Is there any way for me to leave both my USB Joystick (for flying games) and my USB Gamepad (for adventure games) connected to my PC and just disable one before playing a game instead of swapping all the time? I'm getting really tired of plugging and unplugging these things. Thanks.

It should work fine with whatevers plugged in without disabling them the game will respond to whatever you use at the time so you can use one the other or both with most games.

You can disable them but its probably too much work its easier to unhook it but you shouldnt have to both should be able to be on the system you might occasionaly have to select which you want to use in somegames.

You are correct. I've noticed that with my full games I get to select which I want. It's the demo's that I'm having trouble with. I guess that's a drawback to demos...
