I tried to install a Microsoft Sidewinder procision 2 joystick on a laptop with XP on it and it refuses to do so due to a MS dos file compatibility prob or something similar.

Is this to be expected? If so, is there any way around this or a file I can download to bridge the compatibility issue between operating systems?

Ta for help/suggestions.

XP has built in suport for that joystick,Do not try and load any drivers from cd,if you have then they should be removed via add/remove programs.

Just plug the sucker in,Navigate to the control panel,find the gaming devices section,select add new,then pick ms sidewinder (auto-Detect) from the list.....
