    sidewinder not working on my ms vista

    No Vista drivers for Sidewinder FF Wheel.



    Even worse: if the wheel is plugged-in (usb) some games do not start any more!



    Crazy that Microsoft sells high-kwality Sidewinder products but afterwards refuses to update the drivers and gives no support at all.



    I was allways pro-ms but this one is realy making me an anti-M$ !

I am sorry, but I have to tell you that the Sidewinder II is not Vista 64 bit compatible.

Here Microsoft page for Vista compatibility, when they say unknown it means it does not work on Vista 64.

I hope this can save you some time.

Hi.

There is no Mac OS driver for the Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 as this is a PC only devices. The Microsoft Sidewinder 2 occasionally works on Mac with only few (old) games. This happens because some game has built in controller software for the Microsoft device.

I suggest getting a device designed for Mac OS.

No lights no FF for momo


Vista simply doesn't support a lot of game controllers. Flight sim enthusiasts are still amazed that even Microsofts own Sidewinder sticks are not supported by Vista. Don't hold your breath for a patch either, so far Micrsoft haven't shown any interest in sorting out their own products, so your only hope is that some tech-savvy person happens to want to use the same stick and shares the driver.

You need the USB adapter if you want to use it in Vista. They are very hard to come by, as most of them don't seem to be compatible with any of the Sidewinder products. This is your only option and not guaranteed. The adapters are about £10.
