Heya gents

Well, i got a question about the compatibility of my old MS Sidewinder FFB PRO (buy in 1998) and Windows XP.
Until now i only used it with Windows 98 as well but i installed at a friend's house to test and he had Windows XP installed. Its joystick's software didnt work well at all and guns were firing at will in FB without any buttoms being pressed. I think its a driver problem? Any idea?


Thanks in advance.

I`m not 100% sure, since i don`t use FFB1 with XP. But i remember my friend having same type of problem. And if i`m not mistaken he ended up letting XP install the driver, never used the original CD.
Maybe just uninstall drivers for stick and let XP use its own?
