SOURCE: Detected before, but not after. Help me please,

Go to device manager and uninstall everything under the USB heading and restart your computer. This should reinstall all the drivers and hopefully reinstall your mouse. You may need to rerun the driver you downloaded for the mouse afterwards.

My next suggestion your be to try the mouse on another computer to make sure it is not defective.

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.

I have a 25 pin microsoft sidewinder force feedback pro joystick which I use with a flight simulator. After updating to win 7 x64 I need to convert this to usb for the hardware to be viable. Any...


hey m8,

stumbled over your post while searching for sullotions for the same kind of problems.
I also have a perfectly working M$ sidewinder FF pro, trying to get it to work WITH force feedback.
However I am affraid there is no way to do this. From what I read is the gameport to slow to keep up with nowaday PC speeds :(

I got the joystick working up to windows XP (in XP it lost its FF tho and slowed down gameplay sometimes. Not sure if that was caused by the joystick or the game itself running in some compatibility mode). I was using the gameport from an old soundblaster live! by the way.

I did find something that may be usefull for you tho. Check the link below:

I havent tested this yet myself and it will require a creative soundcard but I think it will have a better chance of working that using some converter from gameport to USB.

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.

Microsoft sidewinder force feedback 2 joystick


Well, I just noticed this exactly same problem with my new PC, so i try it with my older PC and it works fine, I´m not sure if this has something to do with the USB 2.0 or the driver, but i was not able to find the version 5.X for it, microsoft page only has the version 3.2.

the extrage part is that both PCs are using the same version of WXP.

Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Driver


Sorry to report that there is no driver for this stick that will allow the feedback to work with Win XP. I wanted to cry when I first found this out. I've been searching since the mid 90's for a work around for this. We can send a man to the moon and back on less than 1 meg of ram. But someone can not get this stick to work properly with Win XP?

That REALLY SUCKS!!!
