    ok thanks but i search for that and i find a website saying that this controller was imcompatible with xp. so do you think that there exist some kind of cracks or something else to run sidewinder on xp.

    if you find something reply!!!!

    Try using or reinstalling standard xp drivers,with & without it plugged in.Click reinstall usb or serial port drivers & also changing to a different port.Also there's known usb1,2 troubles after installing SPack1.Windows XP update lists it under recommended XP updates.
    P.S Dont install the drivers from the CD that came with the Sidewinder,they would be too old.

    The Sidewinder Pro is definitely compatable with XP (it's a micosoft product).
