Default Side Winder 2 Joy stick

My Microsoft Sidewinder works perfectly in Win 98 ; but when installed in
Win XP (for FS 2000), it is there one minute and gone the next. I have
heard this may be a program/hardware conflict - any ideas ?

Many thanks.

Colin Perkins

Hey Colin.
I use the Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 in FS 2002 on Windows XP with no
problems. There could be driver issue here i think.

To FG Phil,

Many thanks for your comments. The drivers were uninstalled, note that the
drivers were installed using the CD-ROM supplied - for Win98 ! The joystick
was plugged back in and then XP installed the joystick - no problems so far
!

Colin
