Question about Microsoft SideWinder Precision Racing Wheel

Open Question

Sidewinder v1 connected through USB port. I'm running vista. When I try to calibrate through control panel, game controllers it is treated as a joystick. The brake pedal is looked at as Y-axis. Any ideas please.

Can the microsoft sidewinder force feedback wheel with usb plug work with xbox 360. part # X04-97607 12v 1.3a


The core gaming functions in both Windows and XBox 360 are based in part on DirectX API's so if it works in Vista/Win7 it should work with a 360 game that's not just a cheap port from a different version. The only issue I can see (if it does work) would be control mapping.

Usb plug to 9 pin game port


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.

Sorry it will not work with vista.

Operating System Requirements: This product is designed to run on the following operating systems:
  • Windows 98
  • Windows 95
Additional Requirements:
  • Windows 95/98
  • Pentium 166 or higher
  • 16MB RAM
  • USB port
  • DirectX 7.0 or later
You can try this also

Usually, Windows will find and automatically install the necessary drivers when you plug your game controller into your computer.
• Plug the game controller into the USB port on the computer. The computer can be turned on when you do this. Windows will recognize the new hardware and set it up to work properly.
Note: Controllers that use game ports (and other ports) are not supported in this version of Windows.
Try this second:

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

2. In Device Manager, locate the device you want to update, and then double-click the device name.

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.
