Question about Saitek CYBORG EVO FORCE Joystick
Using Vista Ultimate 32 bit OS.
The install CD that came with the stick is only good for WXP.
I went to the Saitek site and downloaded the Vista 32 drivers for the stick.
When I click on the driver file and run the install wizzard I get stuck at the "plug your device" step.The "next" tag stays grayed after plugging the power and USB wires as prompted. I hear the "boing" sound of a device being plugged but Vista does not seem to acknowledge it
Interestingly enough I am able to use an older MS Sidewinder Forcefeedback 2 stick even though it does not appear listed under "game devices" in the device manger after plugging it.
I have contacted Saitek support and they keep telling me to download the Vista drivers from their site,which I did repeatedly and always with the same result noted above.
They just want you to buy a brand new one. Don't do it. If they can't help you, Make the controller RMA on their site, which means, they are forced to by law to send you a brand new one once they receive the controller from you. BTW, this is free, Except some companies, charge S and H. Good Luck. Please rate my solution.
P.S. Try it on another PC with XP, if you own one. If not, try a friends PC.
