Hey, I tried to hook up my Logic 3 Phantom II to my new computer through the USB port and WinXP Service Pack1 said that it didn't know what the joystick was, althout when I put my Sidewinder Gamepad in, It new what it was. Is this an error with WindowsXP, or do I have to activate something in CMOS? Also on the Logic3 Website, it said that WinXP comes with the drivers to run the Phantom II already so I really don't understand.. Does anyone know? thanks

this may sound carzy but do u hav ethe drivers for that and did u try installing them to the machine? Or else you can try that thig in another computer just to find out is it with your o/s or something else. Seems to be usb side is ok cause it detects the device.

What was the exact error message that the OS reported? Also, check to make sure the "USB Controller" setting in the BIOS (under the "Integrated Peripherals"-->"OnChip PCI Device" section) is set to V1.1+V2.0.

Is the Sidewinder a USB Gamepad or one that uses the gameport of the sound/PCI card? I'm guessing it's a USB Gamepad, since I don't think XP supports the older gameport Sidewinders...I know MS doesn't support them anymore afa driver updates. :)
