You're right; there is no XP driver for this stick.. You have to get an up-to-date stick. I hear the Logitech Force Feedback 3D Pro is pretty good and will work in XP.
Nothing lasts forever, especially if its built by microsleaze. Good luck.

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!!!

Contrary to popular belief, there are drivers in XP for the FFP. If you configure everything properly and make sure the gameport on the soundcard is woking with updateds drivers, you should be OK. I also have the original manual to scan and send out if anybody needs it. The best option is to buy an old box, throw a 20 Gb HDD into it and load Windows 98. Easy!
