A friend of mine is having trouble with a sidewinder force feedback joystick (gameport connection) and XP Pro. It will not recognise the joystick at all. He has had a look for updated drivers but to no avail. Apparently microsoft forums are full of people having the same problem with the gameport version of the stick. I use the USB version and have had no probs with it (although mine isn't a force feedback). Does anyone know of a possible fix/patch for this as I find it hard to believe that Microsoft would not support their own products for XP.
