Windows 7: Device Calibration issues

Device Calibration issues

Hi - having a wee issue with the calibration of my steering wheel and xbox 360 controller.
When I first got them, I had screens that showed an image of the device, that allowed for configuration and calibration like the following pics:

Today I needed to calibrate the xbox controller because it was beginning to drift, and low and behold - all my calibration screens look the same now:

You'll notice for the xbox calibration theres only one field for a joystick - not two , and no dpad either...
The steering wheel calibration had pedals and gears as well...

I had a look under device manager and this is what it looks like now:

I'm pretty sure there should be an entry for the xbox there -but I see none - it's somehow generalised everything I have.

Anyone have any ideas how I can get the old config screens back?
I've tried de-installing, reinstalling - software as well as entries in the device manager.
I'm stumped and I can't seem to find any info on the net - or maybe I'm using the wrong key-words.

Look forward to hearing from you
Thanks in advance
