Both my Cyborg joystick and IR receiver are not being deteced as USB devices. I have installed the driver for the IR device but in the Device Manager its just listed with a yellow question mark under "other devices" instead of under the USB section. what the heck is going on here?

Thanks for the support!

I have resolved this issue, I recently just upgraded to XP professional and it solved all my USB issues... I guess I had some corrupt files or something?
