This is a very old controller but it should still be detected by your operating system and therefore should work although you may not be able to program any buttons, next time you plug it in go to your control panel and check to see if it is registered under 'game contollers or gaming' if it is then your fs should see it.

Bobbin winder not working


For ~$30, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) that you can use to wind your bobbins. Saves wear-n-tear on your machine and you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine. Just be sure to verify your bobbins are compatible with the Sidewinder.

Why is flightsim X showing error when installing on windows 8 allinone comp


Error 1603 is usually a permission/compatibility problem or you are installing to an encrypted drive.

Right-click the setup file and select Properties, click Compatibility then click Run the compatibility troubleshooter.

No force feedback only with Flight Sim. 2004


O-the sweet feel of a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback lets see if I can be of some help. there could be any number of things going on but I'm going to give this a try. have you checked the settings in Flight Simulator 2004 seems to me that I remember a check box that said disable force feedback make sure that is unchecked. also in the settings for your controller there is a box that says enable force feedback make sure that is checked. then make sure if you are using a firewall like zone alarm you are in gaming mode because this used to give me major headaches with my system to the point I had to detach from the internet and shut down my firewall to play my games. if this doesn't work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the sidewinder this is the last easy option and it should repair any broke links and reset itself into your system. Please let me know how this helped if you need more Ideas just contact me.

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.

MS FlightSim is really tuff on the processor. You are better get a Quad Core Intel Processor, as no upgrade is possible for your Laptop. Also get a good graphic adapter, something like ATI Radeon 4850.

Sidewinder 3d pro plus


try this

Go into Control Panel
Click Switch to Classic View
Double click on Game Controller
Click Add
Find Microsoft Sidewinder (Auto Detect)
Click OK

Also the switch at the bottom on the "single dot" - can't remember if it means digital or analog (seems to remember somewhere someone says it only works in analog mode?! not sure though)
