Having problems with your Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel Wheel And Pedals Set ?

Re: Problem with SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel (USB) and Windows Vista. I have two PC's, one running Windows XP Home and the other running Windows Vista Home Premium. Both correctly recognize the device by name, but on running Control Panel / Game Controllers I have discovered a discrepancy between the versions of Windows. My SideWinder Wheel has the following codes. Part No. XD4-97607 Product ID 52178-579-2882895-00000 On calibration I get the following values. XP Acce

Hi there
\015\012
\015\012It does indeed sound like a Vista compatibility issue. The drivers may be confusing the correct axis for the brake and applying it to the Z axis by error.
\015\012
\015\012Your best bet may be to ask Microsoft to confirm if the device will or will not work correctly under Vista. You can try to contact them here.
\015\012
\015\012In past experience, I have been able to get the non force-feedback version of the same wheel to work under Vista by simply plugging it with the USB connection. No extra software was required, it would just detect and then work in games.
\015\012
\015\012If you go to Game Controllers in Control Panel, perhaps you can remove all the listed controllers and reattach the device to the PC and see if it works correctly with games?
Did you try another USB port. Sometimes that's what I have to do. Plus, I have to turn off my machine unplug it, hit the power button, plug back in and turn on the machine. Then things work right, and I haven't solved that, yet. Vista usually works pretty good but, it looks a little backwards by your data. I could tell you to reinstall your drivers and software, I suspect you have so, try my procedure to turning off the machine. Hope this helps. If I come across new information I'll add a comment. I hate when things hang ups too.
