: : : I cannot install MS SideWinder Precision Pro software and hardware to my new Windows XP. Any suggestions on where to get the driver, or am I out of luck. Bill

: : I had the same problem and I could install it only by forcing detection from Control Panel/Game Devices. Max
: : In the add new hardware applet choose all devices-all manufactures(in there somewhere i swear)choose microsoft{sidewinder autodetect}this driver allows the ststem to see the controler worked like a charm for me had tostumble across it on my own though... hope this helps you guys..

go to Control Panel , selecect Game Controller, click the add button, scroll down to Sidewinder precision pro and select it. Make sure the joystick is plugged in.

XP does not support the sidewinder software that came with your stick so you will not be able to program the buttons but the stick will work fine.

This really pissed me off by the way. Nothing but a blatant attempt to force you to buy a new precision 2. THIS IS MY LAST MS JOYSTICK
