Sidewinder Joystick Problem

andyh2004 Guest


Having an issue trying to use a ms sidewinder joystick with fltsim 2004.

- very jerky screen
- joystick doesn't control correctly (up and down ok...turns, big problem)
- feeds back at incorrect times

pIII running win2000

Once i disable the joystick the sim works great. I have downloaded the latest driver upgrade for the sidewinder but when i attempt to install msg pops up saying upgrade not required.

I would be thankful for any insight....

Hi andyh2004

When you say you are running Win 2000 do you mean Win ME or that thing which was the forunner of XP

XP has a problem with sidewinder(even thou they are both Microsoft)and are no longer being made because of this
