    Okay, so I'm following this guide to have XBCD recognize my controller. I get to step 4 where it says the select the folder where xbcd.sys and xbcd.inf are. The xbcd.inf file wasn't there but the xbcd.sys file was when I downloaded XBCD, so I just got it off the internet somewhere. I put those two files in my XBCD folder. When I click on "Browse" and XBCD.inf, it says that XBCD.inf cannot be found. So I just put the file on my desktop, went from there, then it says the hardware cannot be installed because the inf is invalid. I probably did something wrong when I tried to install from disk. The guide however lists a picture of what I think it should look like


    I don't know if I have a Driver folder or an Xbox folder if that's where your suppose to find it. Also for some strange reason, "XBCD XBox Gamepad" shows up twice when I'm trying to select a device driver. I tried to do this four times with two different controllers and they all failed and the computer wont recognize them anymore. Luckily I have two more controllers left to try this with. How do I fix this problem? Could the Xbox.inf file contain the wrong source code from where I downloaded it or something?
