Question about Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro 2.0 (326-00041) Joystick

1 Answer

Vista cant find my Joystick

I have a mIcrosoft Sidewinder 3D Pro 2.0 Joystcik. i used it for a log time. now i have vista and that darn thing wont even detect. the farthest it gets is when it detects that there is a USB device that is flagged as unknown. No one has vista drivers for it and Microsoft says theyre no longer supporting it. Which is assinine since they have no new joystic of flight stick to take its place. So can you please help me to find a way to make it work?

My sidewiner worked fine with xp now new computer

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.

Combat flight simulator wont recognize my sidewinder precision 2 joystick on vista but it did on xp?

I am farmiliar with most flight simulators and know that you have to go to settings on the main menu the controls and select joystick, enable joystick and/or calibrate joystick. If this doesn't wok then in gameplay push "alt" on your keyboard if the task bar for flight simulator isn't at the top. Once or if it is allready there select settings and then enable joystick. If this doesn't work then call or contact or google microsoft flight simulator.
