Question about Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel Wheel And Pedals Set
It does indeed sound like a Vista compatibility issue. The drivers may be confusing the correct axis for the brake and applying it to the Z axis by error.
Your best bet may be to ask Microsoft to confirm if the device will or will not work correctly under Vista. You can try to contact them here.
In past experience, I have been able to get the non force-feedback version of the same wheel to work under Vista by simply plugging it with the USB connection. No extra software was required, it would just detect and then work in games.
If you go to Game Controllers in Control Panel, perhaps you can remove all the listed controllers and reattach the device to the PC and see if it works correctly with games?

Did you try another USB port. Sometimes that's what I have to do. Plus, I have to turn off my machine unplug it, hit the power button, plug back in and turn on the machine. Then things work right, and I haven't solved that, yet. Vista usually works pretty good but, it looks a little backwards by your data. I could tell you to reinstall your drivers and software, I suspect you have so, try my procedure to turning off the machine. Hope this helps. If I come across new information I'll add a comment. I hate when things hang ups too.

Cant you change the setting in Vista to what they are in XP. Then it may perform similar to what it performs in XP. Try it.
