I a recent post I whined about problems with TrackMania Canyon and a Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 Joystick. Meanwhile a bought an X-BOX-360-controller (just the simple, wired one) - and this works perfectly well.
What makes me wonder is the CD that comes with it "Xbox 360 Accessories 1.2". Don't get me wrong, just plug in the controller and all is set and done, works without any driver installation, update or whatever. Nevertheless we have this CD, and the curious mind wants to know... Well, it installs about 100MB to your hard-disk, but after a while playing around with it I was unable to find any useful feature.
