Hi folks,

Pretty much on a whim today, I picked up an x box 360 controller, one
of the wireless ones that come with the USB wireless dongle thingy and
Windows drivers.  Far from my usual style to just take a punt on
something without daft amounts of research, but I really liked the
design of the pad for almost every type of game I could think of, and
I haven't seen that in a pad since dreamcast days so I had to have it.

Now, here's the issue.  I've installed the software that came on the
cd called microsoft xbox 360 accessories, and the drivers too.  From
what I can tell with Jaws 10, everything except for the help system
seems to be totally inaccessible, so thanks for that Bill!  The dongle
half of the equation is detected fine by Windows, but in spite of
batteries being in the controller I'm getting no action.  I guess I
have to pair them up somehow, but the help system only describes how
to use the accessories software post-installation, and I couldn't find
an electronic copy of the manual on the cd.

I fear it might be a case of sit down with a sighty for a few minutes
to figure this one out.  Next time I'll have chance to do that isn't
until late into the weekend though, so I also figured it'd be worth a
post to the list to ask if anybody has the same hardware and knows
what I'm missing.
Really hoping that the inaccessible software won't matter too much
once I know what I'm doing because I'm all over the design of the pad
itself and don't want to return it unless I have too.

Cheers in advance
