thrustmaster warthog is showing up as multimedia device

Hi Everyone
I have just installed the Thrustmaster Warthog flight stick and throttle. No hassles with throttle but the Warthog is showing as a multimedia device in control panel and will not work within FS9

Any help would be apreciated

I'm assuming you've tried unplugging and plugging them back in?

I have done that, Uninstalled and then reinstalled, The Warthog Throttle works perfect, I also tried installing via compatibility as I am on Windows 8.1 and the Manual says it is compatible. My CH Joystick works fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I paid £200 for the Joystick :sad: and Throtlle

Not sure about that. It should be plug and play no problem with Windows. Are you using a USB hub or plugged directly into the computer?
