I need driver for XP and for Vista. Controller is an old standard gameport device but with a logitech gameport/usb adapter, the system finds a not recognizable multimedia controller. So I think I need an USB driver for that piece of HW. or a good substitute.

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.
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.
hi i think what you will need is a games adapter for the pcmcia slot on the laptop, if you are in the usa here is a site that will be of interest to you on where you can buy one from..at least you know what to look for now...hope this helps, just click on link.
I uninstalled everything to do with sound etc, removed the sound card (gameport included), cleaned up the registry, installed a new sound card with gameport and it is now working. With a new soundcard, you get up to date drivers and that, I think, was the problem. MSFFP does not like an old Aztech Soundcard. Drivers for the joystick are included in XP and seem to function OK but I doubt whether you will be able to use it in Vista. I have the handbook if anybody wants a scanned copy.
Please uninstall any logitech software version present on your OS -
Then please proceed to clean boot.

-> Unplug all the USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) please use corded kbd+mouse if possible rather than a cordless device.
-> Go to device manager
-> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them --
-> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation
-> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon )
-> Once reinstalled, clean boot
-> Reinstall the software if available and/or plug the hardware when needed.
-> Should work.
This TB delete the usb ports " memory " means if a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If after this the issue persist, then I suggest you to call Logitech support to issue a replacement, hardware failures are covered by warranty terms
Thanks and have a nice day !
A Gameport to USB adaptor will not work with Suncom F-15 with or without the SFS Throttle. You have to obtain and install a PCI sound card that has a DB15 gameport. Creative AudigyLS cards work great, when these instructions are followed:
The wireless is not going to turn on and off via the switch properly until we get the drivers loaded to make it work. There are 3 possible types of wireless card it could be, so we have to find out the exact model number of your system. On the bottom there should be a label that has a P/N or part number listed. what are those numbers. Here's an example of the label:
First, I'm going to assume this controller is usb and not wireless, blue-tooth, or gameport.
Second, if you have a usb mouse or keyboard and it works fine, then its going to be that you need to find vista drivers for your device and install the drivers before plugging it in. If you have another usb device, try plugging it into the usb port and if it doesnt work either your computer is faulty or you need to update it.
Vista is rather fickle when it comes to drivers and what not. Instead of windows coming out with the drivers, they let other people come out with them then they endorse those drivers. Try going to logitechs site, they are usually extremely helpful and easy to navigate. You can probably find drivers for your device easily. If you need any more help, let me know, I'll find you a few other solutions.
