    I bought one of those controllers and let me tell you,it was only one day before I returned it.Total piece of crap.I did however make myself a copy of Tony Hawk 3 that came with it.lol
    Try a logitech wingman,that is what I bought and I am quite happy with it.

    most PC games, if they don't support gamepads/joysticks immediately, should have an option in the config file that you can edit in Notepad to enable pad/joystick support.

    i'd also suggest a Logitech Wingman pad, if the Sidewinder doesn't "do it" for you. Logitech drivers come with a program that lets you program the gamepad buttons to substitute for keyboard commands once you start the game. this works for games that have absolutely no joystick support because the Logitech can act as a replacement for the keyboard.

    You can do that with the N-45 aswell plus you can use one of the Sticks to work like the mouse....
