    Generic USB joypad, right analog defaults to buttons

    Today I bought a chinese generic USB joypad with two analog sticks. The right analog stick is set to buttons 1,2,3 and 4 (cross, circle, triangle, square) and when I press the Analog button, the indicator doesn't light up. I also tried installing the drivers on the CD that came with it, no luck. This is the joypad:

    SOLVED: The Analog button probably was incorrectly installed and needed a very strong push to activate.

    I had an issue with a game pad that I purchased that I intended to use with a iMac and Windows 8 but it never worked properly on the windows side. I was told to get an Xbox 360 pad - got the one from GameStop and it works fine.
