts due to the XP software not installing.
