TreborIznut: Yes, I have a USB adapter that I bought off of Amazon.com hooked up to the original serial port. You suggest this might be the issue? Mille grazie. Yes, I don't remember the details, but gameport or serial devices used through a USB adapter use a legacy thing that has been dropped for Windows 7 and often don't work or have very limited compatibility depending on the device. From what I've read around the internet the Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro is one of those devices that doesn't work well with adapters, which is doubly unfortunate as the so-called 'USB version' of this stick sold by Microsoft was essentially the old serial/gameport version bundled with an adapter instead of being rewired for USB. I got the Microsoft Sidewinder Joystick, similar to the one in the youtube video linked in the previous post, but my Sidewinder Joystick is the Force Feedback version, where it'd vibrate when getting damaged or collisions, firing weapons or thrusters, etc. It is still in the original box with everything in mint condition.

But at some point over the years, the gameport interface that the device uses just wasn't an option anymore.sigh. Oh the good ole days. What I wouldn't give to have that Force Feedback work again.

TreborIznut: Thanks for your help, friend. I think when the time is right, I'll simply buy another joystick.

Sorry to come late to the party, but I have the Precision Pro joystick that had the USB adapter that came in the box. I lost the USB adapter (I got the thing close to 20 years ago after all). I found a part on Amazon that works a treat with some minor modifications (I used a twist-tie): And I had to shunt two of the pins together: And everything was fine. It auto-detected just fine in Windows 10. The shunt may be a teeny bit hard to see, but I'm connecting the second from the left pin with the right most pin.

Don't lose hope! EDIT: Sorry if the picture is a little hard to see (it's in my review of the item from Amazon).

I uploaded another picture here that shows which two pins I had to connect together.

Was not sure where to post this, so here goes. I have a MS Sidewinder Precision 2 Joystick, old but still in working order.

I am presently doing a trial with 'Silent Wings' flight sim. Now I know my Joystick is MS but when plugged into a usb port on my Mac it does work sometimes and sometimes not, it seems to 'drop out'.

I know it was never supplied with a driver for Mac which is a bummer as it is a good product. (no driver at MS either.surprise, surprise. Does anyone here know of a generic driver that may enable my joystick to work on a more reliable basis.
