PC Hardware - Peripheral Issue

My Microsoft Sidewinder 3D Pro doesn't work on my new computer. by ETasse
Posted: 16 Jan 02

Unfortunately, the older Sidewinder digital joysticks do not work at all with motherboards operating at bus speeds over 100mHz, like the ASUS based on the VIA KT266A chipsets.
A workaround is to install the joystick as a regular analog CH Flightstick or Thrustmaster compatible, but you lose the extra buttons.
