I'm trying to connect my wired xbox 360 controller to my PC but its just not being recognised. I followed the official microsoft guide (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906347) but that hasn't worked. i downloaded and installed the software it says to use in step 1 but when i connect the controller to the PC it says i need to instal a driver (which i already have) so i select it to find the driver but it says "the file 'hidusb.sys' on Windows XP Professional service pack 3 CD is needed" then asks me to select the folder its in.

the default location thats selected is "c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386". the problem being i dont have an XP pro service pack 3 disc, i have a SP 2 disc and updated to SP 3. i tried using the XP pro SP 2 disc and found the hidusb.sys file but when i continued the driver inastall, this message poped up:

The software you are installing for this hardware:
USB Human Interface Device
the has not passed windows logo testing to verify its compatibility with windows xp

at the bottom it had a big bold warning that basically said that this might completly mess up my operating system.

im getting very annoyed with this, i've been trying to get it to work for over 2 hours now.
