Hello Coshaun James,

You must find a compatible driver for your joystick. Try do download this software it's called Driverpack Solution and it's totally free.

you can download it here

You must download the fullversion not the lite one then after downloading it make sure that you plug it up first your joystick on your computer before running the driverpack software. The driverpack would give you automatically the right driver for your joystick the only thing you need to do next is install that driver.

Hope it helps.. :))

One way of getting a sure shot on the driver you’ll be installing since you have no idea on what driver to install for your joystick is to install an application and let it analyze the device to examine the possible driver to download and it will also automatically download the correct driver for your joystick.

One such program that will let you do the trick is Driver Whiz. It is a paid driver update service that will scan your computer for correct drivers and offers them easily and conveniently. There is a registration fee of around $30 that covers 1 year of subscription. Try it if you want an easy fix on your problem.

Try also downloading this Generic USB Joystick Driver which I think will also work on Olidata S.p.A. JumPC joystick. Another way of making your old joystick driver to work on Windows 7 is to download and install a tool called Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b. It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 so there’s no problem installing it on any editions.

Follow the instructions on the page on how to use it. Next, install the old joystick driver. If your device was blocked by Windows, go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel. Select your joystick driver then click something like “Click here for support information”. It will display the information of the driver which includes a website URL. See image.

Copy the URL and paste it into the program and it will patch it. Restart your computer when prompted by the program. After booting, right-click My Computer then select Properties. Select Hardware tab then click Device Manager. Find your joystick on the list of devices and expand it. Right-click on the device then select Update Driver.

Let it finished updating the driver. Once it is finished, you will see it just like a generic USB controller. By the way, these steps I described were done in Windows XP since I’m not running the same operating system as you are. Just try adapting it on your operating system then see what happens.
