newb help
« on: September 06, 2017, 11:06:20 pm »
Ok I know I'm a newb and I did try searching for my issue and didn't have any luck so hoping I can get some advice here..  I was able to do some trade work for mame system a few years ago and thus began my journey into this awesome hobby.  I never really had to work on the system but now I've done some I'm stuck and because I didn't build the system I'm a little lost on where to start.

My system was running fine on xp but for a number or reasons I decided to move to win7.  I did this by unhooking the old HD and putting in a new one and did a fresh install.  This leaves me the old drive as reference but a blank new drive for configs and software....but I don't know where to start.  My current problem is around my controls.

I have a controller card that reads  x-wiz ECO ST/MAX my problem is that when I try keywiz3w7 it says connection failed....I even tried the gp model as I also have two spinners and it says I don't have device installed.  So I'm lost...I don't know where to go to start setting up my button config so that I can use in gamex or hyper spin.  Can somebody help me out or point me in the right direction?  I couldn't find much help on their website so I'm turning to the group.  TIA!
