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.

Have microsoft sidewinder force feedback pro with 9 pin connecter.need usb adapter


You have the old game port connector. I have one of those too and researched it and even bought one of the adapters. What I found is that the adapters will generally work EXCEPT if your unit has force feedback. The force feedback versions of the MS sticks uses a special protocol that the adapters can't handle. I haven't looked recently, but if you look for an adapter make sure it says it will support force feedback (most will say they don't). In my case I just bought a new joystick.

There are two x sensor holes in the grip , one top one bottom, they control the force feed back gimbals in the base you need from time to time make sure they are clear just spray them with some alcohol base solution and give them i light probe with a tooth pick to make sure there is no gunk blocking up the holes .

Good luck.

Microsoft Force Feedback 2 joystick


I have the same problem - have lost all stick forces (everything else works fine) and the Forces self test that can be run from the original CD software says there is no electrical power. Have changed the fuse etc. but problem remains. I think something inside the device hardware is bust. Like you I cannot find anything on the Internet as to how or where the device can be repaired!
