    ok i got a problems with the MS sidewinder gamepad the on with the regular Soundcard connection not the USB version

    since XP uses the Sidewinder Autodetect driver wich doesnt work since it gives the games a big delay

    if anybody knows a driver that can fix this or a other way to fix thise please let me know

    Thx alot

    we have a swinder pro game pad, in the soundcard port.
    windows automaically detected it.
    just went into control panel, opened the joystick folder, and told it to auto detect what we had.
    worked like a charm :)
    no problems for 2 1/2 months
