There isn't a driver as such. This is the Driver Information File which tells the MS Windows Joystick driver which options to use, in the same way as many Postscript printers share a PSCRIPT.DRV but have a different data file which identifies the printer, and avaliable paper options.

It's not my fault Rockfire don't have a specific driver!
