So I have a MS Sidewinder Precision Pro with a Belkin game port to USB adaptor and am running Windows 7.
MS Sindewinder Precision Pro
Windows wont recognize the device. MANY people have this problem and I have searched a LOT and NOBODY seems to have an solution...
(Searched the boards, couldn't find any help)
I figured I would try here as a last ditch effort because I feel that people here must have run into this problem and if anyone has solved it there's a good chance it's a Freespace player
Basically what others have said and what I have tried:
-Windows recognizes it as an unknown device
-No drivers at all for this thing for years, MS says they no longer plan on supporting this device (Since Win 2000 I believe, still worked for some people on XP. Even though it's THEIR product, and a very popular one at that.)
-Cannot manually add devices in windows 7 (Older Windows some people went to CP, add game controllers, add sidewinder pro or something like that.)
-Belkin doesn't support the adapter, have it listed on even their discontinued products page, and dont know what your talking about when you call.)
Anyone have any suggestions? I'll take vista advice too, since usually fixes are the same...
