I just purchased a game controller, specifically a thrustmaster firestorm dual analog 3, and it is supposed to be automatically recognized by windows 98se, as an "HID compliant Game Device" however, nothing happens when i plug it in to one of my computer's usb ports. The LED on the controller lights up when i plug it in, so its getting power, but it is not being recognized. My usb ports are on a pci card, so i'm not totally convinced that they are working, but they show up in the device manager. I'm wondering how I can be sure that my usb ports are functioning correctly, and if they are, what can i do to get my computer to recognize the game controller when i plug it in.

The easiest way to check them is to find a USB device that you know to be functional and try it on your system.

Surely, you have friends with computers! :)

I'm not sure how you'll ever isolate the problem if you don't have any way to test either the controller or the USB ports...
