    I have an older Microsoft Sidewinder joystick (Part No. 91551) that I am trying to use with a new Dell XPS system that does not have a game controller port. I purchased a Belkin adapter to convert the game controller to a USB input.
    The joystick is not auto-detected in Windows XP.
    Are there any drivers for Windows XP. When I attempt to use the Game Controller input in the Control Panel, there is a Microsoft Sidewinder identified. When I select it, I get an error message "Missing Gameport or Gameport Drivers".
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
