Compatible Games Controllers

Likes # 0

I have installed some PC games which are mostly flight simulator or car games.I have tried using my XBOX 360 controller but when I inserted the software it said it was incompatible with this version of windows (windows 7 )I also have a Logitek attack 3 joystick but nothing happens when it is connected and cannot seem to find my user manual.Can someone advise on either of these two items or suggest something suitable to use.Almost forgot I also a Saitek P2500 Rumble Force which I have not tried yet.

Xbox and I only used it for that one game.

As for your first question I do not know if it matters which one you choose. If the game does not play on one try the other.

I presume you are talking to me about compatibility mode? If so the answer is yes.
