Try this

Go into Control Panel
Click Switch to Classic View
Double click on Game Controller
Click Add
Find Microsoft Sidewinder (Auto Detect)
Click OK

Also the switch at the bottom on the "single dot" - can't remember if it means digital or analog (seems to remember somewhere someone says it only works in analog mode?! not sure though)

I have a 25 pin microsoft sidewinder force feedback pro joystick which I use with a flight simulator. After updating to win 7 x64 I need to convert this to usb for the hardware to be viable. Any...


hey m8,

stumbled over your post while searching for sullotions for the same kind of problems.
I also have a perfectly working M$ sidewinder FF pro, trying to get it to work WITH force feedback.
However I am affraid there is no way to do this. From what I read is the gameport to slow to keep up with nowaday PC speeds :(

I got the joystick working up to windows XP (in XP it lost its FF tho and slowed down gameplay sometimes. Not sure if that was caused by the joystick or the game itself running in some compatibility mode). I was using the gameport from an old soundblaster live! by the way.

I did find something that may be usefull for you tho. Check the link below:

I havent tested this yet myself and it will require a creative soundcard but I think it will have a better chance of working that using some converter from gameport to USB.

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.

Can't Get wireless to work


first: - goto the PC website and download the wireless driver
http://www.gd-itronix.com/index.cfm?page=Drivers:Selection&locale=en_US under XP it has this device GIGAWLAN V.5.2.0.117.07
HOW TO USE:

1. Download the .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.

2. Execute the downloaded file, and follow the instructions.

3. After the files are unpacked, the folder containing the extracted setup files should open automatically. The setup program (utility\setup.exe) is located in the "utility" directory and must be run to install the software

I would remove the wireless adapter from the device manager - right click and uninstall Now reboot the PC - it will detect new hardware, and start to install the wireless adapter, it should now automatically find the driver from. if not when asked browse to the extraction files
Hopefully the switch and light will now work - and wireless will be enabled

Sidewinder Won't Enable


I uninstalled everything to do with sound etc, removed the sound card (gameport included), cleaned up the registry, installed a new sound card with gameport and it is now working. With a new soundcard, you get up to date drivers and that, I think, was the problem. MSFFP does not like an old Aztech Soundcard. Drivers for the joystick are included in XP and seem to function OK but I doubt whether you will be able to use it in Vista. I have the handbook if anybody wants a scanned copy.

Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Driver


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!!!
