Ok guys, I've done enough searching on google on how to remedy this problem, now I have decided to ask the experts.

I use my gamepad (propad6) to play GTA Vice City. As it is much easier to play with a gamepad then with the default mouse and keyboard. I set down the other day for a nice little session of gameplay, only to find out my pad wouldn't work. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled, to no avail. My puter says under the device manager that the gameport is functioning fine, but the gamepad just says it is not connected. When I try to calibrate the pad it tells me (joystick couldnt be captured) Please help guys, I have faith in ya. :p
