Usb plug to 9 pin game port


This is a problem. Even USB gameport adaptors don't seem to work with the sidewinders. Shame cause that's a great stick.
Best bet would be a PCI soundacrd with gameport(that you can find drivers for) on XP, since vista and up don't support analog inputs.

Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro - wiring


Since its very risky and very tough for a person who is not having a knowledge of electronics....to be able to repair it you should know soldering ..a elecronic device know as soldering machine comes through which you can solder all the braked wires.....if you remember where the wires were before, you can do it..just buy a soldering machine ,flux ,and soder wire to fix the wire ..

a flux is a chemical cleaning agent which facilitates soldering, brazing, and welding by removing oxidation from the metals to be joined.
Soldering is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint, the filler metal having a relatively low melting point. Soft soldering is characterized by the melting point of the filler metal, which is below 400 °C.[1] The filler metal used in the process is called solder.
Soldering is distinguished from brazing by use of a lower melting-temperature filler metal; it is distinguished from welding by the base metals not being melted during the joining process. In a soldering process, heat is applied to the parts to be joined, causing the solder to melt and be drawn into the joint by capillary action and to bond to the materials to be joined by wetting action. After the metal cools, the resulting joints are not as strong as the base metal, but have adequate strength, electrical conductivity, and water-tightness for many use

Have microsoft sidewinder force feedback pro with 9 pin connecter.need usb adapter


You have the old game port connector. I have one of those too and researched it and even bought one of the adapters. What I found is that the adapters will generally work EXCEPT if your unit has force feedback. The force feedback versions of the MS sticks uses a special protocol that the adapters can't handle. I haven't looked recently, but if you look for an adapter make sure it says it will support force feedback (most will say they don't). In my case I just bought a new joystick.

Make sure you get the latest drivers for your soundcard. The drivers will include the software for the joystick port so its recognized properly by windows. Also you may want to go to the support page for your soundcard to see if any settings would need to be changed as well.

Need a port for my MS force feedback pro


Just get yourself a new soundcard with a gameport on board. Disable your MoBO soundcard if you have one and instal the new one. Creative is probably the safest option. Update the drivers and off you go. Don't forget to add the joystick, the drivers are supplied in XP.
